A Study of Language Usage Evolution in Open Source Software [article]

Siim Karus, Harald Gall
2011 arXiv   pre-print
The use of programming languages such as Java and C in Open Source Software (OSS) has been well studied. However, many other popular languages such as XSL or XML have received minor attention.  ...  generally, we observed a significant increase of usage of XML and XSL during recent years and found that Java or C are hardly ever the only language used by a developer.  ...  This research was conducted during a visit of the first author to the software evolution and architecture lab at the University of Zurich. We thank the members of the lab for their valuable advice.  ...

2018 Zenodo  
Even we cannot do any kind of changes in the code. The source code for proprietary commercial software is usually a closely guarded secret.  ...  In this computer era, everything works on latest computer technology. Most of the time we work in proprietary commercial environment where we have to pay for its usage.  ...  INTRODUCTION Open source software is developed free of charge through a community driven development process, and as such, it is also provided to public at no cost, but under certain usage and distribution  ...

2017 2017 IEEE 24th International Conference on Software Analysis, Evolution and Reengineering (SANER)  
We believe a further study is required to explore this phenomenon. Our results reveal that exception usage patterns do not change during the evolution of software projects.  ...  Given the pervasiveness of exceptions in today's programming languages, many studies have looked at how developers use exceptions in [5] and revealed that there is still a wide misuse of exceptions as  ...  A C K N O W L E D G M E N T We gratefully acknowledge the financial support of the Swiss National Science Foundation for the project "Agile Software Analysis" (SNSF project No. 200020-162352, 01.01.2016  ...
