Why can't you install it via the package manager?

Not really sure what you're getting at here - the compiler translates your human-written code into machine code the computer can understand. An IDE, when used properly, provides lots of helpful shortcuts that make programming far easier.

I wouldn't really recommend starting with batch files, you can end up using gotos and all sorts of nasty things that might get you into bad habits later.

I guess you try online tutorials for programming and maybe start C language. I believe C language can be for beginners like you or maybe try Visual Basic. Either way, if you learn one of these languages, it will not be hard for you to learn another language.

Simply find a language that you are interested in learning.. and start actually learning.. find some e-books or on line tutorials and you will be set. It is honestly not worth wasting time, looking for a good programming language to learn. I started with JAVA then C++ and after learning those languages, every other language was cake.

Since I was last here I have become a more mature person and computer user. I have tried out 4-5+ languages, which confused me and I'm still wondering why I done that.

These days, I mainly focus on using PHP. I had a go at developing some blog software, but unfortunately I stopped on that project (3 days ago) and haven't done much PHP since then. If you have any suggestions about what I should make than feel free to shoot me a PM or post a reply in this thread. One of my biggest issues is choosing what I should make and that is my downfall with programming, so any extra help I can get is more than appreciated.

I'm not sure whether it's against the rules bumping this thread, but I would really like a reply. If it is against the rules than feel free to close this thread, staff.

Read, read, read! I would have never learnt programming if I hadn't read books. As for which programming language, do try C#. It's not hard because you have the autofill which can be the best resource in the world. That's how I learnt, it only took about 2 months as well.

Or, if you're learning from scratch, arguably the worst! If it was taken away could you still code?
