    I have no questions, as you have covered everything I wanted to know.
    But I want to mention, that since I last saw this, it has come along and been improved so well.

    I really want to thank you for the time and effort put into this.
    I am going to be learning to code soon and this really will help me, THANK YOU!

    P.S It's below not bellow.


    The problem with most of us is that we would rather be ruined by praise than saved by criticism.

    Really, there's no need to thank me, I merely saw a problem and tried to fix it. The sheer number of views is thank you enough for me, anyways. I wrote this to be read and that's exactly what has happened. I'll go through and fix the grammatical/spelling errors again, but you know what I mean

    Do you mean the Compiler, IDE, or the language itself? From what I'm aware, all should work fine, though if you run into troubles just give some details on the matter and I'll look into it.

    Agreed, these are one of the better sticky threads in my opinion.

    If you only know the basics then you can improve.

Now I can't exactly explain how to program, because it varies from each language. Though once you learn one, you'll be pretty much set in any other. What will I teach you? The basics, as the title says.

    Vocabulary


    What's the best place to start?


    Where can I go to learn more?


    Java (Downloads)


    Java (Basic Program)


    C++ (Downloads)


    C++ (Basic Program)

    Malbolge


    From here, I can only wish you luck. If you've gone over each subject, you should be set and ready to begin your first program! Which I would teach you, but there's way too many different and diverse languages to even just explain the basics of each.

    Any other questions? Feel free to ask down bellow and I'm sure it'll be answered (Whether it be by me or another).

    Good luck!
    This makes absolutely no sence to me it's not you it's me can you find a super easy way? Because I have no idea what your talking about

    Yeah, reading through this now I see a ton of mistakes and a lot of indirect instructions. Maybe when I have some free time I'll start working on re-writing it, possibly might redo it from scratch. But right now, I really don't have time to go indepth in anything, but I can direct you to a place that'll teach you everything you needa' know- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCJb...H1njbqV-D5HqKw - This guy is a real genius when it comes to coding and should answer all your questions, just search around in his playlists.

    I honestly never heard of REALbasic or BASIC, any links to where I can read up about it?

    Suprised you never heard of BASIC, it was really popular. It stands for Beginners All-Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/BASIC

    But that's old. The newer version of it is called REALbasic, aka Xojo, and isn't THAT popular, but can be useful. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Xojo http://www.xojo.com/

    Just realized that this thread is over a year old with almost 4.6k views. I think it's time to add on a bit more, haha.

    Really late correction of my own post, Xojo is an IDE for realBASIC. Not sure what I was thinking there.

    Well there are alot of things here that needs to be fixed

    Netbeans Code::Blocks Eclipse etc are Integrated Development Environments (IDE) Not compilers.
    Compilers are G++ GCC and MS VC Compiler (Dont know anything about microsoft compilers doe)
    HTML cant be compiled because its a markup language. A web browser just parses the text into something useful not compile it

    And PS Brainf*** is the best time waster IMO (well who would use a language that only uses + . [ ] - < > etc and no text?
    Oh and one interesting fact is its compiler is only 1mb large (The goal for this language is to create the smallest compiler)

    Oh if your talking about what i said that Netbeans isnt a compiler
    It bundles a compiler for Java.
    You need MinGW or the MS Compiler for C++. (Netbeans + MinGW is the best combo IMO)

    Working on an updated guide- expect a huge change to the thread within a week or two (More languages, better vocab, new layout, redux of current languages, ext ext)

    If you have anything specific you'd like to see, please let me know before I update it, it'll make things easier- and this is really all for you guys, so don't be afraid to ask or suggest ANYTHING!

    You either log in as the posters account, or you aren't the poster. There is no such thing as "lazy" to log into a different account.
