Comment: Layering unix to encourage safer code (Score 1) 290

by The OPTiCIAN (#46417357) Attached to: Interview: Ask Theo de Raadt What You Will

Hi Theo, it's hard to imagine a unix being written in anything other than C. But do you have feelings about how we should be writing code for application layers? Would you like to see less written in C, and more written in Ada, Scheme, Java or other languages that make leaks less likely. Have you played with Ada, do you think its type model is a general improvement over what's available in C?
