Though I'll give a more detailed analysis in my next article, I just did a quick count of the last ten codegolf games. Ruby and Perl always finished first and second in code length: Perl won 6 times, Ruby 4 times. As for the longest solutions, it was: PHP 7 times, Python 3 times. That agrees with my impression when playing these games: Perl and Ruby are (often quite excitingly) vieing for the Silver Cup, while Python and PHP are battling for the wooden spoon. What surprised me enormously is popularity, measured by number of entries: Python 5, Ruby 4, Perl 1. It seems that golf is more popular in Python than Perl nowadays. That shocked me, because four years ago the top google hit for "Python golf" was a lovely pair of Python skin ladies golf shoes. :)
