in reply to Programing languages as wines

  • C - dry, full-bodied, woody
  • C++ - big, complex, earthy
  • Java - fat, crisp, chewy
  • Lisp - fine, vigorous, smoky
  • AWK - ripe, honest, foxy
My thanks to this handy wine glossary.

    I always figured Perl more of a 'White Cider'.
    Cheap, effective, and with a taste not unlike champagne!

    Let's try a couple more

    • Ruby - light, sweet, fruity
    • C# - fat, crisp, chewy (Bizarre. Doesn't this sound like ...) but with bad finish
    • Python - full-bodied, simple, but a bit honest
    • PHP - Mad Dog 20/20 ('nuff said)

    X86 assembly - - - - simple, astringent, austere, prone to being moldy
    BASIC - - - - - - - Nutty, with some Off-Flavors
    Visual Basic - - - - Nutty, thick, with a bitter aftertaste
    SQL - - - - - - - - Dull, buttery
