Ranking of Retro-programming languages

  1. Oct 6, 2014 #1
    Greetings,
    All right, I think the title says it all, yet to elaborate things a bit:
    This thread ranks the best Programming languages(yes this is of course subjectiv!) of the 60s-80s and early 90s.

    Boy, what a surprise! A book on Forth rating Forth as the best language. The best, Jerry, the best.

    Wow we've come a long way! How is C and Perl not on this list?

    I've also never heard of a programming language called LOGIC, and I can't find any reference to one by that name.

    That is because I miswrote myself. I meant LOGO.

    What thread? It looks like the link to the thread might have been edited out afterwards.

    Posts #2, #4 and #5 seem to be commenting on something outside this thread. What?

    What no mention of COBOL?,... j/k.

    Yes, C and C++, obviously.

    They're commenting on a list of languages that the OP deleted from Post #1, along with a reference to an unnamed book about FORTH that the list came from.

    Since the OP has now turned this thread into garbage, I'm going to lock it.
