I love developing software :)

I do most of my work with C++, though I have done a fair amount of web programming with PHP. I work a lot with Qt.

Did I mention that I hate Internet Explorer? Don't get me started... (see this post)

If you are looking for a good text editor, I highly recommend PowerPad.
(Yes, I wrote it.)

I can use Java ME.

It should be noted that XHTML provided a solution for the mess that HTML's poor specifications created.

Perl sacrifices verbosity for source code size.

I heartily agree with the JavaScript semi-colon insertion feature - completely useless.

comment Are there any compilers that attempt to fix syntax errors on their own?
True, but what I really meant was "Are there any compilers that attempt to correct invalid syntax by making guesses based on context." The fact that the compiler corrects invalid syntax does not make the syntax valid. Also, I realize that such a tool would be useless for code development.

I am using Qt currently (see my profile). But really, this boils down to .Net vs. Java. I obviously can't use Qt on a mobile platform (well, except for Symbian).

"I'd say go with what you like." - How will I know that if I've never used either of them?

@jase: I use Qt regularly, so that's not really something new for me.

This is the kind of answer I was hoping for... as I mentioned before - obviously such a feature has little practical use, but would provide a great way to learn some techniques that could be applied to other things. (Language parsing, etc.)

I know that. Such a compiler would have no use for compilation, but the concept is quite interesting and has learning potential.

comment Why no developer API in C++ for Google or Yahoo mail?
-1 Completely disagree. Certain web applications would be much better designed in a language like C++.

comment Is there any reason to use C++ instead of C, Perl, Python, etc.?
I am right up there when it comes to loving Linux, but honestly, I have to disagree on this one. C++ is only as bad as the people who use it. There's nothing inherently wrong with it itself.

+1 for "no, not even Java" :)

@Ben: When I say the reference is always valid, I don't mean that it always points to valid memory - I meant that there's no such thing as a NULL reference.

comment What features would you like to have in PHP?
This is definitely one area I would like to see an improvement in.
