andrea.sartori writes: Chris Adamson posted a very interesting article on pragprog.com, defining C a "punk rock language". The musical analogy is developed and used to compare different types of programming languages. Pickup line: 'One of the defining traits of punk is the do-it-yourself (DIY) ethic, a rejection of the need to buy products or use existing systems, and instead to attend to your own needs. This attitude clearly suits C programming as well.' And: 'Any idiot with a Slashdot handle can talk crap about anything. It’s when you piss off the smart developers that you know you’re working with something interesting.'
