in thread Ancient Philosophy And Programming Languages

This is an extremely good question. I had not given any thought to how they would distinguish between the different types of programming language. I tried to come up with a quick answer but I do not have one. I am going to think about this and try to write a follow-up node on this thread. I just wanted to get back to you so that you knew that I was not ignoring you. Thanks for this excellent question and I am sorry that I could not come up with anything right away.

    No rush. Philosophers didn't have all the answers right away either; they spent their time finding them.

    As a starting point for you (and other readers), I direct you to WikiPedia's entry on programming paradigms, which lists, among others: structured, imperative, procedural, functional, object-oriented, and event-driven.
