suppose it depends what you choose to consider a language. machine language would probably be first, followed by assembly, then fortran... ect.

who the heck voted for perl?

Assembly is a low-level language, right?

I only program with zeros. It's WAY cheaper.

Yeah, it seems like most people know what they're doing when they talk about programming languages. The first high level language:

FORTRAN

or the FORmula TRANslator

Most of you knew that though.
