  What I Hate About Your Programming Language
Subject:   C, C++, Java, maybe others - zeroth element arrays

Response to: C, C++, Java, maybe others - zeroth element arrays

I will assume your response was *not* tongue-in-cheek. (I posted the message you replied to.)


Are you suggesting that *not* using zero means we may run out of digits? Ridiculous. Zero is not an element number - it is an offset.


This is an example of bending the humans to the machine, rather than bending the machine to the humans. IMHO, a fundamental mistake in the approach.

      • There's a zeroth element?
