comment Why do so many languages restrict string literals to a single source line?
If I forget to close a quote, all the content that follows in my emacs buffer becomes font-lock-string-face ;-)

comment Why do we add instance methods to classes?
Not all OOP languages bind methods to a class. Generic functions in Lisp are use to perform multiple-dispatch and are thus not tied to a specific class. You would call it like so (do-something x y z) and the effective method being called would depend on x, y z. But if you work in Java or C++, data and functions are encapsulated in a single entity which is the class, and here you have single-dispatch on the implicit this, which is read as the subject of an operation, separate from the arguments. This is neither worse nor better, it just is (I know which I prefer, though ;-).

Why is English written and read left to right?

comment OMG ASTM and weird languages (like Scheme, Ocaml, Haskell)
I don't use it and can't provide an answer, but I concur that this looks like an universal representation of ASTs for a very narrow subset of languages.

comment (Multidimensional array in C) How to make my output in a vertical position rather than in horizontal when the size of the array is n[3][4]
You need to align columns horizontally. Either you use a large enough static value or you compute the maximum width of each column before printing them. Then, you print the header and each row in a loop. The printf function admits formatting directives to pad output with spaces.

@Julien__ The inner list is not evaluated. I edited the answer to cover this more in details. Hope it helps.
