The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

hmmm, pick a language: C, C++, java, python, perl

Those are probably the main/most useful ones.

Search on the net for C tutorials.
C is probably the best place to start out.

check python: clean short code, easy to learn. With numarray module nearly as quick as C++. Object oriented and portable code. You may want to check I guess the best language
for scientific programming. At the end, it depends on what you want to do in order to choose a suitable language.
