I wish this madness would just stop
I have no particular issue with Rust - never used it but keep promising myself I will one day - but let’s face it - the world runs on C. With a bit of C++ sprinkled around (*)
Instead of constantly bashing C because it lets you shoot yourself in the foot, why not just learn how to bloody use it properly and stop writing buggy code. I can’t remember the last time I wrote some C that had a memory error. It’s not bloody rocket science - you just have to apply some common sense and a dose of discipline to what you’re doing. It annoys me how so many people complain about C because they are fuckwits who can’t learn how to use it.
(*) Of course there are still systems out there happily running Fortran and COBOL code, and while they are being replaced as time goes by, they are still there
