To paraphrase an old joke: Opinions about programming languages are like a***holes – everyone has one, but most of them aren’t worth putting on public display.
Google “C++”, “Visual Basic”, “LabVIEW” or any other programming language and you will find people who hate them, people who love them, and occasionally a few unbiased people in between. Most of what is posted as fact by the hardcore fans of alternative languages on either side are just plain wrong – it simply reflects their lack of true knowledge and understanding of how the tool works.
This FAQ attempts to address some of the misinformation about LabVIEW (both good and bad) that we have encountered at various times over the years. We are unashamedly LabVIEW fans, and these answers are backed by over 27 years successful operation as a commercial LabVIEW developer. We must know something about what we are talking about!
