Hi,

This isn't to start a holy war. We've already got a chunk of the world that's doing more than enough of that. This is just out of interest. :-)

Poll this week was "How many languages do you know?"...anyone here someone who voted 12+? I sure wasn't...I know (where the nearer they are to the top of the list, the better I know them...roughly):-

Perl
C
Visual Basic
JAVA (but I'm not massively familiar with the standard library)
ML (again, don't know much of its standard library)
SQL (I know how to do all the normal stuff...)

I've played with and, with a book, could probably get by in:-
C#.NET
PHP
C++
JavaScript (I really, really hate this language)
QBasic (used to know this really well, but haven't used it for years)

I don't think HTML counts as a language, but I know some of that too. I have a basic knowledge of x86 Assembly and the concepts of assembly languages in general...this is something I want to brush up on.

Jonathan

    PL/SQL (Oracle's internal language)

    HTML/XML/XSLT

    Languages I have tinkered with enough to get by:
    C/C++
    VB.NET
    Java

    Languages I have read about that seem interesting for one reason or another:
    LISP

    Perl
    Ruby

    I have meesed with a lot over the years, but VB and C++ is all I need. I do like functional languages like caml and clean though.

    when i was a self taught little kid:
    msx basic (later kun basic, on the fly compiler @ 3.54mhz) and for some time z80 asm.

    school:
    vb6. quickly learned to dislike it.

    some time later:
    php: i took my quite a while to learn about everything that comes with extensive php coding. and i still learn new stuff, php or related such as js, servers, http etc. ah well, we also had many classes about networking and stuff. even got a couple of ccna certificates :D

    this year
    lots of c programming. its nice and quite flexible. but not really the language to code really big projects with (since it lacks oop).

    never did c++ (a shame!), but now im going to learn delphi and java together.

    BTW:
    are you mister sql?? then please....

    I'm not familiar with MySQL. On SQL Server,Oracle or Access I would try next
    [code]
    SELECT visits.visitorID,os.name from visits IINER JOIN os ON visits.id = os.id
    WHERE visits.userID=''
    [/code]

    Over the years I've learned the following languages well enough to what I want:
    Pascal
    VB.NET
    C#
    VB 6
    Delphi
    Java

    Non Languages:
    HTML
    XML
    SQL (what I needed for VB.NET and VB 6 to use access DB)

    Languages that I can look at and have an understanding of what goes on.
    C/C++ (Played around with it quite a bit, but never made any real programs with it. Therefore, I can't put it in the former category)
    Assembler (to a small extent.)

    well, now i feel stupid. you all know like 10+ languages. I know only 3(VB, java, scheme) and thats it! I know very little C++ but that is only cuase I know java. there I said it!


    (this is just a joke but I really do now only 3 languages.)

    Hmmm...I haven't come accross Scheme (heard of it, but never used it). It is a functional language (e.g. like ML or Haskell)?

    : (this is just a joke but I really do now only 3 languages.)
    : *sighs*
    :
    Ah, but if you know those three languages well, then that's a good thing. I couldn't claim to know all the languages I listed inside out. The only ones I'd say I do know really well are Perl, JAVA, C and (possibly) VB, but lack of use of VB means I've forgotten bits of it here and there.

    yes, scheme is a functional language, quite impressive on how many calculations it can do. it however is wierd like instead of saying x=2+5, you say (= x (+ 25)). wierd isn't it?
