I don't trust the Tiobe index all that much. It's biased towards hard-to-master languages with forums that are parsable by search engines. So easy-to-learn languages will be ranked lower because users wouldn't need to ask forums for every second line in their program. Languages that have dedicated central forums/other communication channels that are not indexable by Google are also ranked lower.

A prime example of the latter would probably be ABAP, the language used by SAP systems. It's a well-payed job in nearly every large multicorp, but a lot of language support happens behind closed doors. It may not be popular in the sense of "beloved", but it's certainly popular in the sense of "everyone uses SAP. If this thing goes down, the company is too buggered to even file for bankruptcy because we wouldn't be able to tell the judge our assets and liabilities".

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
