Re: What language do you mostly program in?
Matt M Account Info

Um, ah, Well, they need a "multiple" option but anyway--

1st - TI 83+SE Basic
2nd - Windows Batch (I know a little)
3rd - C++ (I'm taking a class at school)
4th - TI 84+SE Basic

By the way - they left off one of the ones that I have heard of that my school used up to last year (now C++):

Pascel

(I think that's how it's spelled)

Anyhow...

Oops, I forgot the very first one I learned - HTML

I wrote my entire homepage in Notepad with HTML!!

No. I was fairly good a C++ before I even took a look at HTML. (I still don't know much of it.)

Pascal.
Named after Blaise P. who invented the first programmable calculator.

Sorry, the Pascaline was definitely not programmable.

And I've heard that Leibnitz supposedly independently developed an almost identical calculator a few months before. Whether this is true or not, it didn't become quite as famous as the Pascaline.

Depends on your definition of programmable I suppose. That's what my World History text book called it.

I don't get why people seem to have forgotten about Pascal. It is a nice language -- easy to learn, much easier to read than C++.

And good lord, it's still used... Actually, Pascal is a very popular language for writing compilers.

Yup--I think Dev-C++ was written in Delphi (Pascal with object-oriented code).

I said PHP...that's what I *want* to use the most, even if it isn't to that spot yet.

Arguably, it's possible I've used QuickBasic, VB6, or VB.NET more...I used QBasic (and QuickBasic...they are actually different, sorta like the difference between VB5 and VB6) in the old days...then, in high school, I had a programming class where they taught us QBasic first, then VB6. I used VB6 more then (got a free copy from my teacher), and migrated to VB.NET when they had that deal to get it for free (VB@ the Movies), but still use VB6 when I want to make stuff not dependent on an immense framework of useless stuff...

As far as TIs, I only use an 89 regularly, but I can do Basic in that...I'm a bit rusty, though...don't get to work with it as much as I used to. I've thought about learning C for it, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

I haven't done much in the way of shell/batch scripting, but it's not like there's much to learn there....I've thought about learning Perl and Python, I actually have a Perl book (only the web functions of it, though)...

But PHP easily reigns in my world. Unlike Perl, Python, and the like, it was *made* for the web. But, it can do programming for the desktop environment too...and not just on the command-line! Thanks to PHP-GTK, it's possible to program a complete, cross-platform GUI program using one of the best web-based languages ever made...If only it was ported to the TI-89...oh, well, just gotta wait for the Quonos to come out.

Alrighty, I'm done. You can now stop pretending to read this.

Python does good croos-platform GUI stuff and so does TCL.

Yes, it does...I haven't had any personal experience with it, though. I haven't worked too much with Python, although I hope to in the future.

It's easy to read, compared to Java and C. Here's a program that places a peice of text in a GUI window:
from Tkinter import *
root = Tk()
app = Frame(root)
app.grid()
c = Canvas(app)
c.grid()
def thing(event):
t = c.create_text(app, text = "Python Rocks"
c.bind("<Button-1>", thing)
root.mainloop()

Simple, huh?

Oops. Here's the fixed code:

from Tkinter import *
root = Tk()
app = Frame(root)
app.grid()
c = Canvas(app)
c.grid()

def thing(event):
t = c.create_text(app, text = "Python Rocks")
t.place(event.x, event.y)

c.bind("<Button-1>", thing)
root.mainloop()

OK, for those who don't know, python code blocks are designated by indenting, instead of by '{...}' or 'begin...end'. Unfortunately, browsers cut out the repeated spaces, thus making python code hard to post here.

By INDENTING? Seriously? I wouldn't like that-- I only indent if 1) something in my IDE does it for me, or 2) if I'm making a huge program with a LOT of nested if/for/while/etc.

uhh... perhaps my eyes are failing me... did you just say that you don't INDENT!?!?! Doesn't that KILL the legibility of your code!?!?

Yes, it does, that is why I use an IDE when progamming, so that I don't have to worry about it. Except with my webpage, because it is simple to space over four spaces before I make a new paragraph.

I use an IDE for big projects. However, for most quick jobs I just use a standard text editor. Of course, the standard text editors that come with KDE support stuff like automatic code indenting and syntax highlighting. (I don't know HOW I survived with windows.)

That can be a good thing if you don't want people stealing your code ;-)

Javascript code, anyway. Since all most people do is say, "Hey, that's a cool script. I want the code." Then they view source, and if everything's jumbled up like that, it might be harder for them to pick out what code they need and what code they don't.

If you don't want people reading your code for most compiled languages... then don't submit the source. But this is nice for JS. (for me, anyway)

Well, not that much. I just remember how many brackets I'm out and I usually don't run into problems. I just don't like looking at my code and seeing part of it over on the left side of teh screen and part of it way over on the right. If I have an IDE that will handle the indentation for me, then I'll use it, but otherwise, I don't. And since I started with JS, using Notepad (which doesn't handle stuff like that for me), I got into a habit of not using indentation. But hey, it saves a LOT of time when you don't indent. I swear, my programming teacher hates me for it. lol

<SCRIPT>
for(var i=0;i<4;i++){ for(var j=0;j<20;j++){ document.write(j+") I like to write my code all on one line. ");} document.write("-- "+i+"<BR>"); }/*yay*/
</SCRIPT>
