Pointers in C. You love'em or you hate'em. A lot of room to shoot ourselves in the foot or hang ourselves. Or doing both because someone thought it would be genius to tie the guns to the rope.

    I don't think pointers are hard. People use it everyday non intentionally and they don't care. Passing by reference in c# or the fact that you pass the reference of the non primitive object in java or JavaScript. For a second let's not care about the implementation - it is the same thing as pointers. It is all there. And we've decided pointers are hard. I disagree.

    @Lisanna oh come on. Even cpp typically implements passing by reference when a hidden pointer. I know that difference exists and what it is but it is so small that I dare to say it is essentially the same thing.
