They are a can of worms and a naive programmer can do a lot of bad
things with them. But I know how to use them intelligently and I
wish I had them. I'm guessing Adam would say that Java doesn't have
generics because it's designed for idiots to be able to use, and I
should just stick with C++. But I'm not going back to a language
without garbage collection.
is a typical article about the dangers of templates.
There's got to be a way of doing generics right.
We just haven't figured it out yet, unfortunately.
