Resolutions

It IS quite late in the year to take resolutions. But well, whats the fun in riding with the herd (like resolutions are any fun at all.. bah).
  1. Stop searching for an alternate to GNU Emacs to write C++ code. Inspite of the zillion times cc-mode fails with template code, it still does the job in a much lesser painful way.
  2. Stop trying to migrate to clang (for atleast the forseeable future (6 months?)) from g++. Deal with the complicated template errors. Just deal with it. Its fine. The c++11 sweet-spot is too good to lose.
Now, what was I drinking?

I agree with your first resolution, but the second ? You should really try clang and stick with it for a while. At least, as a C++ newbie, I find the errors output by clang to be more human readable than those by g++.

Not until they have better c++11 support. Atleast the parts I use.
