VB is a 3GL - you program. A 4GL is a more abstract language were you specify what you want to do, not how you want to do it.

I think LISP could be considered a 4GL language.  It has been so many years I would have to look that one up.  VB is more 3GL now than it use to be.  Some say a language being interpruted makes it a 4GL language.  That means sometimes VB is, sometimes it isn't.  Going by this philosophy, Perl could be considered a 4GL language.

I guess my answer could be considered 4GL, since I misspelled interpreted.  Well, I tried.

Some examples of a 4GL: SQL, Focus from IBI, Mathematica, etc.
