Best Language For Experimental GUI Demo Projects?

TedC Re:GNUstep (278 comments)

Qt "by hand" isn't perfect, but it's better than Cocoa.

I was hopeful that www.tiobe.com would do a "Programming Community Index for April 1, 2008" page, but it didn't happen.

Something like this:

1. Rebol
2. Eiffel
3. Dylan
4. Caml
5. Objective-C
6. Forth
7. ML
8. Haskell
9. Smalltalk ...

51. Cobol
52. RPG ...

101. Visual Basic

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
