Hello: No. You have the means to perform a task, but you aren't actually using the language that it was written in. Just as your not using php if you check your email through webmail. What makes scripting languages so nice right now is the fact that they are so powerful. I can write a quick script to perform lots of neat little tasks and automation on my linux box, and I do this day-to-day depending on what I need. The same thing would be way harder to write in most cases in a low level language such as c++. I reserve c++ for the times when I want speed and optomizations, while scripting languages are used when there's not an intensive application that needs to be written; it's all dependent on your requirements.The bonuses of learning a low-level language like c++ are two-fold. First, you can apply the same ideas to other languages (such as conditionals, classes, loops, etc). Every language handles some things a bit differently, but the same idea still applies. Second, you can understand what happens when you create a byte array of 4096 bytes, as opposed to just knowing that it is there.
