Generations Of Programming Languages

I know about a programming language called Informix 4GL. I understand that it is of 4th generation. I wonder if we have other programming languages of other generations like 3GL or 6GL. And how do we put assembly languages or object oriented programming languages into the picture? Thanks a lot.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would argue that VB is a 4GL, and not a 5GL as said in that 2nd link... ;-)

Depends on what definition you will adopt for 5GL. This varies a bit between different sources.
If we go with the ones from wiki - yep - it is not.
