What programming languages do you know?

And, any other kind of stuff you know? I threw in everything I could think of.

my favorite is C, and i also voted for html (does that even count?) and other.... because you forgot to put assembly in there! ... c/assembly are my favorite programing languages ... tried java, c++, python and perl ... never understood any of those "easy" object something languages ... to confusing

I'm functionally illiterate in Java and Perl. Of course if you take away my O'Reilly books, I'm probably fully illiterate in both.

Fairly confident in:

C, C++, VB, Java (only client-side, not JSP), PHP.

HTML, CSS, a bit of XML, LaTeX.

Does the good old BASIC still count to programming languages?
Besides, I also know some HTML ...

I know some PHP, Turbo Pascal, HTML+CSS. We've learned at school also C and C++, Java and assembly but I don't like them, so I know only basic things .. and really nothing in assembly.
But I want to start learning Java and C for myself.

I'm fairly fluent with Java and I know some basic concepts of C++. I also know HTML and Javascript but they're not programming languages.

I'm trying to improve my skills in C++, Java and PHP as of now.
