History of programming languages

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Daniel Carrera, Dec 12, 2003.

  1. Here is a diagram with a "family tree" showing the history of programming
    languages. Ruby is in there.

    http://www.levenez.com/lang/

    It shows Ruby cross-polinating from Perl, Eiffel, Smalltalk, and Python.

    The author also has diagrams for the history of Unix and Windows. The
    Unix one is very impressive. Unix is truly a diverse family.

    Cheers,
