Quick Comparison of Programming Languages

Let's compare a few popular programming languages, like C, C++, Java, C#, Javascript, PHP, and Python to ZedLX.

The most superficial comparison can be made on a syntactic level. The syntax of a programming language specifies how various language constructs are written.

C-style syntax is very popular among languages and programmers. Almost all languages in the list: C, C++, Java, C#, Javascript, PHP use a C-language alike free-form syntax, and this also includes ZedLX, which is a free-form programming language.

Python is the only language on the list that uses somewhat different, but still similar syntax. Python does not have a free-form syntax.

While ZedLX is more similar to the rest of the programming languages, its syntax is not entirely in C-style. Instead, it leans somewhat towards the Python-style syntax.
