A bit confused here, you are making a program and you want ideas for new features no? Why are you asking about other programming languages, and do you mean application or web programming?

In any case, the website www.thefreecountry.com can help you with reveiws, articles, links and downloads in a lot of different languages. My language recommendation would be C, C++, Java and/or Assembler. This hit list is not something that you'll learn over night, but working on it a little at a time can make your life a lot easier later, IMHO.

Ived gotte neverything out of the way exept "making an exact copy"it will getthrought the part that it copies the files off the floppy disk and into a temp folder,but when it runs the next line of code wich is supposed to open another prgram,it just stops.The Script is just a dos batch file

COPY A:

C:\disksuite\suite\temp


C:\disksuite\suite\COP.exe


When it is supposed to run the program it says bad command or filename,ived cheked it over and over agian and it still wont budge!!!
