Anyone have a free programin language that has some good tutorials, and a free compiler? It has to be powerful yet not too confusing. I have tried C++, way too confusing. I never even got to printing graphics. I know php and html, please help me.

If you can't understand C++, chances are you're not going to understand any other languages either. All programming languages have the same basic concepts, so if you're not understanding one, you won't understand another. Keep trying--it's not that hard. Also, www.cplusplus.com has some great tutorials, if I recall.

Not that hard for a twelve year old? I do understand some languages, the ones that make sence. Basic and php and html and actionscript. Not C++ though, with the stupid dll's and ect.

Err... you don't even have to use Dlls. Walnut's right if you don't understand C/C++ your not likely to understand many other worthwhile languages either.

Nah, Im not a begginer. I looked at some blitzmax code and its like nothing I had ever seen before. At least C++ relates to php, which is the language I am good in.

What are trying to do? Web sites? Games? What?

If you want to try games, trying using BYOND's Dream Maker. While it's pretty limited at the moment. (only version 3.5 beta 5), it's pretty easy to learn for beginners and is based off of C++, but much simpler. Thta's what I'm currently using to create games (The Elemental Stone), and it's all do it yourself coding, spriting, etc, like C++, python, etc.

If you decide to try this, add me to your MSN and I can teach your what I know, as well as put you on the right track with some decent tutorials and libraries.

Nah, I decided to use C++. Im trying to do web based stuff, such as loading a page from php to refresh a database without having to open my browser. I think C++ can do that.

DirectX is just an libary to do graphical programs, you dont have to use it though. I think what MasterGohan Zero meant was learn the basics of C++ before using libarys like that.

No, I want to have a C++ thing that refreshes a page, maybe able to fill in an html form. I know php fine, I want to right a php script that changes values in my database daily and run a .exe to refresh the page daily.

Wouldn't it be better to use Java for an internet thing like that?

If you are just looking for something to post data on a site try cURL and just make a batch script.
