For my Unix stuff, I use C, borne shell, and perl. For Windows, I use AutoIT and VBScript. For stuff that runs on a microcontroller or a digital signal processor, I use either C or assembler depending on what I am trying to do. I couldn't beleive how many programing languages are out there. There was WAY too many to list on the poll. I know of Cobol, Forth, Fortran, Lisp, Logo, Ada to name a few.

Ahhh, now *that* takes me back! I used to make mIRC do some really neat stuff back in the day. Surprisingly capable program, even if didn't scale well...but it wasn't meant to :)

<snipped; no interest>

A little experience in Basic, VB Scripts, DOS Batch, smattering of Assembler, HP COBOL (one of first Client-Server-oriented).

Assembler, however, is my favorite.

C

AutoHotKey (voted AutoIt because they are very similar and in fact AHK is a fork of AutoItv2)

HTML

Unix shell, batch files

And my favourite: OCaml/Objective-Caml.

I need to say why this language is my favourite : developping is fast, code is portable, programs are robust (static types *automatically* determined at compile time which lets you have complicated types) and fast (~1.2*C_time), functionnal programming (List.iter (Printf.printf "%s\n") my_list;; are really nice things), language is powerful and expressive though cryptic for the beginner.

Problems ? None with the language, some with the libraries which are sometimes lacking (*sometimes*, you usually have everything you need).

I know this isn't about comparing computer languages but I needed to make some advertisement for this one which is not known enough. :)

I started with some Basic and Assembly ages ago, writing my own slot machine. Once we had a 286, I wrote hundreds of Batch-files. Ah, the memories! ;) From there on I learned some Perl and Visual Basic. Around the same time I learned HTML, CSS, JavaScript, VBScript and later ASP. And of all this, I believe that I use my Batch and HTML knowledge most ;)
