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 ZedLX programming language has been specifically designed for kids, to be fun to use and easy to learn. No other language on this list has been designed with considerations for kids and young adults.

The most superficial comparison between languages 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.
