Hello Everybody ,
As a retired programmer ( started my carreer in the punched-card-age: Yes that old ! ) and now programming for fun mostly in C on Linux-machines , I want to delve into the Java-scene .
At first sight this seems a piece-of-cake , taking into considiration the syntax-simularities between C /C++ and Java !
But alas : As one tries to produce some simple basic apps (p.e printing-out the partition-table in the MBR) under Java , a C-programmer stumbles upon a forest (jungle?) of IO-classes , and pointers ... where are the pointers ?
I think the learning-curve will be pretty steep , learning new tricks , and forgetting the old-ones , will be hardest part !
Thanks for all the expertise I'll find in this forum .
