This is silly. Just because I state that you drive a run-down car
doesn't imply you're a bad driver.

No one was or is basing C++ _programmers_

Geez, why do people always take critizism about their programming
language as a personal attack?

That last statement was my point exactly.

You do NOT mix two DIFFERENT languages in ONE source file. C++ and
Objective-C may have a common 'foundation', C, and are therefor
_related_ -- yet they are DIFFERENT.

Ever thought of mixing Pascal and Modula-3 in one source file?
Probably not. Why not? They too are related?!
