Ask Slashdot: Why Are We Still Writing Text-Based Code?

niff Re:because (876 comments)

Quicksort was an example of something simple, that wouldn't be very efficient to implement using a non-text language.

Anyway, kids nowadays with their fancy languages and 800MB frameworks. They have a ".sort()" routine built in and immediately think that anyone writing those 10 lines to suit their specific situation is doing something deeply wrong. :-)

Ask Slashdot: Why Are We Still Writing Text-Based Code?

niff because (876 comments)

Just try to write a quicksort routine using any non-text-based programming language.

Or try to describe a 10 line shell script using UML.

You'll find out that text-based code is actually quite efficient.
