Proud Person I am.


I am very proud of myself. Thanks to several people who helped me I have finnaly got a Redhat 9 system running on my old computer(first distro i used). the Graphical interface is nice. Now on to my question(s).

1. What programming languages are there for linux that I can use?

2. Where are some execellent programming sites using languages on linux? I dont want a website I can find on google.com because most of them are not execellent, they are usually pretty crappy, or at least from what I have seen for languages on windows based systems.

3. What programs do I already have installed with RedHat 9? I chose the "Workstation Installation" because I want to learn to program and make software.

Thanks for the info guys ahead of time.

1. perl, eiffel, java, ruby, python, c, c++, fortran, cobol, basic, php, tcl, ml, awk and about 1000 others.

2. plenty around. we're launching programmignquestions.org soon... but i normally just hit google.

3. you'll want to install the developement tools section for c ompilers etc...

i've found that the amount of documentation and support for linux online is lightyears ahead of windows. honestly. throw "programming c", or whatever you're interested in learning into www.google.com/linux and i think you'll be pleasantly surprised. one of the first that came up for me just now was http://docs.linux.cz/programming/c/c_marshall/CE.html which seems to be a great crash-course.


EDIT: a bit more than a crash-course actually

If it exists, changes are there is a linux port somehwere as far as programming languages go.
If there is not a GCC front end for the language, then there is usually a port of a specific compiler out there.

2. Try asking questions on the programming forum here.

3. Should have at least GCC which covers C. It is likely you also have a frontend/compiler for C++, C@, and java there too. Redhat should have a package manager you can check to see what packages got installed to see though.
