Which is a better beginner's language
Out of the two choices provided which do you think is the better language for a person with no prior knowledge or experience to start with.
For my english class we have to write an agruementive essay and I thinking about doing it on this topic.
I would like to know what you all think and more specfically why you think that.
Granted some of you might feel some other language is better the both of these but I'm not addressing that in the paper. Also granted is that the results will be highly biased but thats good for me as it serves my purposes.
Edit: Clarification: C is plain ordinary C. Not C++ or C# or some_whacked_out_verion_of_C
