Visual Basic will be too easy if your going to get down with C++ :tazz:

You should do something like Java or C#. Since they are similar and relativly as hard.

c# and java are quite hard, especially for beginners, cause you need to know all the objects concepts.
i think, that a good language to start with could be a procedural language, such as c or pascal.

c is quite hard because of all the pointor stuff, but once you know it, it will be really useful.
pascal has been created for students lessons (a programming teacher created it) but, now, it's really old and not really used anymore (except in delphi, but we could discuss centuries about relations between pascal & delphi).

And another solution for you, could be ... web oriented languages such as php. you know html you said ? ok, so try to implement dynamical websites ...

Visual Basic is completely different from C, so that is not a good idea.

Start with C, C++ and C# are just add-ons and they will be fairly easy.

Dev-Cpp (put it in google) is a very good program for writing stuff in C, C++ and so on. I used it once too and was very impressed.

OK!
I AM CURRENTLY READING C++ TUTORIALS, and I must get a compiler, anyone have any suggestions for a Free, and at least half decent quality compiler?
Borland was suggested to me, but I dont really like Borland....
What about Cygwin? :)

But the WHAT I REALLY NEED TO KNOW IS THAT, I WANT TO GET A C++ TUTORIAL BOOK....
I PERFER A BOOK THAT TEACHES C++ AND HOW TO MAKE GAMES WITH IT!
THANKS GUYS.... :tazz:

Dev-Cpp definitely, it comes with loads of plugins and add-ons. Have a look at this site.

Gosh, be happy. If you get helped in programming in C, be grateful. :) .

And with what exactly do you need help? Dev-Cpp has few vital functions to mention. Just ask. :tazz:

/*Note to the User and or the Programmer who is reading this: Please do
Not copy from me without asking. ~Thank You*/
/*Copy Righted By the Law Of Canada*/
//Program:
#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int main ()
{
//Declaring The Variables And Strings:
int namename;
int year;
int age;
string mystring;

//Introduction For The User:
cout << "Hello! This program is made by Adittya Akash. My name is Shift01\n";
cout << "My creater, Adittya Akash has an email: [email protected]";
cout << "Please feel free to ask my creater any question about me, Shift01, or anything else, just email him!";
cout << "Now that you know who I am and who my creater is, let's continue...";

//Conversation Using The Variables and Strings declared above:
//Number:
cout << "SO...What is your favorite number?\n";
cin >> namename;
cin.ignore ();
cout << "Really?!?! The number "<< namename <<"\n";
cout << "Is the best number in the net :P";
//Year:
cout << "Ok. Do you know what year it is?";
cin >> year;
cin.ignore ();
cout << "OH yeah I knew that... Ofcourse it is the year " << year << "\n";
cout << "How could I forget....";
//Age:
cout << "What is your age?";
cin >> age;
cin.ignore () ;
cout << "You are " << age << "\n";
cout << "I will remember that";
cout << "Well, my creater is 13";
//The String thing:
cout << "One more thing, what is your name?";
cin >> mystring;
cin.ignore () ;
cout << " I love the name " << mystring << "\n";
//End
cout << "Oh my! Look at what time it is... I must leave! Good Bye";
cout << "SHIFT HAS LEFT THE CONVERSATION";
cout << "PLEASE EMAIL [email protected] TO LEARN HOW TO MAKE THIS PROGRAM";
cout << "GOOD BYE. . .";
cin.get ();
}[/quote]

Open your project, click menu: Execute -> Compile. Have a look at your folder, there will be a new exe file
