[Webfind] How to kill a dragon with various programming languages

There's a beautiful princess, prisoner in the highest tower of a castle, guarded by a mighty dragon, and a fearless knight must rescue her…

This is how each language would manage to rescue the princess from the hands of the dragon
  • Java - Gets there, finds the dragon, develops a framework for dragon anihilation with multiple layers, writes several articles about the framework… But doesn't kill the dragon.
  • .NET - Gets there, sees the idea of the Java developer and copies it. Tries to kill the dragon, but the monster eats him.
  • C - Arrives, looks down at the dragon, pulls out his sword, beheads the dragon, finds the princess… And ignores her to see the last checkins of linux kernel cvs.
  • C++ - Creates a basic needle, and gathers funcionality until he has a complex sword that he can barely understand… He kills the dragon, but gets stuck crossing the bridge because of memory leaks.
  • ... click here for the rest of the extensive list

Funny!  I am not even a programmer (though I occasionally play one at school, when I go), and I still find it hilarious. ;D

Classic. There's another version involving different rock styles. Now if I could find an English translation...

I like the Videogame Programmer one and the one in the comments about Perl. :-D

The perl one was pretty good from one of the comments ;D
The clock is running. Make the most of today. Time waits for no man. Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift. That's why it is called the present.

it somehow reminded me of 99 bottles of beer. My favorite there is the perl program with code in shape of bottles.
