C++ vs Pascal

Post by ACoimbra » Sat Jun 14, 2003 11:24 am

Every language has good and bad things, it depends in what you do in C++ and what you do in Pascal, some stuff is faster in pascal, other in c++. I guess this is not a real question, just a commentary from a bad experience :)

If you prefer C++, code in it!!!

Yea, it's definetly slower...
For the problem Prime Ring Problem, I AC-ed with a time of 9.17 seconds. With the same algorithm, my friend rewrote my program into C++ and result n 1.3 seconds.

So... I would say...hmm... I prefer pascal since I started to write a program with it first. It's easier for me to code with it. Anyways, I agree that every programming languages have their advantages and disadvantages.

But it is a good choice for programming.

I think, Pascal is the right coice if you want to develope a good algo. If it's to slow I will write it in C++ again. But if you write in C++ first, you'll need lots of comments :)

I have noticed that in arithmetic problems C++ is really faster than Pascal.
For example, on my regional OI contest there was a arithmetic task with GCD, int64 and stuff like that. Algorithm (not fully correct solution) in Pascal would score 40 points out of 100, rest of tests will fail on time limit. Then I decided to write it on C++ and scored 75 points for it. One guy managed to get 80 out of 100.
Now I lay me down to sleep...
