in thread Time to change the (Perl 6) guard!

If a computer language takes more than three years to create, it's being developed incorrectly

I can't think of any languages (except perhaps assemblys) that didn't take several years to evolve into a useful form. Maybe you can help me out? What general-purpose languages have been developed correctly?

    FORTRAN...First version took over 3 years to develop 1954-1957. Probably the most successful language too, at least in terms of time it's been around. That's the closest I could find.

    There's probably a reference of computer languages that would have this information for various languages. I don't know of a web based one.

    It has been suggested to rename Perl 6 in order to boost its marketing potential. Which name would you prefer?
