Which programming language do you dislike most? - Page 8

post #71 of 446
I absolutely hated Dr. Racket which is a variation of Lisp. I could not stand all the cursed parentheses.

Partially the hate derived from me growing up with implicit languages, not functional.
Had three years of programming (BASIC, VB, C++) in high school. First year of college it was Dr. Racket.
The fact that I could not define variables and debug my code with output statements drove me insane.

There were way too many nights where I was up until 4 A.M. debugging, trying to find where I had misplaced a parentheses. Causing errors and uncompilable code.

Thankfully I have put in my time with functional languages, namely haskel, and our relationship has gotten stronger.

Now classes are using Python, C++, and Java. Thank the Deity of your choice.
Hopefully I will never have to return to my freshman year of poor debugging and even worse bracket matching.

sounds like the problem was that you didn't use a good editor. Any good editor will tell you if you have a parenthesis missing.

Verilog.

Hate it because it is hard to understand models that aren't designed by yourself and often descriptions are misinterpreted or synthezised incorrectly. VHDL is far more reliable after some practise.

I don't really understand why you particularly hate it. Now I haven't had any experience with it (maybe you have) but I don't think there is anything wrong with it besides the really confusing and tediously difficult syntax. (Wiki tells me) redface.gif

One of my profs forced us to program in ML for a semester. Half the class dropped the course, and he had to bell curve the final exam so hard it was basically like "everyone gets an extra 40% added to their grade"

Someday I should write one of the services at work in WhiteSpace just plainly for the heck of it... Does a port for .Net exist?

Back while studying we had this MatLab stuff for calculations and whatever. It was the most horrible thingy so far, even worse than TCL/TK. Mainly because I suck at math (royally)

Did you guys find many of ML's Easter eggs?

The language I hated most at university was Lambda Calculus. It's more of a mathematical and logic notation, yet it was taught as a programming language. Because one of our professors was respected as an expert in this field, so our syllabus gravitated heavily towards it. Several of my first and second year courses had exam questions where you were expected to be able to write out lambda or Z notation on the fly. I still have nightmares about this smile.gif

Isn't it a bit like writing code in Maple?
