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.

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

Commented:
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.

Mmmmm...  C grade...

hw3281, any reason why our answers (which completely answered your question) deserve such a bad grade?

If you weren't happy with the answers, then you could have posted a followup question
