what languages do you use?


I'm curious to know what languages you all prefer to use for your daily/weekly coding grindage and for what reasons.

C: Personal
Perl: Work/Personal
Bash-Shell: Work/Personal

I've dabbled in C++, Java, and Python, but couldn't ever really sink my teeth into any of them, though I did spend a bit more time with Java.

Anyone else?

I've dabbled in C/C++, Java, shell, PHP, javascript, and what I think was some BASIC in a maths lesson once. My biggest works have been in Python, though I was top of the class at machine code for some emulated 8086 processor iirc.

I've used some apparent C derivative for basic games animation, and will probably have to learn Java for uni if I go to Warwick. The rest is personal messing.

I've mostly been using C/C++ and Perl lately because of college, but i've been working on personal projects using those languages as well.

I've also started learning LISP for purely idiosyncratic reasons

(= About 6 months ago, I decided to learn to read/write/speak a foreign language, and decided on Russian for that very reason. (there is not much use or call for the russian language in my area, since I can't even rent movies in russian... spanish, now that is a different story, since the hispanic population is quite large)
