in reply to Perl back in the top 10 most popular programming languages

So, perhaps finally we cracked Tiobe's weird definition of "popular" :-) ("evil grin")

Given the multitude of node.js and other JS frameworks, I wonder how large the gap between rank 8 (JavaScript, descended from 7) and Perl's rank 9 really is...

And Assembly language raised from rank 28 to 12??

    It happenned several months ago already. The index also shows the Ratings, so the difference seems to be 0.082.

    I guess the Assembly raise is a consequence of the introduction of WebAssembly, bit I might be wrong.

    See also Perl back in TIOBE top ten.
