C is portable machine code. It's designed to expose implementation
details. Every high-level language you use, at the end of the day,
runs on a machine that needs to differentiate between values and
pointers. If "a->b" didn't exist, you'd have to write "(*a).b", and
you'd still have to make changes across your entire codebase if you
decided to change the level of indirection of a variable. How would
you design a language to expose these levels of indirection which did
not require such changes?
