Apparently I haven't voted in this yet.

So now I have. I would've voted C# twice, but it won't let me.

I discussed the absence of Pascal in this comment.

Actually, I'm interested in seeing whether Python drops a bit and Lua picks up more votes, assuming LuaJIT remains the Architectural Solution of Choice.

Hello fellow Swiss citizen! :wave:

It somehow was so clear, that two Swiss citizens defend pascal. :ghost:

Edit: And I think there's a reason why the ST of IEC-61131-3 is based on pascal. ;)

Well, being young is a problem that goes away with age :)

Yeah, that's the concept of getting older. ^^

In a world where everything is an array, there is one language to rule them all. FORTRAN. :P

It used to be I could always tell who had gotten a degree as an engineer of some kind (usually electrical but sometimes mechanical).

If their engineering had any connection to computers, they learned FORTRAN. After that, the only data structure they used in any code they ever wrote -- which computer science geeks like me had to figure out and maintain -- was the array.

Sometimes they would invent a complicated version of linked lists on their own that directly used arrays. Lots of arrays. Pointing to other arrays. Which weren't commented, because the code was obvious.

:x

I have no idea what programming language engineers are taught these days. Whatever it is, I'll bet they still aren't required to take a Data Structures class.
