Like I said, I think C++ had some child diseases that were partly
due to the particularities of the development process, but
possible a bit inevitable as well, because of the task at hand,
which wasn't easy.

Anyway, I'm not basing my reasoning on the numbers of "errata"
corrections of some book.

C++ is straightforward because C is very straightforward, and OO
is more or less straightforward, and C++ is C with OO language
support. And, my experience from C++ confirms this.

Are you saying, if you are not a member of that committee, you
cant understand C++?
