I program in SEVERAL, MANY, A-LOT of languages and I am constantly finding my self with no time to finish the project in that lkanguge or this one ect.. should I try to restrict my self to just 3-4 languages?

I dont think we can really answer that, as its a matter of your personal opinion. Being that you dont have time, and that you asked, i'm assuming your not having fun. So my answer, yes.

See the thing is once you have a concept of basic progmatic logic, you can program in any language. It just becomes a matter of having a reference material to help you along with syntax.

"SEVERAL, MANY, A-LOT" will not impress me, mister.

oh wow! another one juuust like meeee. yah I to know so many languages. Html, javascript, qbasic, c, english ect. I'm sooo special. :rolleyes:


dude get a grip. even if you actualy do know the santax for multiple actual programming languages that does no mean you know the language. pick a single language. or at least only a couple. then focus your attention on mastering that language.

Seriously, though - drop pointless languages... C-- would be a start - I can't imagine why you'd use that for any other reason than saying "I know more languages than you, making me the victor."


"I know... English"

Liar :p

I wasnt bragging.. I'm not like many here who try to put others down. But I know many languages (Why would I lie and say i only know 1?) What is the point of replying to this message if you dont plan to help in anyway?
And I use C-- because it makes small exes that are faster than anything you'd ever see, in many cases smaller than what many can do in asm.

I'm glad I'm not the only one that searched the boards for his old posts... The whole "C# is a tool of the Great Satan intended to make Sun give up computers" made me wonder.

How can a tool that automatically generates assembler code from human instructions possibly be faster than proper human-written assembler code?

A modern compiler is optimised to make use of the capabilities of the underlying hardware. It is aware of the cacheing, pipelining, etc. It is frequently the case that a hand written assembler program which follows classical procedural assembler style would be outperformed by a well written high level language program when using a GOOD compiler.

Of course, if the writer of the assembler code is fully conversent with the hardware and all the tricks and techniques that the compiler uses, he/she should be able to write code that performs at least as well, and possibly, if he/she is a true expert, a little better.

I didnt mention the "i know lots and lots" and crap line because i thought i'd get flamed....damn missed opportunity!

And for the record, html doesn't count :P

1)Visual Basic:

msgbox "Hello World"



int main()
cout<<"Hello World";


puts(1,"Hello World")


uses crt;
write('Hello World');


<H1>Hello World</H1>


document.write("Hello World");


PRINT "Hello World"

8)VisualBasic Script:

<script language="vbscript">
msgbox "Hello World"


import java.awt.*;
import java.applet.*;

public class HelloWorld extends Applet
Label Msg;

public void init()
Msg = new Label();
Msg.setText("Hello World");

10)Visual C++:

#include "stdafx.h"

int main()
printf("Hello World\n");
return 0;


WRITE "Hello World"


print "Hello World"

13)Liberty Basic

print "Hello World"

14)Berkeley Logo:

print "Hello print "World


print "Hello World"


print "Hello World!", "\n";


ShowMessage ('Hello World');

PRINT "Hello World"

PRINT "Hello World"

screenput"Hello World";

21)Chipmunk BASIC:
PRINT "Hello World"

22)Johnny's Experimental Language:
PRINT "Hello World"

Label1.Text = "Hello World"

Form() Width:5250 Height:2565 Caption:New Application
CreateCtrl Label(1) Left:0 Top:0 Width:1000 Height:200 Visible:True Caption:Hello World


Pout "Hello World".

AppleSoft Basic

?"Hello world."

Wow thats alot of different ways to say hello world! But yea just cause you know the basic syntax to a language doesn't mean you know the language. I don't think you know a language until you've actually written a useful program in it like an ftp client, a nice text editor etc. Something that someone out there would actually use. Like me I know the C syntax but all my programs are complete garbage and really just practice so that some day maybe I can make that one program that someone will use. So I can say "yea I know C", but do I really? Nope not really because I haven't made a useful program yet. Anyways I've read that once you really "know" a language well you can pick up other languages in a matter 2-3 weeks and start to make useful stuff in it, is this true?

Yes, it is true. The language that actually got me used to programming and allowed me to pick more up was BASEC (BASic Emulation Compiler) its very close to QB in syntax. I learned alo of rules about programming in that language. Also, I dont remeber asking people if they beleived I knew alot of languages. I merely asked if I should restrict myself.

When I was loggin in I typed a 'k' instead of a 'c' so, the above post is me..

When you brag that you "program in SEVERAL, MANY, A-LOT of languages", you should be prepared to back that up.

Back it up? Want proof? First off, saying it in many ways was jsut a light hearted joke (no one seems to getr jokes here..) But i do know several languages (many are BASIC Dialects, I also know Delphi, C--, C and X)

People here have great senses of humor. They only laugh at things that are funny, though.
