    I would help but I'd probably be more of a hinderance as C is not my forte. Thanks for the invite though.

    Oxygen: Quake 3? That's awesome, that's like my favorite game, lol. Good luck.


    And yeah, I want to try to find a class that teaches C++.

    You realize that unless you plan on developing with Mono, C sharp is a strictly Microsoft language, correct?

    C sharp was created as part of Microsoft's .NET framework. Although the language itself is a "standard", the only two "frameworks" available to run it are the one made by Microsoft (which only works on MS Windows) and the one developed by the Mono Project.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C_sharp

    If you're trying to find a programming language based on what's easier you should just quit now. That's absolutely the wrong mindset for a programmer. All languages have their strengths and all languages are difficult at some point. Scripting languages may seem easy to get started with, but they can get very complex down the road. My advice is to find a language that has the capabilities you need (such as a decent 2D/3D graphics library and the ability to develop in Linux) and go from there.

    You're going to have to spend a lot of time and effort learning any new language. Those of us who program professionally are constantly learning new things about the languages we use. It's impossible to learn everything there is to know about any one programming language unless that language is incredibly simple (and therefore incredibly limited in it usefulness).

    Programming languages are also a lot like Linux distributions in one aspect: everyone has a favorite. I found C++ to be relatively easy, and Java even eaiser, but that's just me. There were folks I knew in college who considered assembly language easy. "Easy" is a relative term, and not one that you should strive for. Pick a language that you think will be useful, and don't worry about whether or not it might be easy.

    These are what we called uber-nerds . I never thought I would here anyone say that.

    Thanls for the pointer Moe. I just find it cumbersome that with C# you have to install their .net framework.

    I know that is a very silly question but is there any programming language that doesn't need a framework / the framework that was used to create it can be included as a standalone .exe file?

    Hope you get my drift,

    Tim

    P.s. I have checked on Google but no-one can give me a stright answer to the question.
