Quoting Ondrej Certik <address@hidden>:

By the way, how do you measure popularity?  By numbers published a
couple of years ago, there would be about 9 millions programmers
on the planet, out of which 3 millions are claimed to be C++

Right, C/C++ is probably the most popular. But it's quite low level,
we are interested in something higher level, thus we need to look
among Python, Ruby, C#, Aldor etc. You can measure the popularity by
anything of these: number of endusers, number of developers, number of
compilers/interpreters, number of jobs offerings (demaning a knowledge
of the particular language),......

I'm sorry to say but in my experience, I don't see Python, Ruby, C#
being higher level than C++.  The thing that distinguishes Aldor
from C++ is dependent types.  Apart from that, I don't see much difference
that would make me qualify Aldor as higher level than C++.

Notice that I'm specifically talking of C++, not an imaginary C/C++.
