    Arrow Which script fit me well ?

    Hi, all~

    all my friends knows I am just fond of programming althought not too good at it.

    and some days ago one of my friends advised that maybe I should learn somewhat script for web such as ASP or PHP or CGI or XML or something else. But I really know nothing about it and I think they are much different from what I learned before(Cos I learned just a liitle C++). Now I need all of your advise to figure out those script's features and decide which one fit me best.

    Regards~

    for php, go to http://php.net
    for asp, go to http://microsoft.com and search for it.
    for perl, shoot yourself.

    it mainly depends on what platform the server is running.

    php is the common language for *nix servers, and asp is the default for windows nt/2000/xp servers. perl you shouldn't bother to learn, as it isn't used much anymore

    [edit]
    I know both PHP and ASP, and I personally have no preference either way. I started out with Perl, and dropped it one day later.

    XML is powerfull and will probably very popular in the future, but I don't think it falls in line as a script such as PHP and ASP, though I could be wrong.

    XML isn't a scripting language, it's a data definition standard.

    For scripting learn php which is very close to C or ASP+ which allows you to put C# code on your webpage.

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.

    There are a TON (yes, literaly a ton) of pre-made scripts out there for your using pleasure. Unless you're insitant on actually learning PHP in order to make your guest book, I reccomend just doing a search on google.

    for perl, http://www.perl.com/

    What about jsp? Wouldn't that be closer to C++ syntax then ASP?

    Probably not if you can now put C# in an asp page....

    And anyway....I think you can use JScript in ASP....that's close to C syntax....
