You've already asked that question (http://pressf1.co.nz/showthread.php?t=106438). You need some kind of programming language

Like C, Delphi, Pascal, Python or whatever.

Any programming language is easy provided you know the syntax and you have an idea about logic.

Learning any language is alot easier if you bother to learn and understand not just how to do something but why it works as well

try just basic

But then Basic is an interpreted language and I see no way of compiling the code as such.

Hmm, the pro tech master asks a basic question.
Perhaps a slight exaggeration there on your choice off name?


You program them. In whatever language. And yes, you can compile Basic.

Depends what sort of app he is wanting to create !

A new operating system perhaps

A full accounting software suite with 10 modules.

A word processor

A game like Myst or Warhammer

Or just a Windows widget !

Or an Iphone app ?

He should have told us.

I'm guessing a new user is going to come along and show us a wonderful new product that makes it possible to create custom programs for windows in minutes! With no programming knowledge necessary!!!

Just in case I was referring to GWBasic back when it came with MSDos 3.3.
That was interpreted back then.

A bit of a shame that windows does not come with similar.

Linux on the other hand has GCC.

We learnt Visual Basic at school this year (Level 1 NCEA) and I picked it up very quickly. Its easy to use and understand and I made some cool things in it!

Phrogram could be a good starting point to learn how programming works. As a language it's pretty pointless and very limited, but it does show quite well how things work and how to use them.

You can get a 30 day trial for free and then once you get the idea of it, perhaps move onto something proper like Visual Basic (you can download Express editions of that from Microsoft for free too!)

Then again, it might be best starting with VB or whatever to begin with. Learning a pointless language like Phrogram's KPL and then changing to something else could be annoying.

There is also Small Basic which is designed for beginner programmers and it's fairly consistent with Visual Basic.

Having said that, learning the basics of a full language like C# isn't actually all that hard with a good book (I like the Learning C# book published by O'Reilly) and some patience with trying examples and reading things a few times over.

Depending on the answer to Digby's question, a script might even be enough to do the trick.

So which language/system have you decided to use out of all those suggestions?
I'm sure others around here would value the final opinion of a Computermaster.
