The underlying fact here probably is that most programmers are at best mediocre and such programmers tend on intuitive level to avoid more complex, more rich languages and prefer, say, Pascal to PL/1 and PHP to Perl.
Or at least avoid it on a particular phase of language development (C is not simpler language then PL/1, but was widely adopted because of the progress of hardware, availability of compilers ).
The latter includes libraries, IDE, books, level of adoption at universities, popular, important applications written in the language, level of support and key players that support the language on major platforms such as Windows and Linux and other similar things.
A mediocre language with good programming environment can give a run for the money to similar superior in design languages that are just naked. Critical application is also very important and this is a story of success of PHP which is nothing but a bastardatized derivative of Perl (with all the most interesting Perl features surgically removed ;-) adapted to creation of dynamic web sites using so called LAMP stack.
The second interesting category is number of applications written in parcilar language that became part of Linux or, at least, are including in standard RHEL/FEDORA/CENTOS or Debian/Ubuntu repository.
The third relevant category is the number and quality of books for the particular language.
What Peter Naur failed to understand was that design of programming languages has religious overtones and sometimes represent an activity, which is pretty close to the process of creating a new, obscure cult ;-).
Clueless academics publishing junk papers at obscure conferences are high priests of the church of programming languages. Dijkstra, (temporary) reached the status close to (false) prophets :-).
ADA was progressive in this respect, but unfortunately it is in the process of collapsing under its own great weight.
ADA is an example of what can happen when an official attempt is made to orchestrate technical advances.
Traditional high level languages field is stagnant for many decades.Tags: Adult Dating, affair dating, sex dating
