If your still in school see if they offer programming classes I think thats the easy way to learn at least for me it was. I took a full year of VB my freshman year of high school and I took a semester of Java this year which was pretty easy but then towards the end of the class the teacher didn't explain something well and I totally got lost and just gave up because I really didn't want to do programming any more and I pulled a C in the class. But if you take a class you can always ask for help and have things explained which is better then any book can do.

Depends on who you know.


Markie is the guy who I go to when I'm confused with programming.


Him and the great guys at Anti-Online.

Graciously recommended from KB, is some muffricken Christian death metal. It is a must hear, it pushes envelopes, explores new ground. Words can't describe just now incredibly awesome this is. Cue the alter smashing, bench flipping, and bible reading while thrashing away at guitars and drums.

I witnessed regional Special Olympics and Challenge Day; there's far more intellect there than there is in internet arguments.

:) I can be useful sometimes!! I'd say avoid VB, mainly because I don't like it at all! I'd say go straight to C with a good tutorial book and lots of patience. I wish I had, I started in BASIC and... it's really quite different to C. I feel you get a much, much better understanding of what's going on with C.

Oh and yeah, int main(void) isn't a preprocessor directive at all as far as I am aware. If you got told it was from a book... please do state the book so we can all avoid it :)

VB/BASIC will give you bad habits. Avoid both.



Avoid COBOL as well. It's evil :ph34r:

BASIC lowers your IQ. I'm living proof of that one :D
