ARS and the other Languages

Another important theme in `Programmierung pur' is the effect of ARS oriented thinking on coping with existing popular programming languages.

The book tries to demonstrate that even learning of new programming languages will be a lot easier and need less time after an intensive training in A++, leading to earlier productivity in the new programming language.

The languages that have been chosen for this demonstration are: Java, Python, C and C++. The following thoughts were responsible for these choices:

  1. Java is the most popular programming language.
  2. Python is a relatively young language, that may proudly count a high degree of simplicity, of expressivness and of flexibility as some of its features.
  3. C++ is the programming language that is used mainly today for complex applications with a strong need for efficiency.
  4. C is the programming language upon which C++ was built. It is still the language of first choice for system level programs like operating systems, device drivers etc., where efficiency has the highest priority.
