I've been programming in C++ for a couple of years now. I basically picked it up as my first language for the sake of knowing the "industry standard" for game programming. However, I've been wanting (for a while now) to pick up either Perl, Ruby, or Python. After doing my research I've landed on Python. (but I'm still open to persuasion
) Anyway...I needed a project to get me started. When learning C++ I had the help of my high school's IT guy. He assigned me projects that he thought would help me toward my goal. So he had me write a screen saver that displayed content from the school's RSS feed. The idea that's come to mind is a proxy server that can be privately used by me and my friends at school. We're pretty dedicated gamers and enjoy doing our game-research after finishing all of the assignments in Computer Repair (what a joke...). So, would Python be a good choice for writing this? or would Perl/Ruby be better?
Thanks in advance,
