C ,C++,Java,C#,JavaScript, ActionScript, ECMAScript[edit]

Which of these would be considered dialects of each other?

My opinion: only ActionScript/JavaScript/ECMAScript are dialects of each other. The others are all well defined languages in their own right. --IanOsgood 21:10, 12 July 2006 (UTC) 10:20, 13 November 2005 (UTC)

Use of the word 'newbie'[edit]

I noticed in the last part of the (actually quite short) article there is the use of the word newbie to define those individuals who are new to programming. Is this word really appropriate?

proposed merge[edit]

These are both stub articles with no references. It would appear that they could be merged with no loss of content. Peter Flass (talk) 11:19, 12 July 2014 (UTC)
