Well the language has the try-catch construct, and I see the keyword 'yield'. Google says that at least C# has 'yield'.

it could be Python in some kind of editor in unix/linux

I can see for words followed by a word, looks like in, like: for x in y.
and I think that try block is try - except (not try - catch)

well it's definitely not C#... all C# statements end with a semi-colon;

And.. it's NOT a mobile photo... It's a snagit screenshot from a video. There was no other way to clarify it.

Likely Python. I see a "def" used to define a function. try-catch and yield are also Python, as is the use of whitespace to delimit blocks (instead of braces and semicolons in languages with a C-style syntax).

Well as a clue, the video of the project is here:

The image I captured is around the 2:16 mark.

Definitely Python. At the top of his screen you can see the "from ... import ..." statements, and he's using list comprehensions [... for ... in ...].

Awesome. thanks. i think it's time to take the plunge to learn a brand new language. I've been long enough in the .NET languages and Java... Never ventured out deep enough into the newer stuff they call Python. let the journey begin!

Absolutely python, if statements ended with a ':' give it away.

The editor might be Geany or Gedit.

Monty python?

I'm no programmer, but maybe something like...

Rule 1 Fetch e-mail containing dead parrot- proceed to rule 2
Rule 2 In case of Spam- refer to rule 5
Rule 3 No spam- refer to rule 4
Rule 4 Display e-mail of dead parrot
Rule 5 Singing vikings

No, seriously, the only programming I've ever done was batch files in MS-DOS, but I hope I've made a somewhat humurous point.

The language is allegedly named after Monty Python. The IDE that comes bundled with Python is even called IDLE (as in Eric). Python textbooks and tutorials also tend to contain Monty Python references (e.g. "spam" and "eggs" as example input values).

Oh, and a couple of years ago Google had a project to come up with a compiler that would compile Python to native machine code. The name of the project? "Unladen Swallow".

The editor looks like notepad++ to me.

No "allegedly" about it; it /is/ named after Monty Python. In addition to IDLE, there's a fancy 3rd-party IDE that's called Eric.
