"C is a small and simple language" they say as they reimplement OOP using macros

@BadAtNames it's so simple it can't be parsed with a context-free grammar

@BadAtNames
You don't build a high-rise with hand tools.
You don't use an excavator to craft an heirloom hand tool.

@BadAtNames if they do that, they're wasting their time

it's usefulness comes from being able to discard OOP thinking for applications where it isn't the best approach

it still kinda sucks as a language, i wish somebody'd make a new C that'd be a solid improvement and also stick around

@BadAtNames "Reimplement x using macros" is the bane of C. "Reimplement x using templates" is the bane of C++.
