I am wondering what is the most used language by all people at gamedev.net? I am using C++. Just trying to get an idea what ratio of people are using C vs C++ and then compare that to other languages e.g. Java, VB, Pascal. Thanks all.

I use Delphi 4 with JEDI DirectX 8.1 units.

I use C++.
Not because I think it''s better (I don''t think it is), but because I am better at it because I know it more and I like it very much. I could pretty much achieve the same thing with other languages, but I wouldn''t be as happy as am I using C++.

Java was my first real language, I love it and use it constantly to this day. C++, of course, is wonderful as well. I also like Python a lot.

Pick a mainstream language and I probably use it at least once a month.

For most of my personal stuff I used Delphi 5 Pro, its an excellent IDE and RAD environment, and has extremely clean syntax.

E-mail Gaiiden (Drew Sikora) and suggest this as a poll. You''ll get a more complete picture of GameDev members'' programming language choices with a front-page poll than a thread in General Programming can provide. Besides, he''s looking for poll topics.

I''d suggest breaking into categories:
Compiled multi-paradigm/OO (C++)
Compiled/interpreted OO (Java, Ruby, etc)
Compiled procedural
Interpreted procedural
Other (graphical, etc)

I mostly use C++, but dabble in a host of other languages for a variety of programming tasks. No, I don''t make games.
