I'm sure it has, it's called benchmarks. And they can't top C or Fortran, last I saw. But that is not the point. And did you not see my point about how it's just an initial usage of C to put out php and html/css/js, and that 'complexity' must be as simple as a printf function in another language. Why don't you snatch your nose out of php's asshole for a second to realize it's not the center of a multilanguage project, and sometimes neither is C, or any other language It's the consumers, or the designers, or yours. > >>> >>> Just a case scenario.

Maybe by 'problems' he meant other than what you think are problems. ANd maybe he thinks your job is to report maybe employee unhapiness, instead of employee misbehavior, maybe the miscommunication is in terminology of the word "problem" That being said.

And I don't think you get that If in the end you'll move toward it, then why not start out at the prototypes base roots.
