in reply to Perl is sinking (TIOBE): all time low for Perl
Google shows that C# is way above PHP, Python, Perl, Ruby yet TIOBE doesn't?
Look at what the TIOBE ranking is based on: The ratings are calculated by counting hits of the most popular search engines. The search query that is used is +"<language> programming"
This is a totally obviously WRONG methodology. Effectively TIOBE is slandering just about every language they rank.
Do not trust TIOBE, it is wrong and it even disagrees 100% with the results that GOOGLE has once the category of programming has been selected.
TIOBE is bad methodology FOR ALL LANGUAGES.
