"History of Computer Languages" wall chart - RF Cafe Forums

Because of the high maintenance needed to monitor and filter spammers from the RF Cafe Forums, I decided that it would be best to just archive the pages to make all the good information posted in the past available for review. It is unfortunate that the scumbags of the world ruin an otherwise useful venue for people wanting to exchanged useful ideas and views. It seems that the more formal social media like Facebook pretty much dominate this kind of venue anymore anyway, so if you would like to post something on RF Cafe's Facebook page, please do.

Below are all of the forum threads, including all the responses to the original posts.

Greetings:

I ran across this interesting wall chart entitled "History of Programming Languages." It is available for free as a download in PDF format. It runs from 1954 through 2004.

Pascal, for instance, which is the language that RF Workbench was written in, was born in 1985.

"C" began life as CPL in 1963, then transmogrified to BCPL (1967), then actually to "B" in 1969, then to "C" in 1971. The infamous K&R version hatched in 1978.

FORTRAN is the first programming language on the chart, having begun in November of 1954.

Enjoy.
