Tech News / Google Launches A New Programming Language, Carbon
Carbon is an early-stage, experimental programming language that Google launched at the end of last month. It mainly serves the purpose of being the successor language to C++. Like any other programming language, C++ has loopholes. The new language has been built to fix the shortcomings of C++.
After introducing Carbon at a conference, Google’s Engineer Chandler Carruth highlighted how most coding programs today have successors which enable developers to be more productive. Although Rust is a program based on C++ as well, they are not compatible when it comes to migrating C++ codebases. What makes Carbon a powerful alternative to C++ is its compatibility and improvements, such as easier API imports and simpler grammar.
It has been established that the set of features of C++ and Carbon are similar. For this reason, the uses of one would be the same as the other, except for new additions to Carbon. Here is a list of a few points that describe the potential of Carbon:
Additionally, Carbon will have a garbage collector-backed runtime, the lack of which is one of the main issues developers have encountered with C++. However, this language may not be appropriate for every business need.
For example, if you look at the casino industry and the mechanics behind slot payouts, there’s nuance to ensure payouts happen within certain parameters. When it comes to coding Return To Player (RTP) rates, Carbon has not been created for that purpose. Here, it may be preferable to use programs that are specifically made for such actions, such as Python. If you compile a list of examples of the best RTP slots using python would likely be your best bet. Then your customer base will understand which slots should be suited to their preferences. Most slots have an RTP of between 97-99%, meaning it will pay out 97-99% of what’s paid into the system over a pre-defined period.
These are just some of the various uses Carbon is built to have. Despite the vision regarding the novel programming language being positive, there is no practical proof of it being far better than other programming languages.
Nevertheless, it is safe to say that Carbon has growth potential as many companies have shown interest in it. Although Carbon is still an experiment, a source code is available online that you can download to practice on your device.
