Best Environment / Languages for a newbie
Hi, my name is Brian and this is my first time posting. I have been programming for several years now, but it has been solely on the Macintosh platform. I have never programmed for a Windows box and would like to start playing around just for the learning experience of it. I would really like to start playing around with processes, I can't be really specific now because I just want to see what I can do, what can be done. With that in mind,
1. What language would be best. I am thinking C. I have previous experience with C++, Java, and other assorted languages, but I am thinking when dealing with processes this may be the best language?
2. What is the best environment? Eclipse, Codewarrior? I am used to Xcode on the Mac.
3. Can anyone point me to tutorials on interacting with processes. Such as getting a list of active processes from the kernel or killing, spawning, communicating with processes, etc. Anything that can be done.
Thanks in advance. I appreciate it.
