Usually when I don’t blog it means I am either being very unproductive or I am being jumping around between topics and basically exploring topic. The past month or two has been the latter.

Not having anything concrete to talk about makes writing blog post a little harder and much less interesting.

I did consider writing a long article about why I have found myself enjoying writing in pure C rather than say C++ or rust. The trouble is it has been written about a fair number of times on the web recently, so I don’t feel the need to add to it here. Suffice to say I find C quite nice when writing small things and I know if I have a clean solution in C I probably have a good understanding of the problem I am thinking about.

I certainly don’t think C is perfect but it fits the purpose and as a fast compiling system language alternative, of a reasonable popularity, are few and far between. Should the RAI language ever make it to a public release then I think I will give it a whirl. It should give me back the features I would like in C. I suspect RAI will get a reasonable following even if it does not go mainstream.

Until next month.
