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.

The topic itself is a provocation, there is no need for additional wars (of course I could state, for example, that every other program is written in Forth, only it wouldn't be true.)

Yes, my answer is still relevant

The most human programming language is obviously Intercal. It's probably the only language where PLEASE is a keyword. Can't get any more human than that.

Shouldn't that be ... "Alexa, make me a website secure from Amazon snooping" ?.

Maybe the gordian knot for the millennials

Most human readable or most similar to natural language?

I believe the former is not a property of a programming language, rather a skill of a programmer. I have read incomprehensible English (well, strings of English words). I've also read well written, easily understood Perl, which is often cited as a write only language.

One thing that is tricky is that I think anyone with programming experience, myself included, is going to have a lot of bias. From my own experience of seeing non-programmers learning to program, there is no doubt that they got on with Python very quickly. Of course, once you learn the syntax of any language, it becomes much the same. I do like Python as a way of showing non-programmers how easy it is - showing them C++, Java, they turn off very quickly. You have to bear in mind that some people do not want to know the ins and outs of writing software, but want to be able to code some logic to solve a problem - Python is that language - I even use it myself to perform simple tasks when I don't want to write an application. I made a fairly juicy RPG name generator and a Christmas present assigning script for my family and strange things like that - it is like a tool that quickly works and anyone can write it.

People seem to hate Python and I understand if you are a programmer, but it definitely has a place and I use it regularly, even though I know C++, Java, C#, PHP and a whole lot of other languages. I am no longer a programmer (professionally), so actually that has drawn me to Python which has a serious convenience factor - I can dabble and I am not interested anymore in writing applications (done that plenty in the past).
