Fortran Programming Language

fortran is more popular


I found this link while trying to get my bearings with perl.  I asked, in
the german-language forum, how popular Perl was in Germany and managed to
touch off a little debate.  Let's hope I haven't disrupted German unity:-)
http://www.tiobe.com/tpci.htm

Fortran shows itself more popular this April than last, holding its spot at
20th.  While some may disagree with say, Java, being 25 times as popular as
Fortran, the numbers are compelling.  It looks like they work hard to get
these stats.  It's rare to find a site that can even list a hundred computer
languages in a sensical manner.  Thought it might interest.

It looks very bogus to me.

Note that ABAP is suddenly rising in the rankings. It's been around
for a long time, it's the extension language for SAP. Do you really
think it's gotten 4X as popular in the last year, or is someone
manipulating the rankings?

Wouldn't, in the top twenty, there be about one that had gained so heavily,
and unless ABAP is the in-house language of the Republican Party, I wouldn't
suspect it of fraud, so sure.

I assure you that SAP's sales have not risen by anywhere near 4X in
the past year. Remember, the burden of proof is on Tiobe, not me.

Mind you, Google shows only 1/3 as many hits for "ABAP Programming" as
"Fortran Programming". B-O-G-U-S.

If they're measuring how much garbage about those languages makes the
Web, their rankings may not be far off. I suppose c.l.f gets mirrored to
where they see it, but even among newsgroups. the garbage rate is
relatively low.  A lot of useful gfortran mail list posts probably slip
under their radar.  I don't expect Fortran people to try to modify
behavior so as to get their share of hits on this site.
