easy:

harder:

complex:

which programing language has best doc?

which programing language is more powerful or expressive but remain readable?

roughly:

  1. WolframLang
  2. PowerShell
  3. ruby
  4. scheme
  5. python
  6. perl
  7. php
  8. golang
  9. clojure
  10. JavaScript
  11. java
  12. emacs lisp

by the way, the only way to know and judge a programing language is to actually learn it and code it for 2 hours per day for say 6 months. Years of reading other people's blogs are useless, unless the gap or nature is big, such as C vs haskell.
