    i guess i would recommend perl too cause it isnt quite as complicated as c or c++. you can actually write a program that will beable to be used with perl in a short time of learning it but in c or c++ it will take along time to get it all mastered.

    I began in BASIC.

    I haven't dabbled much in python, but from what I've seen/heard it's nice.

    My first was 'BASIC' on a sharp pc1500
    calculator. But thats only
    because it was available.
    Then QBASIC in windows for the same reason, and then Java in
    windows for the same reason. I realy liked Java, but now
    i'm fairly well converted to C. A lot depends on the system your
    working in, C is good as it keeps you in touch with low level
    concerns, and Linux/Unix is written in C. There all good really,
    with similar syntaxes. All based on the original 'psudo' code
    sheets the poor assemblers had to use in the early days.

    Main thing is to set some kind of goal or purpose to code to.
    Something you have an ethusiasm for to carry you through the
    inevitable frustrations that crop up.
    Then just experiment.

    good luck

    I want to start with C, which tools in Linux do you suggest for me to use?
    (gcc for compiler)
    What about the editor? Or the debbugger?

    Thank you in advance.

    I'd suggest that you try emacs, vi, vim, nano, mcedit, kwrite, kate, or pretty much any other text editor out there until you find one that you like. That's what it's all about. Doing what you want with the tools you want.

    i'd recommend HTML as your first language as it explains the simple things like needing parameters and commands. However i will have to advise you against learning Visual Basic before C or anything, it will numb your brain due to its ease then you'll find it hell starting C where you have to actually have to deal with proper types, trust me this happened to me!

    I LOVE C, so ace! lol
