C# is a .net language. It can be compiled into native windows code, but it generally runs within .net...or mono in unix environments.

I thought C# used the .NET stuff for applications.

And "LOL" at the xkcd comic.

And finally, because I'm some kind of masocist, C psuedo-objects > all.

FYI - I would love to get those kind of compile messages. My company still uses JCL, Assembler, COBOL..... yah for the 1950s!! I'm so glad I got all that ther college stuff in my head.

Hey, almost all of our core applications run on a mainframe in COBOL. We use Host on Demand from IBM to send data between mid-tier (my world) and the host. Nothing like trying to reduce transaction volumes to bring down MIPs. Very Happy

Weepy is not as old as you or I either, the big whiner.

We do work with a fellow who while in the Navy met Grace Hopper, probably by running into her and causing her to drop her box of punch cards.
The story goes that Graces mom would not let her date him as he was to old. Laughing Now if the applications and co-workers like that do not tell you we work for lolbanks then nothing will.

Yay for compilation warnings! I do feel a sense of accomplishment when I can get something to compile cleanly. Alas, I usually don't get the chance to make those kinds of changes unless it's at the very beginning of the development cycle and I don't have 10 high priority, must fix bugs that are all hard to recreate much less figure out and the freeze date is in 1.5 weeks.

I started with C++, but we do a lot of C/C++ hybrid stuff at work. The signal processing folks do mostly pure C. Our display folks have moved on to Java, which is kind of bad since they were all C++ programmers that were thrown into Java from X/Motif and forced to learn Java in like, a week. It's a bit of a mess.

These days I'm wandering into the advanced C++ territory, which is kind of scary and kind of neat once I figure it out. I also have to deal with a different evil: CORBA.

I thought Corba was on the way out with Web Services taking over. I guess Web Services will run over CORBA.....

The Navy, our customer, is trying to push for Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) types of things and moving away from CORBA but for now, it's still around. Things don't move as fast as industry technology does.

It's one of those things where no one in this world really knows enough about things and the weapons folks are really, really hesitant to do anything that requires a full re-certification. We'll see. I am hoping we'll move forward in a new, better direction soon. Right now, including CORBA, we've got at least 3 or 4 distinct middleware protocols in the system and it's pretty annoying.

As my father is fond of saying, "The nice thing about standards is: there are so many of them."

Something else that is more fun than removing compilation warnings is upgrading hardware on a server running SCO Openserver 5.0.x.
