This question was rolled out in our data structures Mid Term or test, i can't remember which. I'm pretty sure it was the mid term. The actual question if I remember correctly was something like. 'Is C++ the King of all Languages, it will always be around and is the best programming language ever made.' Well, that was a giveaway. I answered 'YES'. Well I got it wrong. New and better languages can always come up. It's been like 7 years, but C++ still holds its rank as King. IMO opinion, if you know C/C++, you pretty much KNOW programming. It's also the hardest language to master IMO.
