    You're looking for a free JS slave?

    1) If you're looking for free coding, look elsewhere.
    2) If you're looking for free help with your code, ask specific questions.
    3) If you're looking for paid coding, post in the Web Projects section or use PM.

    You're looking for a free JS slave?
    Ok, so I am pretty dang new to coding in JS (I am used to C++) and I am not quite sure what a "slave" is. I was looking for a program to write my java in (for C++ I use Ultimate++ IDE). I need it to be free and be simple to manuver/manipulate like I said before. Is that what I use a slave for? If so, we can I download one?

    Ah ok, when you said "writer" I thought you were looking for a person to write code for you.

    I use Helios' Textpad for all my coding (php,asp,js,xhtml,etc) but there are plenty of good text editors out there. This thread should help: What tools do you use for developing?

    You should be aware that Java and Javascript are entirely different programming languages, in spite of the confusingly similar names.

    Like I said, I am completely new to JavaScript programming, so I will probably get some of the terminology wrong. I do appreciate your correction, though, and now I will hopefully never make that mistake again.

    I think it might be more than terminology in this case, you mentioned C++ and Ultimate++ - both are server-side scripts. I think you might actually be looking for Java not Javascript.

    For web-based applications Java/JSP is the semi-equivalent to ASP and C++, Javascript is totally different. It runs on the client's computer and interacts directly with the webpage instance during runtime.

    I'm confused... I was never looking to do anything Web based. I was only looking for a good software writing language. I was informed that JS was one of the languages, along with C, C++, and many more. Was I misinformed? If so, can I please be correctly informed and pushed in the right direction?

    I want to make software. Not webpages or anything related to the Internet.
    Please help!

    codingforums.com is mainly focused on languages that work with websites and web applications. I'd suggest another site for help with non web-oriented programming. Javascript is entirely browser interpreted and it's main use is for websites. You're almost definitely looking for Java not Javascript - which is still usually used for internet applications, content management systems, etc.

    That said, I'm sure if you ask your original question in the Java section of this site, you'll find some helpful people.

    And I usually use Textpad to write and Eclipse to compile my Java, if that helps.
