For longevity, we have Fortran and Lisp. For LOC, it's gotta be Cobol. Implementations, could be any of those three. What C implementations? pcc, gcc, Microsoft, a few others long dead? Fortran and Cobol were typically written from scratch with each new (and incompatible) computer. On the last two metrics, C probably wins. -- John Cowan <jcowan@r...> http://www.reutershealth.com I amar prestar aen, han mathon ne nen, http://www.ccil.org/~cowan han mathon ne chae, a han noston ne 'wilith. --Galadriel, _LOTR:FOTR_
