    You could try python, seeing as it is a scripting language. You would however need to use the interpreter which is only a small download I think.

    Why not get gcc or the free borland compiler? They are free and if you want to use gcc you can find heaps of good IDEs' for them.

    Or if you're running win 95/98 you would have QBasic on your computer and could learn to program BASIC.

    www.python.org
    www.dev-cpp.org
    www.mingw.org
    www.borland.com

    A few languages:

    PHP, ASP, VB, VBScript, JScript, Java, C, C++, Perl, SQL, REBOL, BASIC, Pascal, Fortran, Cold Fusion, ADA, REXX.

    There are about 8 gazillion. Minus a few.

    You're not going to be able to create a game or anything advanced straight away. Read some of the links given to you, do some examples, if you've not got programming experience then it may take a while for it to sink in.

    I would go for C++ myself. Either VB or C++ will be a good place to start.

    You can be messing around with console applications in a few minutes with c++.


    The problem with VB is you'll have to pay money. You can start right away with c++ with no outlay.

    Hmm. you could even try studying php. Check out the manual on the PHP site. It covers some of the basics of programming.....Ah-ha! I recommend you look atSun's Java as a beginning language. It's pretty good.

    Either php or java. your decision. php doesn't require a compiler....so.....


    If you *do* decide to start using php, check out phpdev, from firepages.

    I orinigally had about 3000 lines of tutorial typed here, but I'm going to replace it with a much more basic tutorial.

    Many programming languages contain the following similar things:

    1. Variables. These are used to hold values. You can store almost any kind of data in these little guys. There are different kinds of variables, and you use them in different ways. Some variables hold random streams of characters (like a sentence). These are STRINGS. Some hold numbers. These can be integers, decimals, money values, fractions..whatever....numbers. There are other variable types too. But the basic variable holds a value so you can either reuse it over and over again, or manipulate it.

    2. Control Structures. These are used to do things to the values in different ways. Huh? Well...some examples:

    a (while) loop.... you can continuously make the program do something until a condition is met (like when a password is entered correctly).

    a (for) loop....you know when this loop will end, but you want to perform it that many times. So you perform the same block of code a set number of times. Example:

    Let's say I wanted to print a sentence in PHP 10 times...I could do this:
    PHP Code:
    <?php
        
    for ($x=1;$x<=10;$x++) {
              print 
    "This is my sentence.";
        }
    ?>
    How does that work? I'll break it down:

    <?php - this says...hey server...we're starting to write some php code here!

    the "$x=1" - this sets a variable called "x" and sets it's value to 1.
    (variables in php are recognized because they start with a dollar sign)

    $x<=10 - this says....do the code inside the curly braces { and } until the value of "x" equals 10.

    $x++ - this is what's called an operator. Its another thing common to programming languages. It's a method of manipulating the values of variables. In this particular instance, it says that every time the loop finishes and starts again, ++ (add 1) to the value stored in "x" (any time you see "++", it could also be "+1")

    print "This is my sentence."; - I think this is kind of self explanatory

    ?> - this tells the server that we're done with the php code.


    3. Methods & Functions - This is fairly simple, but can be difficult to understand. A method or a function is simply a set of code, that does something. You could write a function that adds 1 to a variable. Example:

    PHP Code:
    <?php
          
    function add_one($x) {
                 
    $x++;
                 return 
    $x;
          }
    ?>
    I'll explain thew new parts.

    add_one($x) - this gives the function a name ("add_one") and then everything in the parenthesis is what the function expects to receive as input. In this case, it is going to accept some value and store it into the variable "$x" .

    $x++; - we discussed this above. It makes the value stored in $x equal whatever it did plus 1. (aka, it increments the value of "x");

    return $x; - somewhere in our code, we made a function call (we told the server that we wanted to run the function). Now a function can (it doesn't have to) return some value back to the part of code that called it. An example:

    PHP Code:
    <?php
        
        $x 
    1;
        
    $y add_one($x);
        print 
    $y;

        function 
    add_one($x) {
            
    $x++;
            return 
    $x;
        }
    ?>
    What's going on? Start at the top.

    $x = 1; - make the variable 'x' store a value of 1

    $y = add_one($x); - make the variable 'y' store the value of whatever the function 'add_one' returns, when it is given the variable '$x' (in this case, the number 1)

    print $y; - this simply makes the server print out the value stored in the variable y. What's that value? well....it's the value returned by function add_one. In this case, it returns the number 2. It accepted the value stored in $x (in this case, the number 1) and then added 1 to it, and then spit the new value back out.




    These are some of the fundamentals. I'd HIGHLY recommend reading through the php manual mentioned above. It's purty good.

    Well, I suggest going through the tutorials at www.cprogramming.com they're fairly simple.

    Start off simple, console programming (as in command prompt console) is the easiest way to get something onto the screen with little knowledge.

    Search google for tutorials, there is a wealth of beginner tutorials out there.
