gregvp shell is not PL, i'd say it's a tool to merge coreutils in something interesting
I think, guys, there won't be any addition, so i'll vote for C as the closest to assembler on performance level.

I love to hate Java, but I love writing it. Programs write like butter. When I have to go back and write in C or C++, I'm reminded how nice Java is.

Now the reasons I dislike Java are all runtime, it's a memory hog and despite what some say, I've never seen a Java program outperform a well written C or C++ program.

Another vote for Fortran, why isn't it in here? From a scientific programming/numerical point of view, it's definitely a major player.

My vote is for FreePascal. Since it's not on the list, I'll have to skip voting on the Programming Language of the year.

R is missing. Although a specific programming language, it would deserve short-listed.

Question just a thought

what about S? And Octavia? GNU Plot?

Jeremy,

maybe for the 2010 polls you could split it up into multiple sections.

eg:
  • Compiler Languages
    C, C++, Fortran, COBOL, Java etc
  • Scripting Languages
    PHP, Python, KSH-93, bash etc
  • Programming Environments
    R, S, Octavia etc
I'm quite happy to vote for "C" but also would like to have the option to vote for good old Korn Shell as well (multi-dimensional arrays in a shell script anyone?).

Thanks!

Regarding phlyer's suggestion, you could rename "R" to "R/S": R is a dialect of S. (Although this could make the entry more ambiguous.)

I wonder - how many of these will get more than 1 or 2 votes?

True, but isn't it then all about Fortran or C?

There are probably more users of R than one would think. But then, you would be right that it is not likely to get many votes on this site: many of its users are on Windows.

Still like C best, especially with GTK.
