      Why do people like python?
      it is such an insufferable language
      java is better by a significant margin

      C++ on the other hand is pretty nice once you get used to it

      >why do people like python?
      Because they are brainlets that don’t understand C/C++

      Also don’t take advice from Muskrat. He is a business man, not an engineer/computer scientist and has no idea what he is talking about.

          I didn’t learn C++ by book. I learned C first, and eventually that knowledge translated to C++ by reading cppreference.com. I read pic related for C.

      With python if you get an idea for something you want to make, you just get to work and it’s done. You can have an idea during the week and get it done over the weekend.
      With C++, developing the same program would take you at least a month even for someone used to the language.

      At some point you have to ask yourself, do I need what C++ brings to the table? Using C++ when you don’t need the performance is just ridiculous, it’s like you hate yourself.

        that is not true at all
        if anything, you can write in C++ faster due to more abstractions available.
        also you don’t have to freaking run the program to find most bugs

        Although I somewhat agree with you, C/C++ have more advantages than just performance as some problems just lend itself well with direct memory access. The use of pointers can make solving some problems a breeze.

            Function pointers can lead to fast code with little branching, like for my input system.
            void (*keyFunctions[])(u1 key) = {MoveLeft, MoveLeft+Shift, MoveLeft+Ctrl, MoveLeft+Shift+Ctrl, MoveLeftRelease,MoveLeftRelease,MoveLeftRelease,MoveLeftRelease};
            keyFunctions[(keyAfterConfig + (1 * shift) + (2 * ctrl)) + (4 * up)](key);

            With more keys you just change first number and keep doubling…Key config with a second array that replaces original key and even functions replaced in the array. How would you do this without function pointers, a massive blob of slow if else chains, this would solve all issues for what .25MB even if it was 30000+ branches on 64 bit and are purely storage not loaded into the CPU except for the index when needed…As for variable pointers, how would you not see the benefit…

              you know that compilers usually optimize ifs into bullshit like this, no?
              also pattern matching with rust optimizations will probably lead to faster code

                Even if it did, which I doubt, it would be 100000x harder to write and read, with this I would only need a file with the functions a header with just the array name and make a config file to store and config menu to set everything once…

          Python is amazing, the ability to think of a program or script you would like to have and being able to get it done in a few days feels like a superpower.

        Congrats scrote, you just outed yourself as a pretty shitty software engineer. Fast builds are shitty and prone with bugs. You can get shit done in a week in any language, but are you will spend tge bext 20 year squashing bugs.

        C++ coerces programmers to get the job done right first time. Most python scrotebrains are unaware of anything. They think scripting is programming.

        Static doesn’t imply strong. Idris, ML, Scala and others are strongly typed.
        C++’s type system is pretty weak once you start dealing with templates, SFINAE rings any bells?

          Strong typing means that every variable has an assigned type and implicit type conversions are not allowed. C++ is weakly typed even without templates.

          OTOH Python is strongly typed.

          You’re completely reliant on an IDE to tell you what the type of the thing you’re looking at is, if it can even tell you. With consistent type annotations it could work for thousands of lines, but the projects I’ve worked on never have consistent type annotations. The critical problem at large scale is it isn’t compiled and statically analyzed for errors. This is simply a requirement for any serious language as it eliminates a ton of bugs without needing to exercise that code path.

            A lot of people don’t understand that dynamic typing can be used as a tool rather than an excuse to write scrotelicious code. I agree with you, for the python I’ve written, I’ve only encountered one case where dynamic typing was useful. Otherwise it’s best to just write code that treats typing as static and add type hints to every method

Want to mirror a website and use concurrent connections for it? There’s a module for that, also no need to compile. If you need performance obviously c++ is the answer but if you don’t why waste extra hours

          Python is so bad performance-wise but you already know the answer to that is C, any other arguments are stupid cause why would you restrict yourself to one language anyway? just learn what you need to do what you need to do. chances are I can learn how to do it in Python first because someone has already tried to, then it’s a lot easier to pick up how to do things in other more suitable languages

            python isn’t even bad performancewise (unless you’re doing something which requires every single bit of processing power from your PC)
            even if python is 10000k slower than cpp, for a normal user interface that’s still fast enough that people won’t notice any lag when using it
            when i program something in python, people only notice hitches when i’m either doing something very heavy (which is all C code anyway) or when I’m doing a request from the web

              Python cannot multi-thread, and the workaround for this has bad performance memory-wise. you can use C code alongside it to speed things up but you’re better off writing entirely in C if you really care about performance.
              it’s easy to see this for yourself, just compile your Python into Cython and look at the code. there is so much useless overhead just there to make scripting easier.

                I’m not saying that python is good for high performance applications. I’m saying that people often have the wrong idea of what poor performance means, and that the programs that they would want to program most likely don’t need C++-tier performance in the first place.
                Poor performance in python doesn’t mean that the cursor is going to lag, that when you hit a button there’s a delay of a second, or that the input is going to freeze if you start typing something into a textbox.
                Poor performance means that when you need to run a set of equations on 10 million data points, it’s gonna take a long time.

          Mobile dev, not even memeing. We use internal tools for deployment, obviously.

          Usually if it compiles I push to the deployment worker, unironically.

            So if a person who writes code and has an engineering degree prefers Python over C or C++, does he suddenly forget how to write code and his degree gets revoked?

      I know this is bait but I’ll bite:

      People who think this shit in real life are insufferable scrotes who have 0 concept of how much abstraction there already is between them programming in "real" languages bare metal. The amount of abstraction that’s achieved by going from logic gates to C is freaking astronomical, and you could probably never achieve writing a C compiler from bare metal in your entire life if it weren’t for the work of hundreds of years of mathematicians working all this shit out for you. Comparatively, the jump from C to Python is minuscule in the grand scheme of things. Sure it might abstract away a few data structures and make things nicer to use, but it’s nothing compared to carefully organizing bits of sand together in such a way that they perform actual computation.

      Computer science and abstraction are tied together at the hip. Losers who can’t understand that the continuous abstraction of mathematics is the very essence of computing are the most obnoxious freaking scrotes in the world. The losers who can’t understand that it’s actually harder to think abstractly are the funniest of them all. Sure you can do the equivalent of hand-holding a modern abacus. You’re not accomplishing anything by reinventing the wheel for the thousandth time, you’re just doing it because someone needs some scrotebrained shit to be fast, but you’re not furthering the field of computer-science. You’re not developing new freaking algorithms in C, you’re implementing something that someone (far smarter than you) has already thought of in a slightly different flavor just so you can get a paycheck.

        I love python but having worked with fluid simulations before, I seriously doubt they do them in python. They may script them in python, but I would be my ass that the underlying algorithms that run the sims are done in either C or C++

      Let me give my opinion as someone who started programming recently, it looks tempting because of the english like syntax and being able to quickly write something but after i decided on C#(i picked it because i also want to try Godot and Unity some day) and learned the basics i cant stand Python’s syntax anymore.

      No, Python boxes values way too much for that to be true. (Unless you’re using numpy; that’s pretty competent, even if it is weird as fuck.)

            Not really. Python is very commonly used. It has better libraries for pretty much almost everything statistical related. That’s all that really matters. An extra benefit is that if you need a performance boost, you can easily just glue some C code to it for the expensive parts.

              still waiting for proper GLM and time series libraries, also data cleaning.
              R is just superior for anything beyond simple data analysis. In addition, the syntax is pretty consistent unlike Python which glues everything together with methods and attributes and just looks all over the place.

          when i put print(0:10) i expect to see numbers from 0 through 10, not from 1 through 9.
