I already responded off-list to Michael Hines, the originator of this
thread, but perhaps I can just add if all everyone is interested in
is a list of programming languages, you can find a nice list
at the ACM Hello World page:

I would have mentioned it earlier had I known that we were
going to continue down this rabbit trail.  Besides, there are
lots of other similar sites available. (Google is your friend. ;-)

Now let's get back on track of WHAT collecting such a list
has to do with secure programming. Does the original poster
(Michael Hines) intend on developing an ontology of programming
languages based on how they support (or fail to support--whoa,
really big list ;-) secure programming? If so, I can see how
we might all learn some lessons from that. If not, I guess I'm
missing the whole point this thread was started, so please
enlighten me.
