Expensive in what sense? Assuming you mean cash for the development environment, the price is €0 for Java Standard Edition. Just grab the latest development kit. If you like your programming languages with point-and-click development environments, Eclipse is the way to go.

if it's true
that Java does not support operator/function overloading, that might be the best thing
it has going over C++.

Operators are what they are; you can't do anything to them.

I think that was the point -- you can overload them in C++ (unlike Java), and it's a shame.

I guess I misunderstood you then. It seemed like you repeated exactly what he said.

If you think so, reread more carefully. In particular, the first word of what I quoted of his post.

He made a conditional value judgement.

I filled in the value of the conditional.

To recap, I wasn't sure if operators and functions could be over-loaded in Java.
Deadth999 confirmed that they cannot be overloaded.

Which confirms that Java (from a structure point of view) is more sane than C++,
even if it is a more-wordy, bloated mess to code in.

Discovering someone has changed the meaning of the + sign in C++ is
the begining of a heacache.

Oh, sorry,  I thought the "if" was just a figure of speech, not an actual uncertainty... Thanks for claryifying. Tongue Heh, we've made six posts about this silliness. Embarrassed
