Sixth Generation Programming Languages

1

So earlier this year we were doing a class intro and my professor mentioned something about a 6th generation programming language?

Are there any such projects yet or was my prof just throwing it out there?

Also semi-related. You know the new language D? What does it qualify as?

Please don't return me to Google. It doesn't return any relevant results.

Thanks!

vvvv is Sixth generation
LabVIEW is fifth generation
PureBasic is Fourth generation
C is Third generation
FASM is second generation
Writing HEX Codes into object files - First generation.
Plugboards,Microcode,FPGA programming,raw switches, Verilog - Zeroth generation.

9

>>8
Fifth suppose to be Prolog, But in actuality its just a third/fourth generation trying to be "user-friendly" and "AI-generating".
Like LISP(a third generation language), FORTRAN(Same third generation) they all try to enforce one paradigm and view of how people should code. The next generation embraces multiparadigmality and DSL creation(C++/PureBASIC/Java).
Suffice to say all those High-abstraction languages which belong to third generation are useless in practice while practical, more free-form fourth generation stole their userbase.
Thats why LISP is less popular than say PureBasic. PureBasic is primitive and less abstracted, but its much faster and has all the practical tools/functions for quick program creation, it does not impede programmer productivity at all or enforce some academic purity or standard.

10

>>9
Fourth generation languages are DSLs themselves. The languages used to implement the DSLs are third generation languages.

11

>>10
The languages were used to write a seperate language(Assembly written to implement COBOL does not make COBOL more assembly-based).
A subset of customized LISP functions is not a DSL but a LISP-based dialect.

But Scheme is not a real programming language!

24

Why all the trolling?

The OP's question are legit.

And the easiest programming language (as far as I know) is LOGO which if I recall correctly we had to learn in fifth grade for the Mathematics class.

25

>>24
If LOGO is so easy, why aren't there any web browsers written in it?

26

>>25
It probably becomes hard to write large-scale things in it. There are easy languages for toy programs, and there are languages which are also easy when scaled, but some languages scale badly.

27

>>25
Because Logo is a Lisp, and therefore it doesn't have any libraries.

28

>>27
1/10 at claiming Lisp doesn't have libraries:
First, I managed to find libraries for just about anything I wanted to do (some libraries are well-maintained, while others required some maintencance from my side, usually minor fixes).
Second, there are web browsers written in Lisp, here's an example: http://common-lisp.net/project/closure/

29

Lispers: so insecure they take the bait every time.

30

>>28
No JavasScript, no XHTML, no HTML5, no SVG... Not a real web browser.

31

>>30
Javascript would likely be easy to add. As for XHTML/HTML5, I don't see how those are unsupported in it. The web browser is way above text web browsers, or are you going to claim those are not web browsers too? Myself, I have Javascript turned off completly for security reasons and only use it when I need it. I couldn't care less about those that want to make the web a client-side application platform, that's not what it was meant to be. I'll be enjoying my thick client applications, thank you!

32

Javascript turned off completly for security reasons
back to stormfront.org, please.

33

>I couldn't care less about those that want to make the web a client-side application platform
The web3.0 revolution is all about client-side application platforms.

34

>>31
Myself, I have Javascript turned off completly for security reasons
There are a lot of websites where turning off Javascript is actually harmful to security.

35

Lisp is dead. It turns out that, starting from a set of constraints defining a particular problem, deriving an efficient algorithm to solve it is a very difficult problem in itself. This crucial step cannot yet be automated and still requires the insight of a human programmer.

36

Lisp is dead. Long live lisp!

37

>>35
I don't see how the car is relevant to the [/m]cdr[/m] of your post. Maybe it's connected by me being trolled

38

>>35 Appears to be making a silly argument saying that just because an EXPERT PROGRAMMER is needed, the tools he uses shouldn't be aimed at making his life easier. He must a RealProgrammer™.
