Re: Best web application lang.

How so? I only think my notion of "best" may seem odd because determining the "best" here is impossible. So I must some how define "best" with restrictions or they all may be the "best" in some way or another. I supposed you could use "favorite" inst...

Best web application lang.

What do you think is the best web application language? I know languages can have different uses but lets think of best as being the one that you think is the most used, does the most, etc.

Re: C programming - a good IDE?

Hmm I used vim at the moment for C and Eclipse for JAVA. I know Eclipse does have a C/C++ IDE but I haven't tried. If its as nice the JAVA one that I'm sure it'll be a decent one. Emacs and vim aren't bad, and once you get the hang of the shortcuts in emacs you can get sutff done very fast.

Re: Pumping lemma for regular languages

Re: General Programming Language

I would agree that a good general language and not to complex to dive into would be python. JAVA is also not that hard.
