    DNAunion: I program a lot in Visual FoxPro 6. I have also programmed in C/C++, Java, Visual Basic (and earlier forms, such as Quick Basic, QBasic, and GW Basic), COBOL, RPG, and assembly, as well as having read up some on PHP.

    Hi Alenci

    I've had commercial experience in RBasic, VBasic, C/C++, Pascal, Delphi, Perl, Java - oh and HTML - if u call that programming :)

    I've studied COBOL, Modula 2, Prolog and assembly but have never written anything commercially yet in them.

    Regards,
    Bryan

    I've done HTML, and I remember just small bits of Turbo Pascal and C++.

    I'm terrible at it (programming in general) though. :(

    I have programmed in about several variants of BASIC (including VB, COMAL, BBC Basic, and when my Amiga still worked, BlitzBasic and Amos), Java, Pascal (and Delphi), Assembly, scripting in Perl, PHP and Javascript. And I've done HTML and a couple of flavours of SQL if you'd count them.

    C, sh, perl. I do *NOT* do C++; I can, a bit, but it's a loathesome monstrosity, and should be taken out and shot. C is a much better language.

    As of Tuesday, I started learning Java. My first program, a fractal editor and viewer, is now reasonably usable, but only works on 1.4 JRE's.

    I can read and write most scripting languages a little, but my strongest are perl and sh. C is sort of my default native language, although I do a lot more in perl these days, just for string handling.

    I am liking Java, although the lack of an easy way to make self-executing Java executables on Unix is annoying.

    I have also done some stuff in Icon. I *love* that language.

    I majored in programming, although I now mainly do web/graphics design.

    Past experience with: Basic (lots of different versions on various platforms), Assembly, Pascal, COBOL, C/C++, Java, Visual Basic

    Currently, I tend to use (for web development): PHP, HTML (not really a programming language), JavaScript, VBScript (for ASP pages), Perl

    What I should learn for the future: ColdFusion, Visual Studio .NET (mainly C#, Microsoft's answer to Java)

    Java is worth learning, even if you don't use it for everything. I'm utterly unimpressed with C#.

    I think C++ was an experiment which failed. Java is a good C-like language which supports OO. C++ is neither a good C-like language nor a good OO language.

    If you can do pascal, it's worth picking up some of the more modern languages. Java and C are both good choices. C is smaller, but perhaps more error-prone.

    Perl would be nice if MY WEBSERVER SUPPORTED IT! :cry: I need a free server on the net for webspace that will let me do pearl so I can run a message board for the band i'm in.&nbsp; :mad: communists at adelphia won't let me run the webserver on my linux&nbsp;box at my house.&nbsp; Oh well, what can&nbsp;one do?

    history in programming:

    BASIC (3 months)

    HTML (going on a couple years)

    Perl (two days)

    c++ (two days, then the compiler went outta whack along with my harddrive, had to reformat. It's a shame since BCB 5&nbsp;is such a nice compiler/editor)

    Played about with BASIC and learned COMAL years ago, did nothing for years for want of a computer - any computer!, just started learning C++.

    Have also programmed spreadsheet macros (but then that's not quite what you'd call real programming, LOL)

    DNAUnion: Writing spreadsheet macros is real programming if you are using VBA, are actually writing the code (instead of creating a macro and copying the self-generated code and using it), and your code uses the typical programming constructs (iteration, conditional branching, etc.).

    And writing spreadsheet macros is a lot more real programming than creating a web page in HTML is.
