So I have an extra credit paper due in programming class on a programming language of my choice. I was wondering if anybody had any suggestions (outside of C, C++, Java) on other interesting languages that had enough information available for 5-9 pages.
Here are some of the criteria for the paper if this helps:
• History of the language/related languages
• Design goals/why was the language created
• Properties/Characteristics/ maybe one or two short examples
Not asking for any specific help, just asking for suggestions on what some would think a good language would be to cover these topics well. I assume there are some languages that would take a lot more effort to get 5-9 pages out of, so I'd kind of like one that is challenging/interesting, but also one that I don't have to scour the four corners of the Earth to find information about.
