anyone remember Dr Dobbs in the early 90's mentioning a language C+ ? the only thing online I can find is a reference to that, but no info on the lang (any links any one ?)

What you probably mean is this:

It is supposed to be a joke based upon negative experience with C/ C++/ 
Forth/ other langs. Note that it has nothing to do with a "real" C--.

seeing the use (yet again of C<sym>[<sym>]) anyone remember Dr Dobbs in the early 90's mentioning a language C+ ? the only thing online I can find is a reference to that, but no info on the lang (any links any one ?)

I've seen C-- b4, when looking at Imp and some things like VM's and
bytecode/generic Asm/ IL systems for some insperation for one of my own
ideas.

the C<sym><sym> just reminded me of yet another use of the simlar idiogram,
c+  which was going to be the new c++ in the 90's and wondered if anyone has
any links to any info on exactly what c+  offered that D/Java/C# don't
 C+  was a real lang http://www.ddj.com/articles/1993/9310/

 quite enjoyed http://wombat.doc.ic.ac.uk/foldoc/foldoc.cgi?C%2b-

on my search for C+ 

I personally think Imp looks a better impl lang than C-- but only skimmed
them.

Forget it, it doesn't work well!
It's simply no use.
I know it well already and have thought about using it. No. Not till 
they make a GCC or .NET plug or something nearly as useful.
Besides, it's inherently a slow compilation process, outputting c-- 
istead of a "real" IL.
