c++ vs c#
« on: August 18, 2015, 05:39:12 pm »
My current requirements are such that I am focused on c#.

Some advantages for us:
1: c# changes with windows 10 net 6 and vs2015 it compiles native ans is fast
2: i have dx9c and physics in pure c#
3: still on trak for end of year
4: sfc2:eaw upgraded graphics network and works up to win 10
5: still need models
6: need to understand q3 for the sfc3 ui

Thoughts?

Didn't we have this conversation before about what programming language to use?

How does SFC II and SFC III affect SFC IV?  Are you updating those as well?

That is bad, I actually remember all of that.  FORTRAN was somewhat like BASIC except how it compared integers (.LS. for less than for example), lacked line numbers and there were column restrictions.  With COBOL you sort of had to be a English major, CMDR Hopper had to be as wicked as they come...  lol

My Assembler professor one day told the class that we were having trouble converting decimals into hexadecimal and back (well duh) so he made us write a program using any program we wanted that converted decimals into hex.  I wimped out and used a recursive function to do the math in PASCAL.  My program worked and took up less than a page.  It also brought the entire University's mainframe down to a standstill whenever my program had to convert a number greater than 100,000.  One guy used COBOL to do the same project after the professor asked us not to, it took him over 50 pages.

Can't program myself though I know somewhat about C and Basic.  Cobol and punch cards just have a reputation that has an aura of evil and psychosis.

COBOL comes to Visual Studio 2015

When you think of Microsoft’s IDE, Visual Studio 2015, perhaps you can be forgiven for not immediately thinking of COBOL. Micro Focus is rectifying the dearth of COBOL support in Microsoft’s newest of IDE with today’s release of Visual COBOL for Visual Studio: a software package that brings full support for the ancient language into the modern enterprise life-cycle environment.

As with previous releases of Visual COBOL, this version includes full-fledged support for the language: IntelliSense, smart editing, auto-complete, code analysis and debugging tools are all here. Additionally, Visual COBOL allows developers to mix their applications with .NET and C# code, bringing more flexibility to their COBOL stacks.
