With respect to the author, and an understanding that there is probably
much that didn't go into his self-description (add "about.htm" to the
above URL), it sounds as though he knows primarily, perhaps solely, C
and C++, and has done relatively little serious development since he
seems to have spent most of his time either teaching or writing (words,
not source code).
Does he even *know* any real high level languages such as Python?
And the fact that he's teaching C++ instead of just C seems to go
against your own theories anyway... (though I realize you weren't
necessarily putting him forth as a support for your position).
