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.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "Questions asking us to recommend a tool, library or favorite off-site resource are off-topic for Programmers as they tend to attract opinionated answers and spam. Instead, describe the problem and what has been done so far to solve it." – gnat, Community, Community, Kilian Foth, Dan Pichelman
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.
