Which programming language do you like most?

And why?

Hi Noel,
XBLite of course. Because I can experiment all my heart's contents and I can browse the library sources for code snippets.
During the last 2 years, I heavily coded in Java for an DP ingeneer diploma.
From 1979 to 2002, I've been coding in COBOL, which is still my favorite language.
I heavily coded in C from 1989 to 2000 and I enjoyed it.
BTW, I'm working on XBLite's UTF-16 support so try to see if you want to port your GUI apps to Unicode.
Bye! Guy

I like BASIC, but no real preference to which version.
BASIC allows me to do quick file changes without a lot
of coding.
I often need to do things like, Grab all the words in a file, sort them alphabetically,
then list each word only once. (This generates the vocabulary of a a text.) Or similar
things like converting a text list to HTML tables.

I am now exploring xblite because I need more speed for the complex problems.
One of my efforts took over three months of computing time (running WIN2000 at 2.5 ghz).

I have a "TEST model running that should be done in four/five days right now.

Ah, to dream of the day I could just "throw money at the project" instead of learning
other languages.

I know Pascal, various BASICs, Javascript, Java, and I remember COBOL and ForTran.
I used to know C.

Xbasic. Yeah, I know it's old fashioned but honestly I have had years of fun with it and managed to do so much more than I originally thought possible. XBLite has always been a bit on the difficult side and the only times I use it is when I need to do something small for a windows user. (I personally use only Linux Mint). Have never gone into the really deeper side of XBL, which is a pity. I can code in Python, javascript, HTML and CSS as well as QuickBasic and VB6, my first languages learned. Oh yes... not that young anymore... but young at heart!
