Hi Allisont. Is Wolfram language the same as Mathematica? A superset? A subset? Also please put a meaningful Summary with your edits. Thanks. --Paddy3118 (talk) 14:48, 15 April 2014 (UTC)


Hi! The Wolfram Language is the programming language used in Mathematica. Until recently, the language had no name, so many users (understandably) referred to both the software and the language used as "Mathematica." Wolfram Research has since released the Wolfram Language as a standalone programming language that will no longer be bound to just the Mathematica software. So, in terms of programming languages, any reference to "Mathematica" is actually referring to "Wolfram Language." Eventually Mathematica should no longer be used in reference to being a programming language, though we recognize that this is still the way most people refer to the code at this time, thus we are not removing its page or examples from the wiki yet. I'll make sure to make this more clear in any future edits, thanks! --Allisont (talk) 15:28, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
