Wading through it all, you get to this on page 8:
| These [the results] are the results of the judgment of one
| or several persons for each language. In particular there
| were 2 persons to evaluate Erlang, 3 for C++, 2 for Haskell,
| 4 for VHDL, 2 for SDL and 2 for ProGram.
I.e. they asked between 4 and 15 people what they thought about
various aspects of one or more language and then put the results in
impressive-looking tables, assigned fancy abbreviations and the odd
greek letter before fudging around.
They conclude that you can't conclude anything from the exercise.
I agree completely.
