C++

I remember something said once about early dwarf fortress versions being written in C (might have been Slaves to Armok 1)
Any way... Pretty sure it's C++ now

Alright, thanks. But is there any way you can verify that? Because you sound a little unsure.

If you check out Dwarf Talk (2 or 1, not sure) Toady sez that at first DF was written in C and then rewritten in C++

Yep, that's it.  C then rewritten in C++.

"Having faith" that the bridge will not fall, implies that the bridge itself isn't that trustworthy. It's not that different from "I pray that the bridge will hold my weight."
