Programming This forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Post How many programming languages do you know?

I'm curious at how many of the users here at LQ are programmers, and what the average level of skill is. Not Linux-related per-se, but I still think it would be cool poll.

Note: This should have been posted under General and not Linux-General. Just for your own future reference. As it doesn't really have anything to do with Linux.

I program in far too many languages (Yes I know brainf*** and INTERCAL -- although don't expect me to do anything useful with them). I have programmed for a very long time and one of the things that really appealed to me about *nix was the access to the various compilers that I wanted to use. Did someone say free compiler?

I ran into brainf*** a few years ago I think. It was a rather funny day.

I haven't been programming that long, since I'm not all that old. Though, I've worked with about 6 or 7 different languages/environments.
