I'm suprised no one has chosen FORTRAN [as of 18:26 10-03-04 GMT-6:00]. FORTRAN4 is still widely used and OOP-FORTRAN is making a comeback.

Hey, AbSoft recently released a FORTRAN77 compiler of MacOSX! (Or, at least I think I remember reading that; I could have made it up.)

As of now, I'm the only Python programmer. *feels left out*

Just because you are the only one who programs _mostly_ in python, doesn't mean that you are the only _python programmer_. I program in Python, (and love it,) but for the past year, most of my programming has been in z80 asm.

Geewiz... do they still ship that with Windows? (Win2k still comes with QBasic). GW came with my version Windows 98.

I dunno. I learned it waaay back in 7th grade when my teacher decided he was going teach us programming. Which was the most awesome math course ever! : )
We mainly learned how to animate with it.

Anyways I had to mention it because it was my first language ever. *sniff*.

I actually program in Visual Basic, QBasic, Javascript, TI-Basic, z80 assembly...
But I could only check one option.

Sweet, those are my main languages, except for VB. JS was my first language. :) That was... wow... over four years ago.

My first language was QBASIC, which I started using when I was around 10, I think. :-)

I started trying to work with QBASIC when I was about 8. I remember that all the documentation that I had was from a very old computer that my dad had -- the type that used tape players to store information -- with a BASIC interpreter that was pre-GWBASIC.

My first program was named 'dots'. It asked for a number, and then printed that number of periods. Funny thing is, I couldn't figure out what 'FOR' was used for. And, the little book didn't mention 'WHILE', so I had to figure out how to create a non-everlasting loop using IF, GOTO, and line numbers.

I still have that old hard disk laying around... I ought to take a look at that code again.

Ruby! It's all about ruby. No one has mentioned ruby once on all these many postings. It's a quite nice language, I would say. Scripting language. Very object oriented. The syntax also makes for short, powerful code in a lot of cases. My only real objection to it is that it is a scripting language.

But, like I said - It's a quite nice language.

Ada95 and Eiffel haven't been mentioned either. They are nice OO languages, they reduce bugs and make debugging easy. Eiffel is simple to write in, unfortunately a 'hello world' project takes about 20MB.
What I don't like of these languages is that they rely on C++ to compile, then why not writing directly in C++ ? :)

What do you mean they rely on C++ to compile?

Surely you're referring only to a specific implementation of an Ada and/or an Eiffel compiler, are you? The Ada language was designed in the 70's, and C++ was designed in the 80's (1982, I think).

I don't remember about Ada (I used adagide, but which compiler?) and you're right, it was designed in the late 70's... althougt Ada95 is a revision terminated in 1995 I don't see why they should have created such a dependency form C++.
About Eiffel: AFAIK it "translates" the code you write in C++ and then compiles it, thus relying on a C++ compiler (I'm referring to ISE EiffelStudio)

I program quite much in Prolog, SML and Haskell, none of which can be fit into any of the categories, the 'others' included...

I tried to learn Prolog, but I can't think of any real-life uses for it. How do you typically use it?

Its main strength is, as its name suggests, in performing logical inference, therefore it often appears in various AI applications. It's also quite strong in symbolic data manipulation, especially tree structures (although it can work with any topology). It is often packed with constraint solving systems (CLP*) that can do an amazing job in general solution searching tasks (routing, scheduling, arrangement problems etc.). Sometimes it is used as a configurational tool or a substitute to makefiles.

Yay... I'm not the only one programming in Objective-C!

@class pointlessClass
{
NSTextField *myText;
}

-(void) sayString:(NSString)inString
{
[myText setTextValue:inString];
[myText setEnabled:false];
}

@end
