Programming is hard. I hope no one would argue that. But the topic of new programming languages, or more exactly, search of a "silver bullet" is always highly popular with software developers. The most "trendy" topic currently is superiority of one programming language over the other. For instance, C# is "cooler" than C++. Although holy wars are not the reason why I'm writing this post, still it is a "sore subject" for me. Oh, come on, C#/lisp/F#/Haskell/... won't let you write a smart application that would interact with the outer world and that's all. All the elegance will disappear as soon as you decide to write some real soft and not a sample "in itself". Further are several fragments in C# taken from the module of integrating the PVS-Studio static code analyzer into a popular environment Microsoft Visual Studio. I want to show by the example of these fragments that it is quite not easier to write in C#, for instance, than in C++.
