Reliability is a critical program evaluation criterion so much so that program writing (expressing one's computational ideas) will be of no use if the end result is not consistent. Programmers cognizant pertaining to a particular programming language selected for solving a particular computational problem will yield the desired result. This can only be achieved if the program written in a particular programming language either structured (C, C++) or Objected-Oriented (Java, C#, Ruby) is gauge

Simulating a soft-computing system comprising of genetic algorithm and fuzzy logic for determining program language reliability was the rationale behind this research paper. The reliability of programming language could be determined in terms of "Reliable", "Moderate Reliable" and "Not Reliable" based on the possessed reliability criteria of the examined programming language.
