I know lots of your huge programs are made up with more than 1 language like c++, and perl and I have interest in more than 1 lanauge.
Languages I want to learn or in the process of learning
and for gui something like qt4 or something.
Now I've learned a tad bit on c++ but at the time I find my self with no time to continue on now I got lots of time and after doing some research people say lean the most difficult of your choice first and then onto other languages as you would find a faster learning experience.
Right now I've actually chose perl because its easier to learn and its not so strict and should be faster to learn since I might find my self with no time again.
One of my main goals is to launch a free hosting company and a ad network so I wanted to build my own hosting control panel and I figured perl is an excellent language for that.
Now my biggest concern is somebody told me I'm making a big mistake in learning all these language as I'm going to cause some mass confusion. I plan to learn each language clearly befor moving onto the next.
What is your suggestions?
I really am not sure you need bash scripting if you know Perl. The only advantage of (ba)sh script compared to Perl is lower resource usage, but it is important in resource poor embedded systems.
Though I don't know PHP, it's a sense a derivative of Perl (yeah, I know, I overstretch).
Perl and C++ are quite different languages in their internal ideology. And that's the beauty. Start reading http://hop.perl.plover.com/
to really understand what Perl is.
Qt is written in C++, so you have to learn C++ first. I don't think Qt has anything to do with your "free hosting company" though.
And I don't think your "free hosting company" is a viable option - look up "entry barrier" WRT business. But it's none of my business. Anyway, as they say it Russian, "if while chasing I won't catch, I'll at least warm up".
