That may be true. I'm looking forward to C++11. It may take a year or so
before we shift to it. A lot of SLAC is still using RHEL 5 and the
compilers that come with it (gcc 4.1 IIRC)
Modern C++ may be a bit like modern PHP... something usable. I've been
spared from having to deal with PHP < 5. But I'm still scarred from
dealing with C++ with its initial implementation of STL, where you had
to be *very* careful about how you used STL auto_ptr<> and in particular
could not use it for STL containers. Or is it the other way around?
C++ with boost in 2013 has been less painful than C++ with STL in 1999
or whatever. But still. I still have the feeling with C++ that if I look
sideways at something, or use the wrong combination of whatever, the
whole thing will come crashing down on me. The principle of worst surprise.
