For programming languages categorized by generational numbers, see programming language generations.

Here, a genealogy of programming languages is shown. Languages are categorized under the ancestor language with the strongest influence. Those ancestor languages are listed in alphabetical order. Of course, any such categorization has a large arbitrary element, since programming languages often incorporate major ideas from multiple sources.
