Barton warned me about you!
I haven't seen the article, but the TITLE is enough to make me flame!
I mean, any language that would name itself after one of C's more
cryptic "character-saving" constructs is not something you'd need to
bother comparing to Lisp, let alone write a paper on it!
C purists (I count myself one), who know the difference between prefix ++
and postfix ++, observe that the name C++ may be loosely paraphrased as
"improve C, then throw the result away and use the old language".
