We are redesigning the logo for the Knuth C library.

This is the sketch:

It was designed with the cover of the first C programming language book in mind.

The book was published in 1978 and authored by Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie.

Wow, Knuth's gone all out. Nice logo too, very old-school styled. Will it be easier to use it then?

Well, this is the C library. If you want a modern programming language you can use our other libraries: C++, C#, Python, Javascript, etc...

Why did you choose to implement a C library? Why even C++?..

Why C++? Because the node is written in C++17, and I think it is the language that best meets 2 characteristics that I consider very important: Good abstraction and close to the metal/performance capabilities. At the moment it is unbeatable in the combination of these 2 characteristics. Another reason is that I have been programming in C++ since 1997.

Why C? Because it is the language that has the best intercommunication between languages. For example, to be able to create our C# library/wrapper in C we have to do it directly against the C library since modern versions of the .Net framework do not allow communication against C++. Other languages that do not allow to communicate with C++ is Go using its GGo API, we have to do it against the C library. So basically the C library can be used by pure C programmers (who don't like C++) but the main reason for creating it was to create other wrappers on top of it.
