Family Of Programming Languages

The family of programming languages refers to a group of programming languages that share a common ancestry, design philosophy or purpose. Members in a language family will often have similar syntax, semantics, and usage patterns due to their shared roots or evolution from previous iterations. Often these language families encompass multiple generations of programming languages with newer versions evolving from older ones through standardization and other forms of advancement. A notable example is the C-family (including C, C++ and Objective-C), which has been influential in shaping many modern software development practices.
