The Server software will run under WinXP SP2


For a business that doesn't sound like a good idea. Even normal databases designed for XP had IP ports so a server could run on a different more modern computer and just communicate with the legacy system. Both could run behind normal security setups.

Many young programmers I speak to consider C and CPP a sort of old fashioned ancient languages, long superseded by Java, JS, JCODE, Perl, C# and CS!


Perl? I haven't seen anyone actively using Perl except me basically ever. In the 90s I worked in a shop that was exclusively Unix programmers and far as I could tell of the 300 developers I was the only one that knew how to use it. And since then even knowing that exists has gone down.

And I have no idea what "CS" would be given that you already referred to C#.

My guess is that embedded programming uses a lot of C. That is the only reason I can see for the popularity in the tiobe index at number 2 for C.

Very few of these realize that All these interpreters are ultimately written in 'C' or 'ASM'.


Nope.

The Java VM is written in Java excluding a very small subset of C++. The Java compiler is written completely in Java - it in fact runs in the Java VM. And that second statement has been true for a very long time probably at least early 2000s. Eclipse and Intellij are both written in java. The very earliest Java compiler might have had ASM in it but at least in about the late 90s it did not (I used to look at the source code quite a bit.)

The current C# compiler is written in C#. I believe it was C++ before that. Visual Studio appears to be written, best as I can tell, mostly in javascript.

GCC has been C++ since 2012. Before that it was C.

There might be some very small niche processors that use an assembler compiler written in assembler. But even back at least in the 80s assemblers were written in languages besides assembler.
