Programming This forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

I typically use vim with syntax highlighting, but you could use eclipse if you want a more full featured IDE. Eclipse also has the benefit of working with a wide range of languages so once you get used to using it you can use it with all the languages you know.

Use Ruby. Easier to learn, cleaner, more fun, and can also improve your sex life. (Okay, I made up that last point.)

If you are using such excuses, programming might well be for you not a good way of spending time.

If you're new to programming, I would suggest a more standard language. I love perl, but I can't imagine it being my first language. Try learning java, or better yet, c/c++ to start with. Once you have a basic understanding of programming concepts, then branch out into other languages.

Vigilandy is, of course, entitled to an opinion, but the OP has given all the indications that he is looking for an easier, not a harder, programming experience. Telling a person who wants to learn Perl to learn Java or C instead is like telling a person who wants to learn to drive a car to learn to drive a dump truck instead.

You can easily learn all basic programming concepts in Ruby, without most of the frustrations of learning Java or C/C++. Perl can be learned fairly quickly... however the Object Oriented Programming (OOP) syntax of Perl is atrocious, which will make it difficult for the cs24 to learn one of the most valuable paradigms of modern programming. (Perl was my first language, BTW.)

I like perl, ruby, and php as first languages. Far easier than learning C/C++/Java and far more productive than learning basic.

I choose the Perl to start my job.I'm just coding by the "Vim", I want to code in the terminal ,so I don't think it is conformable by some IDE in the GUI .but I still want an IDE which can give me some promote when I use the function or modular. I would like the IDE can promote what options or variable the function will have .
