new language

This is a discussion on new language within the C++ Programming forums, part of the General Programming Boards category; I have some Prolog stuff, but I can't find a good resource to learn it from....

    heh - when I first started on C, all I had was a little booklet on the rules of the C language, and a programming book in Fortran! Needless to say, concepts are concepts and it was a decent start. Go figure.
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    Jibberish!! Want a head-start? Here ya go...

    I agree with OneStiffRod in that if you know one you can easily pick up the rest. But I don't believe that C++ is what you need to learn. It truly doesn't matter. It does help to get a taste of both pure procedural and object oriented languages though. After a certain point you will learn languages merely by reading a quick 10 page reference manual.

    Anyways, I just don't see C# taking JAVA's place at all. I just can't see how or why it would. It truly boggles the mind.

    The next big language is going to be Omicron.

    Btw, I cannot really understand why PERL is so popular. Prepending each variable's name with "$" is horrible. I know the language is from the USA, but it is still a very ugly syntax.

    Prolog.....

    I am doing a course on Prolog too (Rule Based Computing). I find it interesting, but difficult too. The compiler that we use, Visual Prolog, is useless. It gives horrible errors, and is really difficult to work on. Is Prolog used in industry, or am I just learning it like that (for a few credits, i.e.). And then, it's so much different from C/C++. Is it really used to simulate Intelligence at a professional level ???

    Reading Stuff

    Try "Programming in Prolog" by Clocksin and Mellish. Or "Programming in Prolog for A.I" by Ivan Bratko.

    I really agree with Sang~Drax. Omicron is the wave of the future.
    Code:
    #include <cmath>
    #include <complex>
    bool euler_flip(bool value)
    {
        return std::pow
        (
            std::complex<float>(std::exp(1.0)), 
            std::complex<float>(0, 1) 
            * std::complex<float>(std::atan(1.0)
            *(1 << (value + 2)))
        ).real() < 0;
    }

    You could always try the link in his signature - Quidquid Omicron dictum sit, altum videtur.

    Wow, I got a lot of diverse languages... I don't think C# will last too long, and I would like to learn ruby (maybe in college)
    Go Java!!!

    IMO javascript is the language of the future.

    Why? Here's some pretty good reasons (in no particular order):
    1. A VERY active user community with lots and lots of freely available modules to suit just about any problem you may be having.
    2. Simple programs can be run directly from the command line without having to create a file with the code in it.
    3. Flexibility in idioms; TMTOWTDI (There's More Than One Way To Do It).
    4. That ugly syntax you refer to provides many useful capabilities, like variable interpolation within a string, simplified array manipulation, etc.
    5. Truly amazing text-processing capabilities (Perl's greatest strength in my opinion).
    6. The Inline module, which allows use of multiple languages in the same code file.
    7. Built-in debugger.

    There's more, but I haven't the mental stamina to go into it. It really is an amazingly easy language to learn. The reasons I give are obviously not exclusive to Perl, but they are some of the things that make it popular. Personally, I use it more for my work than any other language.
