Heh heh... for the record, I'm not challenging your knowledge of C++ :) "C/C++" is just one of my pet peeves. I mean, C and C++ are different languages! Yes, their names are similar and their syntax is similar, but, IMO, C doesn't have enough of C++ in it validate "C/C++". I'll shut up now. Nobody wants to hear about this (and if you do... why? I wouldn't ;).

Hello World

A friend of mine asked me about the origin of "Hello, World!" programs. I don't have a clue where there started, but I'm curious now. Anyone know? Update: Peeking in the jargon file is leading me to believe it all started with K&R. Is there any truth to this?

Yay, plugins!

I've updated the example code that uses my dl::lib class that I mentioned a few days ago. It even has a sample plugin, now. Next thing to add is going to be support for C++ name mangling so I can reference *real* member functions. Anyone know of a reference for the C++ name mangling scheme? Or should I just read the c++filt source?


2 hours and 45 minutes 'til my "Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition" final. Damn.
