Default So... what do you guys know about programming?

I wanna make a little program to do some repetative calcs for me. I know I don't want it console so I'm going to need a "compiler"?

Basically, I know TI-BASIC, HTML, Javascript, and mIRC scripting. I want some sort of language and free program to make windows programs easily. I'm tired of running the bloated MS Works Spreadsheet on this p2 450.

I tried learning C and C++ earlier this week, Those suck. Dr.Jay keeps telling me Visual Basic, but there'* no free programs for that.

Someone please help this idiot.

Sorry man, i took programming in C and for got it on purpose. I just hate it. I'm learning MATLAB now and it'* alot like C with while loops and such but I hate it too. But it does help out when your trying to model mechanical systems...

Visual Basics would be the best way to go.. go on mIRC and see if you can find it. i use to use VB long time ago.. i loved it!! but i never got back into it....

there is a java editor called Eclipse located at www.eclipse.org that is free. it is a JAVA developement environment with some useful tools for the novice java developer. Plus there is extensive tutorials on it. The only thing it doesn't have is a drag and drop form creator. but you can still program graphical user interfaces manually. I use this in school for my classes.

Gonna check out this eclipse thing now that I bought XP Pro, It doesn't work on ME, or at least it didn't for me.
