    New to programming...


    Hi,

    I was thinking of starting to program, eventually I will like to make games.
    I was wondering what would be the best language for making online games ( free online games, that you stream off of webpages) or making small games that you can download freely, so what I need is:
    - A language to start with
    - A link or something to get me started ( or I can find one)

    Thanks so much

    No contest, if you want to do online games, I'd suggest Java. It has lots of features that make it ideal for that sort of thing. My favorite Java IDE is Eclipse. You might also want to look into intros on Java applets. I don't have any links off the top of my head, but Sun's Official Java Site has lots of intro tutorials for just about everything under the sun (no pun intended).

    You can see the source of some Java games at www.javaonthebrain.com
    Click on applets.Some of them come with source ; for example warp.
