What programming languages are affected by Y2038?

Virtually every programming language is potentially affected by Y2038. While “C” was the initial computer language in which the problem was introduced, most other programming languages adopted the same representation for current time. Many development platforms follow the conventions established on the given platform. For example, Mac applications (prior to OSX) are susceptible to the Mac’s Y2038-like issue in the year 2040, regardless of the language used to write the application.
