I: Introduction

This paper will discuss the many different programming languages available. There are many different languages of which the new ones are being created every day.

The first language of which I am going to talk about is C++. It is an imperative language which is based on the C language. It was designed to make it easier for programmers to remember how to program in C, but it also has many differences. These differences include more strong typing and better support for object oriented programming. C++ is widely used in programming, including game programming. It has been around since 1983.

Java is also an imperative language that was created in 1995. It was designed to be platform independent which means that it could be used on multiple operating systems. It’s type checking system is very strict in order to prevent any type of error in the code. Java is used by many different companies for side projects.

C# is another language that is made by Microsoft. It was created in 2000 and it is very similar to Java in its structure and syntax, but it is multi-paradigm. This means that it can be used in almost any problem. It has several new features that Java does not have, such as delegates and events.

All three of these languages are imperative languages, but there are other types of languages that you can use. One of which is declarative languages, these do not tell the computer how to do something; instead you give it a set of rules and it decides what needs to be done. The most popular of which is Prolog (Programming in Logic). It is used for artificial intelligence programming. Python is another declarative language that was created in 1991. Python is a general purpose, high level language that is very easy to read and write. It has been around since 1991 and it is used by many different companies for various projects.

Another type of language that you can use is functional programming language. These languages are based on mathematical functions and they do not have any side effects so, they can easily be evaluated before execution. The two most popular functional programming languages are Haskell and Lisp (the second oldest programming language after FORTRAN).

There are many other types of programming languages, both for business applications and games, but these are the most commonly used ones. I hope you enjoyed this introduction to programming languages.
