It goes on to say that "a proposed new course on object-oriented design methodology will be offered at the sophomore level for those students who wish to study this topic." Is O-O dying?"
C makes it easy for you to shoot yourself in the foot. C++ makes that
harder, but when you do, it blows away your whole leg.
