    I've used 2.x for the last 7 or so years, I know it like the back of my hand hand; The very features that would make me turn to 3.x (more functional style things built into the language, a better...

    I went through this decision a few months ago. It does mainly depend on your previous experience. If you are new to this sort of thing, then ROR has the advantage of having a lot more tutorials to...

    Lisp + SDL problem

    Here's a change from the usual Java / C++ / Python questions: a Lisp issue.

    Currently I'm working with Lisp and SDL using the Lispbuilder-SDL library. However, I'm having 2 issues, namely:

  4. Re: C: Stack vs Heap. What are they? Why do they exist?

    You are right (but of course, you can put the stack where you like by setting the stack pointer), a stack is internal to most (all?) CPU's but the heap is part of the way that C works.

    Re: is there any point learning emacs or vi?

    I was forced to use VI for a year at college but never really liked it.

    EMACS, on the other hand - well, I didn't like that either at the start, to be honest. But EMACS is the one editor that you...

    Re: Convert number to Binary? in C

    If by "looks more professional" you mean "intent not immediately obvious" then you are right. To me the first one is much better - I can instantly grok what the programmer is doing.

    Re: Python: I just don't get it.

    That Python one is much easier to maintain - I can read the code, whereas that Gambas one just looks like magic, for example:

    Re: PHP Programmer to....Ruby or Python?

    Either are fine, although there may be more python resources.

    I don't think anyone will suggest starting with Basic. Personally, I would learn with Python because it's got lots of libraries to do the hard work for you and a tone of resources on the internet to...

    Your first question is flame-war territory but I would say Python is a *better* language than Java.

    Second, it is better for a programmer to be fluent in more than one language. This is because...

  24. Re: What is the best programming language FOR

    Exactly! They can't run my code until I've written it, so the faster I get it written the sooner they can use it and solve their problem!
