All you assembly lovers please post here too if you want the best language to
be called the best, and not just any language getting declared as being the
best.

Define 'best'

I'm not interested in doing HTML animations with assembly or Pascal. I'm not interested in doing string manipulation in FORTRAN or COBOL. I'm not interested in ... in ...

Each language has its strengths. If I need a highly optimized function, sure I'll write it in in assembly instead of Ruby. Sure if I need to parse an HTML document and pull out specific data I'll use Perl instead of COBOL. Sure if I need to do HTML animations I'll use JavaScript instead of Pascal.

This is why all these languages exist. If there was one 'best' language, there would be far fewer competitors.

I'm boycotting this poll.

exactly as mattst88 said: there simply is no "best language". Every language has it pros and cons, and you should ideally learn as most as possible, and pick one that suits you best.

I wouldn't write complex math equations in python, just like i wouldn't use assembly for some GUI application that just translates user inputs to database queries.

Sure!

You guys use different kinds of spoons for different kind of foods.
You guys use different kinds of glasses for different kind of drinks.
You guys use different kinds of vehicles for different kind of journeys.


I prefer to use hands and feet.

There are specific needs for all languages yeah!
But best?

one man asked left-hand man (do not know exact english word):
- how left-hand men differ from right-hand ones?
- ok, let's explain in example... say, after you did some, which hand you use to clean your ass?
- right, of course!
- but i do use paper instead...

Unicon? Euphoria? XPL0? ANSI Forth? FreeBASIC? FreePascal? Ada 95? Fortran 95? Lua? Emacs Lisp? C--? D?

Some bloated, some lean, some interpreted, some compiled, some both interpreted and / or compiled, some old, some new ....

A better poll would've been "Best non-C-based, non-asm Linux compiler" (or Win32 or DOS or ...) or even "Best scripting language". As is, it's too wide open for every little niche.

Oh, and don't forget Brainf***! Razz Laughing
