C Language Drops to Lowest Popularity Rating
In the latest update to the Tiobe programming language popularity index, C scored its lowest rating ever: 11.303 percent. Not too long ago, C was regularly at the top of Tiobe's chart; now, it's a distant second behind Java. "One of the main reasons for this drop is that C is hardly suitable for the booming fields of Web and mobile app development," said Tiobe. "Moreover the C programming language doesn't evolve like the other big languages, such as Java, C++, and C#."
