After considering the specific aspects of robot programming some examples of general purpose languages applied to robots and languages specifically designed for robotics are discussed. Criteria for making a choice between the two approaches should take into account the present state-of-the-art. The need of a strong integration between different components (robots, vision systems, and other automation equipment) could support the first approach. The solution of robot and robot users' problems has, until now, supported the second approach, as indicated by the choices of European robot manufacturers. Nevertheless, the expression of actions taken by different intelligent agents, as robots can be defined in the future, will require absolutely new linguistic media.
