How many programming languages have you dabbled in?

And how many are you proficient in?

A friend and I were discussing the different languages we've tried and their differences, I had trouble remembering all that I've at least dabbled in. But I came up with a list.

I for one am proficient in around 3 or 4 languages at any given time, but proficiency comes and goes with irregular usage.


C/C++
Haskell
Python
Java
Clojure
javascript
LISP (clisp, racket, and scheme)
Ruby
Go
Dart
Basic
C#
F#
ASM for the TI-83/Ti-84 calculators
D
COBOL
Scala
Bash
Perl
Prolog
Fortran


so, what's in your aresenal?
HTML
Actionscript 2/3
C++
Java
J

Though I am only proficient in C++ and decent with J.
dabbled or was proficient in at one time:
assembly languages: PDP-11, x86, mips, arm, ppc/power, sparc, x86_64, ia64
others: PL/1, BASIC, Pascal, Forth, Fortran, PostScript, awk, Mathematica, perl, Hope, Java, Joy, J, Tcl/expect, sendmail.cf (yes!), ircii/epic/ctoolz script, Scheme, Prolog, APL, Haskell, JavaScript, Python, OCaml, PHP, ksh.. can't think of any more off-hand.

currently proficient: C++, C

I'm going to list all languages I have dabbled in.


Assembler            BASIC                    C                    C++
C#                       Java                      JavaScript        Ruby
Perl                      Python                  D                     Prolog
Erlang                  HTML                    PHP                  CSS
XML                     VB                        Lisp (racket and scheme)
Haskell                 TCL                      Makefile             Lua

Even with my wife and son's health, I have a lot of time on my hands for trying out new languages. Those are just the ones I remember right now.

Oh! Forgot TCL, Lua, Erlang and Ocaml. And I didn't think to include HTML, XML or SQL.
Java
UnrealScript
C
C++
D
Python
Perl (vomit)
Bash
Go (vomit)
Non-objective Pascal (quite clean if you get used to it)

Proficient in C/C++, UnrealScript, Bash.

I'd like to say D but I just... can't get past the forced GC barrier. It drives me nuts.
Assembler
Bash
Batch
C
C#
C++
D
Go
HTML + CSS
Java
JavaScript + jQuery
LolCode
Markdown
Objective C
PHP
Python
Ruby on Rails
SQLite + MYSQL
Visual Basic
XML

In about the order that I have last used seriously:
C++
Python
Lua
PHP
MySQL
Java
C#
FORTRAN
C
R
Bash
Javascript
Ruby
Assembly (x86, x86_64, arm)
Visual Basic / Pascal / Delphi
ActionScript
Erlang
Batch

Other languages that I have used, but not seriously:
D
Piet
INTERCAL
Objective C
Go
Haskell
Lisp (clisp)
Smalltalk

(by not seriously, I mean either just for a laugh or because I thought 'that looks interesting, lets see what its syntax is like).

Yea, for shits and giggles is why I picked up COBOL and FORTRAN
Dabbled in:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
C++
C
Python
Bash
PHP
JavaScript
Scheme
PLC Programming (if you call Ladder Logic a programming language)


Reasonably comfortable in C and C++, though I am beginning to like python syntax and am practising it more often.

Hmm I've looked into:

I'm proficient/know relatively lot in (in no specific order):
1
2
3
4
5
C
C++
Java
Python
Ruby


Sometimes I get annoyed with Python (for some specific reasons), I won't go into details why. I find myself using C++ mostly.

Edit: Added two more languages I remember taking a look at xD

Wow, almost all of you really knew a dozen languages

The ones i knew are :

C / C++
Python  // currently learning planning to learn
Java     // currently learning planning to learn
C#       // planning to learn
x86 ASM // stopped for no apparent reason
Visual Basic // forced to learn because it's taught in school


Obviously, I'd say i'm most proficient (not that high) with C/C++
( it's also my first language )

To be fair, some of us have been doing this for a long time and have a lot of free time/really enjoy picking up a new language.
For me that would be (languages I know best / used the most come first):
C
Python
C++
Ada
Javascript
Scheme/Lisp
68k assembler
PowerPC assembler
Pascal
x86 assembler
Lua
Ruby
VHDL
Java
Basic
Verilog

and also batch, HTML, XML but those are hardly programming languages.
My meager list of languages compared to everyone else is


Proficient
C++
C#
Python

Some Skill:
Lua


Well... That was a bit lack luster lol.
C++
Java
Python
C
JavaScript
HTML & CSS
PHP



The first 4 are the only ones I could write anything of substance in at this point in time. Last 3 would take a little bit of acclamation time before I could write much. So don't feel bad CodeGazer :) Seems like most people specialize in just a handful of technologies, and gather bits of others over time as needed.
just dabbled?
c, c++, obj-c, java, javascript, html5, css3, php, python, ruby, ruby-style c++ cgi, bash, batch, windows powershell, a few flavors of assembly, lua, basic, lisp, pascal, dart, go, D, make, sql, lolcode, alchemy, flex, perl, and bison
My list is small

Proficient

2
C++
Python

Although more with python than c++

And dabbled in

HTML
CSS
Java
