<h2><a href="when-c-is-the-best.html">The Essay Itself</a></h2>

<p>
This is an essay I wrote that tries to explain why the C language is still
sometimes the best language to use for writing a software
application. I originally planned
on publishing it at <a href="http://www.onjava.com/">OnJava.com</a>, but
the editors there rejected it. As I realized, one problem with it was that
I explained why the Freecell Solver code will be slower in Java, but not
why it will also <b>feel wrong</b> in Java.
