comment How can I convince my boss that ANSI C is inadequate for our new project?
@OlegV.Volkov "Real-time" does not necessarily mean "fast" (e.g., sub-milisecond latencies). Since it's running on non-RTOS, it doesn't matter whether it's C or C#, if it's fast enough.

comment Is Oberon really “a better Pascal”?
Can EXIT escape multi-level loops? If not, omitting GOTO was a bad decision.

comment Materials on structural languages design?
@mouviciel Yes, it would most probably still use a struct in order to preserve source-compatibility.

comment Is it any good to use binary arithmetic in a C++ code like “C style”?
@zxcdw The myth of asymptotic running time and "big inputs". O(n^2) algorithm may have low enough constant that it is faster than the best known O(n log n) if I know that my particular problem instance is limited to, say, n < 100. FWIW, I have managed to implement a quick sort that significantly outperforms std::sort on a large vector (whole contents of "Ana Karenina") of strings.

Yes, (mostly) rubbish. Some algorithms and data structures (radix sort, tries, etc.) are efficient because they exploit binary representation.

comment introducing pointers to a large software project
The assert() in your for-loop is unneccessary, at() method already does bounds checking.
