I don't know about Objective-C, but I'm pretty sure that C++ cannot be considered as a C dialect. It is another language. Urli mancati 11:28, 30 June 2007 (UTC)[reply]

I think another title that dialects might feel better to all involved. I don't know if dialect is quite right. I think that Java and JavaScript also derives from C syntax. They look very similar. However, dialect makes it sound like they might be inter operable. Interestingly, some C code can be compiled as C++. I have no qualms with the current text but I can see how some people would.

irrelevant links[edit]

glibc · Dietlibc · uClibc · Newlib

What do these have to do with the C language itself? Nothing. I might as well put [insert some random library here]. Or [insert some random libc implementation]. – (talk) 04:05, 2 May 2008 (UTC)[reply]


I am not exactly sure should Groovy be in this template. It is a descendant of Java, but I am not sure does it have a similar C structure or is it just a programming language. Anyone who has expertise in this language please explain and add/remove accordingly, thanks. --Ramu50 (talk) 08:28, 29 November 2008 (UTC)[reply]

delphi is derivative of pascal, and groovy is derivative of java --Enric Naval (talk) 11:49, 29 November 2008 (UTC)[reply]

I seem your point about Groovy, but I think Delphi should be on there since it is a descendant of C#.— Preceding unsigned comment added by Ramu50 (talkcontribs) 22:25, 29 November 2008

What the heck are you talking about? Delphi is descended from Turbo Pascal and was released in 1995. C# was first released in 2000. How can Delphi be a descendant of C#? As for Groovy, have you tried reading the WP article? It has a C/Java-like syntax, so if Java is a descendant of C, then Groovy is too. Letdorf (talk) 23:05, 29 November 2008 (UTC).[reply]

What about image formats? (XBM/XPM)[edit]

What do you people think about adding to this template the image formats X BitMap and X PixMap, which take the form of C source files? Or is that kinda way-out-in-left-field? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:43, 12 February 2011 (UTC)[reply]


Vala is nonnotable. Some IP added it promotionally. It doesn't belong! Rursus dixit. (mbork3!) 13:42, 14 June 2011 (UTC)[reply]

  • Just to let you know I added Vala and it wasn't for promotion, I can't even program. I added it because it was an interesting descendant of C. Hence why I'm adding it back. -- (talk) 18:28, 1 April 2012 (UTC)[reply]

@Rursus: Vala is syntax similar to C#, therefore, it is true. NSInstance (talk) 09:06, 28 September 2020 (UTC)[reply]


Is there a reason ICC is not listed under compilers? It is officially called the "Intel C++ Compiler", but it is a C compiler too. --Apoc2400 (talk) 17:19, 28 November 2016 (UTC)[reply]
