The Language List

Collected Information On About 2500 Computer Languages, Past and Present.

Maintained by Bill Kinnersley

Welcome to The Language List! Early versions of this list were posted to comp.lang.misc beginning in 1991. Now a web site, our intention remains the same -- to become one of the most complete sources of information on computer programming languages ever assembled (or compiled :-).

The list does not pretend to be a definitive scholarly work. Its purpose is to collect and provide timely information in a rapidly growing field. Its accuracy and completeness depend to a great extent on the users of the Internet. If you know about a language that should be added, please share your knowledge.
