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

My point was that to think about the thing in a way that is consistent with the tangible world I am forced to treat the concept of zero as something other than zero.


If you're counting your children, which one is the zeroth kid?


Bending the humans to the machine, rather than bending the machine to the humans. Bad approach, IMHO.
