Well, if you can't put Java in your brain, perhaps you can put it in your
nose.
Just remember:

when you code, what comes out is Java Beans
when you blow, what comes out is NOT Java Beans    ;-)

Basic, for instance, in embedded code, can be written incredibly fast in
comparison to C, that is, for me. It's perhaps not as elegant, but it often
times gets the job done faster, for a specific task on a very specific host.

not just anyone (no offense to my programmer friends) who has the
ingredients, a whisk, and some hot oven.

known loads) but I question whether it will be a priori platform-independent
stable, and I am quite confident that when compared, 100 of these quicky
programs will compare poorly to those which some concentrated effort was
spent, regardless of whether the dev system is Delphi, C, VC, VB, or
anything else one can think up.
