I don't know if this is the appropriate place to post this but I was just wondering if there is an app or website that looks at all the code golf q's, their answers and shows which language tends to win on average? Something that parses each answer for char count for different languages and then plots which language on avg answers a code-golf question in how many characters and so on?
