I can't imagine how any OO programmer would advocate dispensing with member
data or inheritance. I use C only for the very, VERY lowest levels of
pre-ASM coding, because it's easier to set up a plain old C function if
you're going to drop down to pure ASM. I don't mean inline ASM, I mean your
own standalone ASM functions where you have to set up either a C or C++
function prototype. C prototypes are easier.
I wonder if a lot of our differences of opinion here, are between:
- guys who use C++ as a high level language
- guys who use C++ as a low level language
I'm clearly the latter. As are all 3D graphics programmers who care about

80% is gobbledygook we make up inside our own heads.
