Genealogical tree of programming languages

Language designers want to design the perfect language. They want to be able to say, ‘My language is perfect. It can do everything.’ But it’s just plain impossible to design a perfect language, because there are two ways to look at a language. One way is by looking at what can be done with that language. The other is by looking at how we feel using that language-how we feel while programming.

smile = true
if smile
puts "Hello World!"
else
puts "You should smile"
end
let smile = true;
if (smile === true) {
console.log("Hello World!")
} else {
console.log("You should smile")
};
