Comment Re:C Programming Language (Score 3, Insightful) 594

You can write object orientated code in C.

The OP never said you couldn't, they said: "no pretense to be object oriented" (Emphasis mine.)

And as far as sophisticated code, I guess the author doesn't consider operating systems or most system programming to be sophisticated.

Again that's not what the OP said, they said C has: "no pretense to be ... sophisticated" They're saying C itself is not sophisticated, that has nothing to do with the code written in C. Sand is not a sophisticated medium, but I've seen sand sculptures that are definitely sophisticated.

However, you are 100% correct in challenging the "assembler-like" comment.
