Does anyone know of a good place to go find comparisons of programming languages by the intended platform/usage? Basically, what I want to know, is of the more popular languages, which ones are meant for high level application development, low level system development, mobile development, web, etc. If there's a good listing out there already, I'm not finding it so far. Does anyone know of a place that would have this? Thanks.
Have a look at the right tool website.
The principle : the site gives a list of languages, and a list of statements. Anyone can give his opinion on whether the statement applies to the languages they are familiar with. The results are browsable by languages and by statements.
Not sure if this is what you're after, but Wikipedia has a pretty awesome categorical list of languages.
