Once upon a time, I heard from someone
the only difference between programming languages is the syntax
I wanted to deny it - to say that there are other fundamental aspects that truly set a language apart from others than just syntax.
But I couldn't... So, can you?
Whenever I search Google for something like "differences between programming languages", the results tend to be debates between two specific languages (I'd like something more general) - however, some of the aspects that people seemed to debate the most were:
- Method/Operator overloading (I actually see this rather related to syntax)
- Garbage-Collection (While it seems like a good difference, for some reason it doesn't seem that "fundamental")
What important aspects other than syntax can you think of?
