True, no one actually learns Cobol for modern programming, but it still takes the majority, about 50% of code, out there because of so many banking systems too important to risk error with to possibly update. Dusty old databases!

corba is not a programming language. Do u even know the full form of corba? if u have known you wouldnt have thought it to be a programming language. CORBA ( Common Object Resource Broker Architecture ) is an architecture of sharing the objects or components across the network, even may be global.

In the computer world exist a lot of languages, I don't know really how many languages but they are a lot, if you are interest in to learn a language you would to start with c++ that will help you a lot understanding better them. For internet there is a some languages that are really useful to learn like Java, html, javasscript. I am learning c++ and I think it is the better language to make scientific programs, but there is some new languages like python that have a better performing for windows base computer, so you like you can see there is so many.

There are just too many programming languages around, and a new one seems to come up every other year. The existing ones are also upgrading to better versions. Ideally one should always know the C programming language and one more Object oriented programming language like C++ and/or Java. To star with these are sufficient and should serve almost all pre-liminary purposes. I know the basics of these 2 programming languages.

There are as many languages as you could ask for, and most of them have several sub-languages that are related to them. If you have the expertise, you can make your own programming language, and if it is good and useful, others might start using it as well. What a programming language does, is translate your commands into a list of commands that the computer's CPU can understand (such as logical and mathematical calculations). When you compile a program, that translation is made. After the compiling is complete, the program is the same no matter what language you wrote it in. At that time, it is in the 'assembly' code that every computer with compatable hardware can understand.

Well, I am not a programmer but my husband is. So at least I know a little bit about it:) I think the most popular programming languages are C++ and Java.
