remove list of miscellaneous languages (current and historically significant languages have already been identified)
There are no fixed rules as to which programming languages are processed in which way, and indeed most languages can be handled in any of these three ways. Many languages have been implemented in two or more of these ways. Traditionally compilers have been used for languages where performance is important (e.g. Fortran, '''C'''), interpreters have been used for languages where convenience of use is important (e.g. most scripting and command languages), and translation to intermediate code has been used when machine-independence is considered to be important (e.g. Java).
==Assorted Languages== Information about some 2,500 programming languages can be found in 'The Language List'.<ref>{{cite web| url =http://people.ku.edu/~nkinners/LangList/Extras/langlist.htm| title = The Language List | accessdate =2012-03-16}}</ref>
According to LangPop <ref>{{cite web
:Simula 67 was the first object-oriented language.
:[[C]] showed that operating systems and compilers could be written in a high-level language.
 
Most of the program code in use today is written in C, C++, COBOL, and Java. Other popular general-purpose languages include BASIC, Pascal, and C#. There are literally thousands of programming languages, although many of them are simply variants of others. Variants are called '''dialects'''. Thus, Visual BASIC is a dialect of BASIC.
