Excellent Ms Stob
I was shouting in an enraged fashion the other day at the wall :
Why are the Security Mailing lists full of the same old Array Bounds Violations, lack of input sanitising and cross site scripting vulnerabilities?! (or is it !?)
Why nearly 30 years after C++ coming to DOS and every other platform from AT&T UNIX are people still using C?
I know it's too much to expect people to use Modula-2. But everyone has had time to learn how to program in C++ and port it to everything.
Why is the GUI and Web pages getting prettier but tools to develop Web Sites are like 1970s? Code if anything seems poorer than 1980s.
You have to run it on the server and view with several browsers to even discover if it looks like you intended. Whole chunks of "code" may even be missing without warning. You have to "run" it to get ANY checking or diagnostics.
Don't let me get started on "Frameworks" for PHP etc.
