There are lots of different programming languages that you can use in Linux. C and C++ are among the most widely used and supported; you could also check out Python, Perl, Java, Ruby, Tcl/Tk, or any number of others. It all sort of depends on what you want to do with programming.

the closest thing that i've read about was phoenix from janus-software. but i looks like they are no more. you could try kbasic ->

but if you really want something point and click like VB, get something like borland's jbuilder. just my opinion.

I suggest python. Its cross platform, and very easy and quick to develop in.

Thanks again, another thing I KNOW ESS cant run in MDK 9.1 coz its a winmodem, can i ask, i want to buy a new modem what model do you think will work in MAndrake 9.1

megaspaz 10-26-2003 08:29 PM

you can check here for winmodem support.
as far as modems go, i don't use dial up so i don't know. i heard though if you get an external hardware modem, you should have no problem getting it to work in linux.
