Where's FORTH?

Quote:
Although not as popular as other programming systems, Forth has enough support to keep several language vendors and contractors in business. Forth is currently used in boot loaders such as Open Firmware, space applications, and other embedded systems. An implementation of Forth by the GNU Project is actively maintained, the last release in November 2008.
It'd be interesting, at least, to see if anyone still uses it.

Cheers

Hehehe...

I thought the same for FORTH, COBOL, and Pascal, and was going to comment about COBOL being on the list. However, a quick research revealed that all three are, in fact, still very much in use today.

Ehhh, where's 'shell script' ?? Maybe it isn't really a 'language' ?
That's all I need, I plan to take over the world with a shell script. Muuahahahah!!!

ActivePerl finally added DBD::Oracle into the base 5.10 install, which is a 'win' in my book (I know purists like to install from CPAN and all, but it's easier to just drop active perl on the linux and windows boxes for instant cross-platform awesomeness with no extra config)

Many of them do not compete in the same area. So it is hard to say which is the best. Since Go is new in 2009, my vote goes to Go.

Python was certainly the most hyped in 2009. So for exposure, there's a vote.

Is there a reason Groovy is not on the list? http://groovy.codehaus.org It's popularity is growing very rapidly in the JVM space, and considering how many of it's siblings are listed, I think it belongs here.

It gets my vote anyways.

Groovy.
