comment Do markup languages ​​have the equivalent concept of `semantics` that you can find in C or C++?
@user2485710: html is a language without expressions and/or statements, and any programming language will have one or the other and generally both. Lisp is a language without statements, brainfuck is a language without expressions. The ability to do a calculation is what makes a programming language. That is what HTML lacks, and why although it is a language, it is not a PROGRAMMING language.

comment What constitutes a programming language and how does one copyright a programming language?
Annnddd...this ruling was just overturned. Oracle appelaed, and this time the judges weren't programmers.

comment Do you have to have boxing of primitives in OO language?
@svick: actually it pretty much is boxing, just explicit. But it's a pretty rare edge case -- how often have you had a class with a property that isn't used in the class, but instead used by the users of the class?

comment Compiler Warnings
Not true, lots of compiler warnings are about things that the compiler understands 100% and is not in any state of flux (understood it previously, understands it now, will understand in the future), but is in the experience of the compiler writers, frequently written incorrectly. You are answering a 3+ year old question incorrectly...

comment Is there a purely SQL alternate to looping?
A minor correction -- if you want a running value, you want lead or lag, not sum; sum would be for a group and you get the same values for all members of the group/partition. Lead and lag are the values from the previous/next row.
