so www.unixporn.com is a place to have all your screen-shots. I wrote this program to take a screen-shot and upload it to unixporn: yesplz_march_14_2010.tgz Let me know if it does or does not work, if it doesn't I'll do my best to get it working for you.

Damn it SigFLUP. I was finally ready to go to bed (5am) and now i'm up looking at unix screenshots.

But you do get points for using c. I had assumed that everyone but me had moved to Ruby or Python for tasks like that :laugh:

People get points for using cross-platform assembler (err, C) in situations like these? Must be for effort rather than productivity, safety or maintenance. :wink:

Considering it's the language I'm most comfortable in and it is primary me who will be maintaining it, I don't mind so much

... And we all know, no "good" apps are ever, ever written in C any more... oh wait...

Fair enough. Even I've been known to break out of structured programming into Perl hacking just for kicks. You know, the "write once, read never again" language? ;)

... And we all know, no "good" apps are ever, ever written in C any more... oh wait...


Who is "we"? I'm sure there are some fools in that group if they make such proclamations. The "we" I represent merely say that the use of C is ill-advised in most cases. There are other languages today with great speed, more productive features, higher safety/reliability in core of language, great libraries and much much easier to maintain or mine for defects. Decades of empirical evidence shows most programmers fail to meet these objectives with C, while they produce much better results using other languages. This implies that the common denominator in the failures is the language's attributes. C is very good for certain things, esp. systems or embedded programming, where it's great flexibility is required. (Well, not "required", as plenty of embedded systems are written in Java and Ada.) However, other languages are usually better for most activities, esp. routine application programming. That was the point.
