comment Should I use a parser generator or should I roll my own custom lexer and parser code?
I've already finished building my own lexer generator and I was quite far along with building my own parser generator when I decided to implement a different algorithm instead. It didn't take me that long to get it all working, but then again I didn't aim for 'high performance', just 'good performance' and 'great asymptotic performance' - Unicode is a bitch to get good running times for and using C# already imposes a performance overhead.

comment What are the hardest parts of the C++/C#/Java programming languages?
Re-reading your question ("I'm trying to use this to guage my current level of ability and what i wish to aim for."), then no concrete answer will ever answer your question: if you want to be proficient at a language, you need to know many different parts of it: there is no linear path from the easy stuff to the hard stuff.

comment What programming language generates fewest hard-to-find bugs?
C# allows safe pointers: all pointer arithmetic is checked. Therefore, I believe it should be up there with Java.

comment What are the main advantages and disadvantages of LL and LR parsing?
I personally wonder if this is the best site for these kinds of questions. I'm not sure if StackOverflow or CSTheory would be a better place though...
