<p><i>No-one, so far as I can see, is claiming that C++ actually made it significantly easier to write this linker.</i></p> <p>Huh? What is this, <a href="http://www.airs.com/blog/archives/56">then</a>? <i>The new linker I am working on, gold, is written in C++. One of the attractions was to use template specialization to do efficient byte swapping.</i> Of course it's not the only place where gold is using C++ to speed things up, but look like you are complaining about C++ usage without looking on code, without any research, "just in principle"... Not very constructive at all...</p>
