Just a little resistance to getting sidetracked with another learning curve. But then again, why stop learning?
Getting on for ten years ago I realized with horror that I had wasted a good junk of my life learning, getting comfortable with and using about a dozen different programming languages and that the majority of them had fallen out of use, e.g. Pascal, Ada, or had become extinct, e.g. ALGOL, Coral, PL/M. I decided this madness had to stop and I promised myself never to waste anymore time learning yet another f'ing programming language (JAFL) just to be able to do the same old stuff but with a different syntax and a whole bunch of different libraries and so on.
I'm afraid it's hopeless. There will always be YAFL coming along to sap your time and mental capacity.
Memory in C++ is a leaky abstraction .
