Nice timeline. And downloadable.
The links list is interesting too. Of them http://hopl.murdoch.edu.au/ seems quiet comprehensive and with a novel approach.
Very cool, very complex :)
Yeah. The timeline itself becomes interesting for a snoop look at how languages evolved. It's interesting to spot things like C# borrowing some elements of Borland's Delphi, showing Algol extreme importance as one of the backbones of computer programming, or curiosities like Lisp very self-contained path despite being the second oldest language still in existence.
The HOPL website (the other link) makes for a more informative reading on a novel approach. Not sure if it works though. But does provide some info on some languages that is not present in the wiki.
I've added Clipper to the PDF version (attached bellow) of the timeline in case anyone is interested. Which you probably aren't :D
I'm just not positively sure if the C elements of Clipper were introduced right on the onset of Winter'84 or with the more widely regarded Summer'87.
This brings me to whole new levels of yawn. J/k.
You are just proving my friends point. I need a life.
naa, I just hate being reminded how I'm too young and "missed" those cool revolutionary languages like Ada and Fortran and Lego Mindstorm. Having a professor that practically "grew up" programming in most of them doesn't help either
