Yes I know. I saw the vote button. What I mean is, to restrict reply posts such as this one and the rest. All we can only do is just click the vote button. This will prevent things like "why my fav language is not in" or "I disagree with this language .." or "this language is better than that..." such comments. Also the poll should include all possible languages, therefore we eliminate the element of bias.

PASCAL, of course

Only one assignment operator! That really helps an old man like me remember stuff. My programmes also work with the next release of the compiler! If Linus would switch the kernel to Pascal, I could contribute more...

I use C++ and Qt for GUI. In 2008 I will try to learn Python or Ruby and maybe even Open. I'll see how much free time I get.

Basic should be in this list. It is as much of a langauge as Java. I like Basic because of the Gambas editor.

[Common] Lisp!

Actually, I have to point out a small thing here: Lisp is no longer in existence - there's Scheme (which tries to stay as "pure" to the original Lisp as possible), Common Lisp (which follows a standard, but isn't as "pure" as Scheme - "pure" meaning "lean/small codebase"), and newLISP (which is some weird hybrid of Lisp and...something else).


languages, lua
