Languages I like or use often[edit]

  • C : Advanced assembler, but much to verbose if used properly
  • awk : Versatile for many small problems
  • Python : Best behind the language that I designed myself
  • Bourne shell : Has its quirks

Languages I have used extensively in former days[edit]

  • C++ : Has its use fields, but rather complicated and verbose if not used daily
  • FORTRAN IV : First language after ALGOL60
  • ALGOL 60 : My first one
  • 360 Assembly : Good with macros; a bit tricky sometimes
  • Pascal : Broadly available
  • Prolog : Could not exploit its promises
  • COBOL : Verbose, but very good for commercial programming

Languages I try to avoid[edit]

  • Perl : Much to tricky
  • APL : Only if daily used
  • Prolog : Did not hold its promises
