Submission + - Snopes.com debunks old C++ 'interview' hoax (networkworld.com)

netbuzz writes: "If this one has escaped your attention, the claim goes like this: “C++ designer Bjarne Stroustrup admitted in an interview that he developed the language solely to create high-paying jobs for programmers.” The 1998 “interview,” which never happened, also “quotes” Stroustrup saying all kinds of outrageous things about his motivations for designing C++, and has dogged him throughout the years, even earning a place on his Web site’s FAQ page. Last week Snopes stepped up and put its official “false” on the still-circulating versions of the fictitious “interview.” Does Stroustrup think it will help put the matter to rest? “Not really.”"
