hi i am new to programming and script writing
i would like to ask if anyone on here wouldn't mind taking a couple min out of there day to help me out with a few things

I am really stuck right now on just getting started with what i need to START i know that that is probably a pretty big question so i will start out small and just ask what are some of the basic essentialls that i will need to get started.

Wile telling me how to get started if you wouldn't mind just giving me a short description of the proper use of thing and just what i should look for if i am doing things properly or incorrect like i said before i am only just starting out and i would like to start small and just more or less get the ball rolling.

I work with computers most of the day and hooking up internet and would like to further my knowledge with the future (computers).

i am a part of lots of forums mainly pertaining to jeeps and we are always trying to help the little guys out in getting bigger and more knowledgeable about what they are getting into and i am hopping that it is the same way here and in this area or expertise

thanks again i look forward to starting out:thumbsup:

Ummm... And so what kind of script are you interested in?

You want to create an interactive driving game where players use their Jeeps to run over pedestrians?

Or you want to create an EBay-like site where people bid on Jeep hood ornaments?

Or you want a forum where people can post messages?


Your question re programming is kind of like "Okay, now you bought a Jeep. What are you going to do with it? Race it, paint it, try to get better gas mileage, or take it apart to see how it works?"

I am *NOT* being flippant. There are so many many many things you can do with programming that until you have some sense of direction, we can't really point out what you need to learn.

What it sounds like your looking for is a tutorial of the most basic basics, and rather than try to create a tutorial in codingforums.com, I thought this list might help you

These came in handy when I knew nothing, but they may have been updated since I first read them...

This is a bunch of references by liorean (a codingforums.com Advisor):

This looked kinda interesting:

And most importantly Search Google:

This is not a brush off, I really think this answers your question; and I hope that these will help you to decide what you would like to learn about first.
