I think Rust is the way foreward for a lot of applications that are currently written in C. Python still has a warm place in my heart because you can get things up and running really quickly. The best scripting language has to be Perl. Java and Javascript are becoming a little obsolete, but there are big markets for them in development for the forseeable future.

I am liking Rust, NIM, V-lang, and interpreted PERL and Bash.

I learnt FORTRAN IV 52 years ago - is this a record?

It's got a lot more sophisticated since then.

You certainly can do nifty CPU specific things with gcc's inline assembly. Not to mention looking at disassembly listing results in a few WTF, Wow! and Aha! moments.

Or just skip the GCC part completely.

Sure you can, we all can. The only question is can you read it once you have written it? ;-) (Just a friendly leg pull.)

Let me just say that my absolute least favorite language is Make. As soon as you get past the subset that can be easily replaced with a markup language, it's just, uh....

You haven't met CMake have you? It takes all the dark patterns of Make and adds (darker) magic.

CMake is fine. It just has bad documentation.

I'd count it as one. I once worked with a group that was using a batch execution environment that included bells and whistles like being able to restart jobs at failure points... all written in bash.

It would get my vote for LotY, though. I guess I'd have to go with Python despite its warts.
