Description

This page references old programming languages, which have not evolved for more than en years, or have disappeared. Some new languages may have appeared, that may be interesting to reference. Some languages are still living, but the links have changed, and so on.

This ticket is for providing information about those, and propose actions to update the page

comment:1 by Pierre Labastie, 3 years ago

  • A+: the web site still exists, but no new version after 2008. Suggestion: keep since does no harm
  • ABC: the web site exists. but no version after 2012. Suggestion: keep since does no harm
  • ALF: the web site still exists. Only one version available, no date, no version number. Suggestion: keep since does no harm
  • ASM: last version in January 2020: links need updating, although the old link to the project home page redirects to the new one. The download link is dead.

Starting from the end:

  • strace: still maintained. Update the links (in my sandbox)
  • oprofile: links still exist, but seems stalled
  • gocache: links exist, but untouched since 2008, and must be dead because there is a variable with this name in go compiler. Proposition: comment out (in my sandbox)
  • exuberant ctags: seems old but very much in use (for vim).
  • distcc: alive, nox at github (in my sandbox).
  • ddd: no modification since 2003 (or I have not found the new site). Needs Motif (lesstif). Suggestion: try to find a more modern graphic debugger.
  • ccache: alive. Links need to be updated (in my sandbox)
  • cachecc1: no updates since 2004. Similar to ccache. Suggestion: comment out
