ActionScript is not a programming language.
It's a headache.
Actionscript 2 mother fuckers.
Shit is so cash.
It's useful if you dont have a c compiler for your micro maybe.
Not nearly enough love for Python
Hey man, I work with climate scientists... they love it(Fortran) and still use it daily... although they probably were born in the 50s, so you comment is most likely valid
Nothing more fun than making sure the Fortran compiler is up to date... not
You poor bastard
Oh this is a hard one. I'm about equal at C, C++ and Delphi/Pascal. Picked Delphi because I've spent more time making money off it.
<3 to the ASM guys too, I want to learn more but most stuff I do these days is too much of a headache to do in anything but C
i put C++ but i think im probably mroe C... Its all blurry really there. He in 6 months it will be java cause uwa forces that down your throat so bad.
ASM is powerful. Useful for micro's, but in all seriousness if you have a C compiler it's better.
C on micro's is just as powerful as asm. I just like the C cause it's a hellova lot more readable when you have a lot of complex stuff going on.
Only time I would use asm over c is when writing something very timing critical, eg a ISR for I2C or implementing a protocol via software. Even then you can I only put snippets of ASM or 1 single asm module in my project.
Used to be extremely proficient at C/C++ but stopped daily programming in it a while ago. Have been programming tools and GUI apps Python at work for the last few years and would say I'm approaching guru status.
You also missed matlab from the list! I'm sure for many people in academia this would be a primary language.
I wish I could say I was most proficient in Lisp, cause I love that language but its so hard to get used to. I'm a C/C++/Python guy.
Used to be pretty good in C++ but no longer do it. I'm looking to teach myself php.
Delphi here.. back when i actually did a lot of code
if i was still programming i probably would of migrated to C# as before that nothing seemed to look "clean" enough OOP for me
Ruby... I hear plenty about that but dont even know what it is. I notice some features in netbeans for it.
