Evolution of programming language
I hope I can tell you about the evolution of programming langguate, but it's just too complicated.
How many programming language you know?
I think most of us know about C/C++, some maybe VB or VC.
And I'm a Delphi programmer.
Just because I like Turbo Pascal so much and Borland really did a greate job on its product. Although Borland had decided to sell off his programming language production line, but for me, I will still continue using it until this product obsolete. I hope the buyer of Delphi will continue the spirit of Delphi.
