I know you said not BASIC. But Visual Basic is in my opinion, one of the fastest RADL. Next would probley be Delphi aka Kylix.

By the way for an example of my first statement. I wrote a program that creates custom static web pages from an Access Database, with vbscript as a built in scripting language in about 2 weeks working on it about 4 hours a day for a total of 10 days. That includes a built in web browser for viewing the pages, html syntax highlighting (that was a pain in vb), and being able to parse the SQL statements.

Ok, now I'm noticing my reputation around here has fallen under zero.
My plan: quit surfing this forum for a while, then come again with new sign, new alias, new distro and more experience.
Actually, I'm going to sign of now.

Bye.

Of course Assembler is the fastest to work, but not to write
I agree with Mara
My answer is: C++/C
These languages IMHO are the best!

If you are writing a domain specific business solution than languages supported by a middleware framework (A class hierarchy and virtual machine implemented in a system language (C or C++)) are certainly the best choice. For example, Java and .net.

If you are building a system, than the best results are achieved through C/C++ and Assembler.

If you want to interface with servers, your shell, and use platform or architecture specific windows programming, than there are a host of langauges and libraries that you can use such as Gtk+, QT, perl, python, etc.

When you use some languages you are really using tools because you are leveraging systems implemented in other language in order to support a domain, of high level logic and RAD solution development environment. Other system languages are lightweight because they are used to build tools and require direct use of the system inteface.

In the future distributed computing will allow middleware to intelligently compile code, therefore raw speed will be supplanted by artificial intelligence.

Professors might debate C++ and Java through comparisons only because the virtual machine uses a virtual kernel and a virtual user mode to process byte code. A user mode process (virtual or not) is less expensive than a kernel process. The fact is that current implementations of virtual machines are being held back by vendor conflict of interest. Instead of working together, they are working to destroy each other. This is more reason why I believe open source projects hold the most promise to computer science research and development.

.NET is about six months away from a workable Linux solution.

There are compilers which can handle many of the packages in the Common Language Runtime available in the Mono project but it's not complete. There are now free IDEs for Windows systems(written in C#), so a linux one may not be far off (in fact we could use the same IDE as for Windows).

Want to see a Linux app that uses .NET? Try amsn .

Some people are purists about this. Personally I don't care. I want something that works and is quick easy to code and works on all platforms. Java is good but there are inconsistencies in the Java specification (think overloading of Strings and assignment for example).

C (not really C++) is the original computer language and still one of the best, I think.

My ten pence.

Guys, my classmate tells me that VB is better then C\C++ in all cases !!!!!
I've tried to make him change his mind, but nothing works.... He is very stubborn fellow
So guys can you link me to a good page where advantages and disadvantages of both languages are shown, or provide some info here!
I would be very glad to hear some replies!!!
thnx

Maybe write a simple program in both, compile them and compare their size, how fast they run etc...
