Yes thats true, all you need is the documentation and you can work with almost any language. I guess what Im thinking of is the content, like an essay in a webpage. Languages have limits but abstract ideas dont I believe.
Ive always wanted to believe that every problem has a solution. Sometimes it seems impossible but most of the time it just looks that way because we dont have enough information about things or resources I guess, but if we did well...
And as was said already, sometimes we need something that we dont know how to deal with to push us to think of new ways to do things or better - to motivate us.
As for the futility of the attempt to solve a seemingly impossible problem, if you solve it then the feeling should be beyond words, if you dont I think the new things that youd learn along the way could be enough as a reward for the effort. Sometimes these things even lead to solutions to other unrelated problems.
I guess that goes for a lot of us too, remembering everything. But as long as you have the logic and concept... an "if" statement may have different forms in different languages but the idea is the same, supposedly.
At some point, thought not efficient or best, I can program everything that the people here at work asked for or would ask of me. By then, I think I stopped studying as hard as I did at the start, if I still did. It just felt like... "why?" Theres the answer of "just to get better" but then comes... "for what?". A few weeks ago, I came up with this outrageously impossible project (seemingly idiotic) that I wanted to build and its been really pushing me to learn a lot of new things and relearning everything. I guess that answered "for what?" concretely for me. But this is just me...
