Languages Used for CGI Programming
- This is a new question to the Fourth Survey. The idea here is to
try to gain a better understanding in who is using what languages
for CGI programming.
- The majority of people who develop CGI applications use Perl (46.7%),
followed by C (12.5%), C++ (9.5%), and shell scripts (8.1%).
- Users in Europe were less likely to use Perl (43.7% Europe vs 47.8% US),
and more likely to use either C (14.8% Europe vs 11.9% US), shell scripts
(12.5% Europe vs 7.5% US), and OLE (8.0% Europe vs 0.3% US).
- There were no significant differences between Weekend and Weekday users,
though Weekend users reported using Apple Script more than their Weeday counterparts
(8.9% Weekend vs 6.0% Weekday).
By Access Time
- Women CGI programmers reported using Perl (50.3% women vs 46.1% men)
and "other" languages (12.7% women vs 7.8% men). Men reported using more C
than women (13.2% vs 8.1%) and shell scripts (8.6% vs 5.2%). There were no
significant differences between gender for the other languages.
