Pthon 2.3


In Windows when you write an application with Visual Basic, it gives you a GUI, a place to design what it looks like, a place for code .... etc.I am very interested in learning to program in other languages(If you can even consider Visual Basic a language, lol)so I downloaded Python 2.3. All it looks like to me at the moment is a command line. Are there any basics to get started becaus I am totally used to VB still. Thanks.

well i don't program with python but maybe you can look into Tkinter ...
as quoted from the link.
Quote:
Tkinter is not the only GUI for Python. It is however the most commonly used one, and almost the only one that is portable between Unix, Mac and Windows.
this page here may lead you in another direction cause there seems to be a bit of info on this site...i noticed a couple more links to some frontends ....


p.s. if you still wanna do you VB, then you can look at Phoenix

what do you mean?
like are you just looking for something new to learn, or are you wanting to do something specific?
if your just asking this as a general question, then the answer is totally up to you...

well your basically only going to get personal preferences, rather than recommendations, cause why would they recommend it right
anyways i will recommend C / C++ and will give you some links to start with ...
http://www.cprogramming.com/
http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/
http://www.strath.ac.uk/IT/Docs/Ccourse/
http://www.oualline.com/style/index.html
http://www.soldierx.com/books/Teach Yourself C++ in 21 Days/htm/fm.htm

your going to have to copy and paste that last link, as there is spaces in it, and it won't display correctly that is, if you are interested in it

If you want to do gui coding then QTDesigner and Glade are two toolkits that are right up your alley. QT is mainly for C++ although other people have created bindings for other languages. Glade is for GTK+ that supports C and C++ and there are bindings for others as well.
