The next 50:

  • ABC, Algol, Alpha, Applescript, AspectJ, Beta, Boo, cg, Clean, Csh, cT, Curl, DC, Dylan, Eiffel, EXEC, Factor, Felix, Focus, Icon, IDL, Inform, Io, Limbo, Lingo, MAD, Magic, Maple, Mathematica, Modula-2, MOO, MUMPS, Oberon, Occam, Oz, Pike, Postscript, Powerbuilder, Progress, Q, REALbasic, Rebol, S-lang, Scala, SIGNAL, SPSS, VBScript, Verilog, VHDL, XSLT

Personally I have no used Java in years, nor C/C++.

Visual Basic deserves to be split into its VB6 and Visual Fred components. (I have unfortuanately used both of these in the last 3 years).

I use php for a website that I maintain.

Perl, Python, C# and Delphi have all been used.
My raw pascal has not been touched for years.

Futher down the list I have used: Fortran (a long time ago), T-SQL, Tcl/Tk, APL.

Of the bottom items: Boo, Powerbuilder (powerblunder), VBScript

Not sure how accurate this list is.
