ok so I want to learn some programing


I have command line program for my slide scanner (Nikon Coolscan LS-10)
that works well enough, but I'd like a gui front end for it. What I'd like it to do is allow me to select a film type, do a preview, and send the output to the GIMP.
Is there any good "Dick and Jane" level tutorials , books/ebook out there for Tcl? Or would some other language be better?

I recommend that you use C and use Gtk+ for the GUI. here is a tutorial for Gtk+:

I think it will be better if you use Java instead, otherwise go for gtkmm as it is C++. It is much easier to create sftware if you use the OOPS approach.

"the OOPS approach."

Oops is about right... My C++ "Hello World" program needed to be debugged before it would compile. Know where I can get a keyboard that knows what I want to type instead of what I actually type?

In my opinion; if you're experienced with C++, try wxWindows, it's a whole cross-platform GUI Toolkit, it is easy, and completely logical.

I'm experinced with Python and Tkinter, but in my opinion wxPython (wxPython is just a python module that wraps around the wxWindows C++ library) is great. It's pretty easy to learn (Even though there are only a few tutorials available (Well for wxPython.. I heard the wxWindows documentation is wide.) It's easy to catch on with.)
