I don't think that "everyone is using C++ or C" is a good reason to say you
must use C or C++. These languages have their pro/cons, but there are a lot
of other languages which can be well suited for DSP; but nobody really try
them. For example, a friend of mine try to use some AD95 in ASIO
applications; I personnally don't know a lot about ADA95, but it has some
caracteristics which seem very attractive ( one standart library for
multithreading / good librarire for realt time stuff / etc... ). And I am
sure that a lot of other languages exist, too...
