Other Programming Languages

ActionScript

Object-oriented programming language. It is a derivation of HyperTalk, the scripting language for HyperCard. It is a dialect of ECMAScript, and is used primarily for the development of websites and software targeting the Adobe Flash Player platform, used on Web pages in the form of embedded SWF files.

Ada

Modern programming language designed for large, long-lived applications – and embedded systems in particular – where reliability and efficiency are essential. Ada improves code safety and maintainability by using the compiler to find errors in favor of runtime errors.

Assembly language

Low-level programming language for a computer, or other programmable device, that takes basic computer instructions and converts them into a pattern of bits that the computer's processor can use to perform its basic operations.

CCL

Stands for Cerner Command Language. It is the Cerner Corporation fourth-generation programming language, which is expressed in the Cerner Discern Explorer solution. 

COBOL

One of the earliest high-level programming languages. COBOL is run on the mainframe as well as on the PC. Referred to as a legacy language, which means it is in a format that is no longer used or supported by new systems.

CoffeeScript

A language that compiles into JavaScript. You can use any existing JavaScript library seamlessly from CoffeeScript (and vice-versa). The compiled output is readable and pretty-printed, will work in every JavaScript runtime, and tends to run as fast or faster than the equivalent handwritten JavaScript.

Dart

General-purpose programming language originally developed by Google and later approved as a standard by Ecma (ECMA-408). It is used to build web, server and mobile applications, and for Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

Delphi

High level language supporting object-oriented design. It is a rapid application development used to develop applications ranging from database solutions to mobile applications and is used on Windows as well as Linux.

Hack

A programming language for the HipHop Virtual Machine, created as a dialect of PHP, it includes new language features such as an extremely robust static type checking system, improved lambda support, native collections, etc.

Haxe

A cross-platform high-level programming language, compiler and library toolkit. It is not a framework, rather a tool for creating frameworks and other tools in mobile, web and game development. The Haxe programming language is similar to Java, PHP and C++, and the library includes a set of common APIs for cross-platform behavior.

Lua

A dynamic scripting language, it is lightweight, multi-paradigm and cross-platform, designed primarily for embedded systems and clients, is easy to add to an existing C or C++ application.

Maple

A multi-paradigm programming language used for representing and interpreting mathematical expressions and their display in web pages, allows to create custom UI, supports numeric/symbolic computation and visualization, also has interfaces to other languages.

Perl

Practical Extraction and Report Language is a general-purpose, interpreted, dynamic programming languages designed for text processing, used for system administration, web development, network programming, GUI development, and more.

R language

A programming language and software environment, commonly used for statistical computing within data heavy roles such as data mining, statistics and working with graphics. The language was created as a language similar to S.

RPG

Report Program Generator is a high-level programming language (HLL) for business applications. RPG is an IBM proprietary language and its later versions are only available on IBM or OS/400 based systems.

VBScript

Stands for Visual Basic Script, a general-purpose, lightweight and active scripting language developed by Microsoft, has a very simple syntax, is the primary scripting language for Quick Test Professional (QTP). 

Xtend

A general-purpose high-level programming language for the JVM, an expressive dialect of Java that focuses on a concise syntax and additional functionality such as type inference, extension methods, and operator overloading.
