The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Programming Questions/Poll


Firstly, thanks for reading this thread. :-)

I was wondering if anyone here or otherwise uses any of the following:

B
FORTRAN
ASM(any assembly)
BASIC
PASCAL
C#
VBscript
Tcl/Tk

Also what languages do you know? Java, C, C++, D, javascript, php, python, perl,
etc.

I just want to get a feel what languages are still in use and what most people are using. If you use any language not listed here please put that down also. :P

Please also note any C/C++ development suites for GUI programming in Linux. If I write with Qt can that code be run in a GNOME desktop. (how to write general X programs with desktop environment specifics).

Thanks for taking this poll and answering these questions.

And that wasn't really a poll.

I am using C++ , have used VB before (i had so much fun with that, didn't get to use in the real world though) I have also used Basic before. (C64, such a long time ago) C/C++ is crossplatform. so it should work in KDE and GNOME. I was an RPG III programmer for 10 years, that ran on a mainframe, System 38. (that was a long time ago too) As to good sites... there are so many, check out the programming forum.

None of these... I think I'll try tcl/tk soon.

Java*, C, Pascal, perl, php*, a few memories of Basic, matlab* (ok, it's not really a language)

used quite a lot of Java/C/C++/Perl lately, and spent a lot of time doing some ASM (x86 32 bit protected mode)

I wouldnt say iv used any of them in "the real world" as such though, since i dont code for a living. I am the author of a lot of vapourware though

one day il actually finish something...

I miss using BASIC - I quite enjoyed POKE-ing my programs

that brings back memories, i remember writing z80 programs on paper, hand assembling them, and then putting them in memory with poke, it took me about a week of that before i wrote my first proper basic program(a for loop and input statement) to do it for me.

anyway back to the question at hand, im not sure if you mean languages i use regularly or languages i can use so i'll just list everything. im not sure if latex or sql qualify as the type of language your thinking of but ive listed them anyway.

languages i know very well:
C, C++.

languages i know enough to use:
php, java, fortran 90/95, basic, x86 assembly, z80 assembly, postscript, sql, latex

by basic i mean the original language or simple variations of it i dont know anything fancy like vb or dark basic. also when i say x86 assembly i dont know any extensions like mmx and i cant program the fpu, so essentially i mean 486 assembly without an fpu.

languages i can fiddle with but cant really use:
tcl/tk, mips assembly, shell script, perl, pascal, maple, matlab, common lisp

as for what ive used recently: C, fortran, php, sql, latex, postscript

If I write with Qt can that code be run in a GNOME desktop. (how to write general X programs with desktop environment specifics).

my knowledge of gtk, qt, and xlib is quite limited but as i understand it gtk and qt just translate their high level calls into lower level xlib calls so any x application should be able to run at the same time as any other regardless of the library they use.

I know HTML, XHTML(not much difference), PHP, perl, assembly(at&t and intel syntax), C, C++, BASIC and QBASIC (remember gorillas?), bash scripting, java, Visual Basic(gag), and....thats all I can remember. I wont go into APIs, save that for another thread.

That sounds correct to me, programs written with gui toolkits and apis should run no matter the windowmanager/desktop.

Lets see, I know:

C, C++/QT GUI, Java/javascript/AWT/Swing GUI, Matlab (if you consider that a language), MIPS asm, Perl, Python, Kornshell, QBASIC hmm and a few others I can't quite remember
