hey
this is my first post on this forum (excluding miniboard) so i'm only posting here to get my first post lol

actually I would like to suggest another alternative completely. High-level assembler. start at http://www.movsd.com/masm.htm . it explains it pretty well. the advantage is that you get familiar with some of the high-level stuff with the high-level MASM syntax (which bears resemblance to C) but you'll learn assembly at the same time. there are many tutorials (see links on that page). many will disagree with me but assembly is probably the most important language to know, because once you know that, you'll realize all the other languages are just syntax variations for the same code (put _basically_). if you have the time to invest, and you're serious about programming, it'll be worth it.

I started programming in C/C++ and then Delphi but it didn't help me understand what programming was. it was basically just, i.e., if you wanna put text on screen use "cout". but it doesn't explain programming itself (i.e., how the characters actually got on the screen). ASM was the way to go for me.

but for your kind of program, considering it's not performance-inclined, you'd be good with Delphi/Pascal.

oh man, what was I thinking posting that under a "Linux" board lol?!

there are still some good assemblers for linux (FASM, NASM) though, and I know FASM's macros got some people working on high-level syntax which works very well. still a thing to consider.

Hmmm, I think it was originally in the "Programming" forum rather than the "Linux" one, then madppiper merged them both...

it'd be nice if that were true, but I'm pretty sure I posted that under the combined forum lol (unless the date proves otherwise)

erm, back to the original post, my favorite language is basic, specifically, I use blitz basic, which is extremly easy to use, even for someone like me. its biggest use is video games, but you can create some real high end software. it comes in both 2d and 3d, im having a lot of fun with it. there are lots better programs/languages out there, but if your a noob to programming, give it a try at http://www.blitzbasic.com
