    Comparing Different languages in code.


    Hi,

    after giving input on a different thread I thought I'd throw a quick new one together with a couple of links people may/may not know exist.

    The first is 99 Bottle of beer on the wall site. This basically is the song 99 bottles of beer on a wall, written in code in 959 languages .

    The second is the Great Win32 Computer Language shootout. It takes a group of 25 coding benchmarks and compares 51 languages with each shootout. Very nerdy, but very interesting.

    Heres another Computer Language Shootout. This is based on the original which died in 2001(or there abouts) from lack of support.

    Well hope you enjoy the links and maybe find something useful.

    there is an interesting project underway at the CTM wiki to translate the examples from this and other classic textbooks into other languages - CTM and SICP for starters
