You don't have RPG or FORTRAN on your list... most of us guys old enough to
program COBOL have had our share of both of the others also... :-))

The reason you don't hate Java is because you don't have C on your list...
and C programmers need and *must* always and forever use pointers. [its in
our blood] anyway, Java is crummy C++ without pointer support... ;-) and
well, without pointers you might as well be using Basic... which I guess you
did for a while... me too... but that was way way way back on the Vic20
Motorola 6502...

Java functions... its slow, but it works. C++ is better, C is even better, and
with a TCL/TK wrapper is the best!

Java is like coffee... before I drink it I always want to add something like
cream and/or sugar... then I remember that the stuff is just bad for me...
