    A bit like describing my favourite hammer - depends on the job. ๐Ÿ™‚

    But if the whole world went for Swift, I wouldn't mind too much.

    (Still love PHP for traditional web stuff though.)

    Perhaps, that is my problem. I love the tools more than the job.

    I really hate Visual Basic.

    C. Not C++, not C-flat, just plain C. And failing that, good old Sinclair Basic.

    What I don't hold with is proprietary languages owned by multinationals like Google, Microsoft or Apple. Can't trust 'em. Ones designed by a government committee - or, shudder and wince, the military - are, of course, out of the question.

    I have a feeling I'd like Lua if I allowed myself the leisure to get into it. And I did like Prolog in principle, but never found a real-world use for it.

    C++ sucked. It was a great example of how *not* to do an object-oriented language.

    But, bless the creator for it, anyway...so that future OO languages could get better...

    I've recently designed a restful API using C# which I found to be a joy!

    Must be very sharp! Since I am involved with semiconductor manufacturing machines, I'll stick with Fortran. Great for that, not very good to make a chess program though๐Ÿ˜‰

    Perl was what I used most often, but now I don't script any more, so have not written any code in some time.
