    Other Programming Languages

    I want to learn a small programming language that I don't already know, preferably one that is easy to have some fun in, I have C/C++ for my real work. (dont know why, i think i just like learning programming languages)

    I already know:
    BASIC
    C
    C++
    Euphoria
    Pascal
    and a few web "non-languages" (HTML, JavaScript, some VBscript etc.)

    Yeah, C++ rules all, unless you want to learn ASM, which is so much harder. I don't think it'll be too much fun to do.

    Yeah, actually I forgot. Python would be pretty good. It is a little easier than C++, and it's pretty fun to use.

    Scheme is small compare http://www.swiss.ai.mit.edu/~jaffer/r4rs_toc.html to the c++ standard or a draft of the c++ standard.

    Blech, my first hour class is VB ...pray for me. I've survived this long, but who knows - In my class People actually try writing programs without declaring variables (even though in VB that works!), try to name thier variables "Some Spaced Out Thing" then complain when it won't work, they don't know what a loop is, they scoff at anything done in DOS (because they're big, bad VB programmers!), They think C is the grade they're getting in 3rd period, they're oblivious to any other language, they're total nerds, they won't stop asking me for help, they HAVE ISSUES!! (but then again, so do I!)......AAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!! *Head Explodes*

    VB.NET is a lot different than VB6. It looks a lot like C/C++ and is now object oriented.

    Meanwhile No it doesn't look more like C/C++ and it's always been fairly object-oriented (the entire purpose of the language; you'd think it could carry it out, eh?)

    VB6 doesn't have inheritance also VB.NET does look a lot more like C/C++ regarding its brand new syntax.

    Yes it does. I have seen VB.NET code samples.
