Posted by CodeX [send private reply] at May 30, 2003, 01:50:32 PM I know many people have asked what language to start with, but i'm curious as to what language YOU use most frequently. I personally use euphoria the most, but i'm looking to change over to another language and am currently learning python and taking a look at perl.

Posted by stilldo [send private reply] at June 01, 2003, 02:37:53 AM I use Python most of the time, and i think I'm getting good enough to start my own newbiees guide (Pity I can't afford to register a domain name in Australia...):
i haven't had time to add all that many rtf files yet, but im getting there. I did that in about half an hour this afternoon... not bad for someone who laast thought about touching HTML three years ago ;P
anyway, Im all chuffed now... and yes, tthis is just a crass way of getting hits, but there you go.
Posted by gian [send private reply] at June 01, 2003, 04:22:50 AM I suppose once upon a time I used C and PHP most frequently, but recently I've staged something of a transition to Python and SML. Not to say that I don't still use C (I've abandoned PHP completely, thankfully), but I've really been enjoying the SML Experience.

Posted by Psion [send private reply] at June 01, 2003, 01:19:26 PM stilldo, anyone can register com/net/org domains. I use www.godaddy.com, which is US$8.95/year, and I've seen lower prices elsewhere.
Posted by stilldo [send private reply] at June 03, 2003, 01:02:13 AM nono, the problem is that i really don't have the time.. or even that measly amount of money.
i think i need a job :(
Posted by Psion [send private reply] at June 03, 2003, 08:06:25 AM stilldo, you don't like the tutorials we have linked from http://www.hprog.org/fhp/LearnProgramming ? Python seems to have some of the best free educational support on the net, so I wonder why you are making one.
Posted by AnyoneEB [send private reply] at June 03, 2003, 06:12:47 PM I use Java for applications and PHP for web scripting.
Posted by AngelOD [send private reply] at June 04, 2003, 10:03:05 AM Well, I use Delphi/Kylix and PHP mainly, though I have been falling in love with C#. I never liked C++, and although C was good, it took too long to be financially viable for production (to me, not generalizing here, mind you).
I've looked at lots of languages, but most of them are _so_ not me.. Perl, Ruby, Python, and SML are some of the ones I've tried, and rejected. Not because they suck, but because they don't "speak" to me. I guess that's why there are so many programming languages.. Because people who can't find one they like, create their own, and if others like it too, they use it. :o)
Posted by Psion [send private reply] at June 04, 2003, 11:30:59 AM Heh, you can use that subjective excuse, but it really is true that some programming languages allow more productivity from their best users than others.

Been programming waaaaay too much these days.. Can't figure out what you just said.. It seemed like a regular comment, but could probably be an insult or a compliment.. O.o
Posted by DragonWolf [send private reply] at June 05, 2003, 04:32:13 AM I like Java, C++, C# and PHP, I guess Java is currently my most frequently used one. When I eventually have the time I'll try and pick up SML.
Posted by diegoeskryptic [send private reply] at June 05, 2003, 06:32:15 PM I like Python. Its easy to learn and (from a newbie perspective) introduces Computer science concepts (FUnctions, Objects) with much ease. The runner up languages include Java, Perl, and C++
Posted by Psion [send private reply] at June 05, 2003, 06:42:57 PM I won't even waste my time by typing textualized acts of violence against diego for including no functional languages.
Posted by diegoeskryptic [send private reply] at June 06, 2003, 12:54:06 PM Sorry Master P :-) did u want me to include ML in there somewhere? I knew u were gonna have a comment...
