re: Is there such thing as a bad programming language? VIEW POST


Well, you always have the "joke" programming languages, like Brainf@#$, Chef, etc. Are these languages "bad"?

I figure a language is "good" if it fulfills its intent, and does it well. So is Chef a bad programming language? It might be bad for practical use, but it expertly fulfills its intended niche (making programs that look like recipes).

I know that's a very broad definition, and there's probably nuances inside of it, but that's how I'd define a "bad programming language."
