Satan is the father of lies

These C liars constantly claim that the work of other people came from C and Bell Labs hackers. Who would do that other than Satan and his servants?

They are so deluded by Satan that they believe the idea of variables and ASCII text came from C.

Okay, what y'all youngins need to understand is what programming looked like before C, and what it looked like with C.

What if, rather than manually typing in memory addresses, you could store stuff in variables that the rest of the program can access BY ENGLISH NAME? Or, when you need to, store memory addresses in variables, which you could still access by name? What if you automated all this, so the program itself allocated, read, and wrote memory addresses to the variables, so no programmer would ever need to do it themselves?

THIS is the level we're working at, OP. For some newage twirp to say it's a "fundamentally flawed language and has many errors" is just mentally painful. By errors he means "It doesn't do this thing we have space to run now, it not doing something that other things do is a FLAW and an ERROR"
We went from "Manually type in the address of the thing you want, or maybe offset stuff from an address if you really want, either way you're keeping a spreadsheet full of hex codes on your desk if you like it or not" to "Lol here it all is, named and everything, no need to know the address, you can simply copy the address of a variable to another variable and use the second to access the first, if something out of scope wants direct access to the first, just give it the second and it can do what the fuck it wants, go wild with math if you like but don't be a twat and TRY to keep track of where everything is"
Do you even begin to understand how much of a DREAM this shit was to programmers? It's all these halfwit newbies that think the compiler should keep everything safe for them no matter what that look at C and go "Now, this language so utterly pure and without clutter, it's FUNDAMENTALLY FLAWED and HAS MANY ERRORS because IT'S NOT FULL OF SHIT THAT DOES EVERYTHING FOR ME, IT DOESN'T GET IN THE WAY, IT DOESN'T STOP ME FROM DOING WHAT I WANT, IT EXPECTS ME TO KNOW WHAT I'M DOING, IT'S SO GARBAGE BECAUSE I'M TO FUCKING DUMB TO FOLLOW THE SIMPLEST RULEBOOK IN PROGRAMMING"

YES YOU HAVE TO KEEP A VAGUE IDEA OF HOW YOUR MEMORY WORKS, BUT C DOES SO BLOODY MUCH FOR YOU THAT ANYTHING MORE IT LITERALLY "BABBIE FIRST DRAG AND DROP HOCKEY GAME"
IT'S NOT EVEN MANAGING MEMORY, IT'S SITTING IN YOUR COMFY OFFICE TELLING THE PR GUY TO GET RID OF DEPARTMENTS YOU DON'T NEED ANYMORE, AND ADDRESSING EMPLOYEES BY THEIR BADGE NUMBER, NOT THEIR NAME, GENDER, WHAT OR WHO THEY ARE, JUST A SIMPLE NUMBER, AND PEOPLE STILL MANAGE TO SCREW IT ALL UP AND SAY "IT'S TOO HARD"

You think programming should suck forever because someone can call and say ``I'm with the FBI and I need your password to fight terrorism'' and some people might fall for that. That is ``mental midget'' thinking and that's why Satan wins. I don't believe that we shouldn't focus on things we can fix because of things we can't fix. Maybe if a less bug-prone language was used and we didn't have to spend billions of dollars fixing buffer overflows, we would have flying cars. Nobody would ever know what that money would have been used for.
