are marked obsolete:
are *not* marked obsolete:
All the others I see are either not programming languages (that is, at
least "Turing-complete"...), including those that are not mainly
or they're not in the list or I haven't seen them.
In addition, most programming language file formats in common use are not
registered with IANA and instead are listed in the "mime.types" file of
the most used http serving software on the planet, with names like
application/x-* ... this includes sh, csh, perl, tcl, tex,
In addition, that http serving software doesn't include the full list of
registered mime types.
In the light of this, I propose application/x-pure-data or
application/x-puredata and nothing else.
