Hi this is for serious: Look for Tabea on http://wiki.skolelinux.de...
I tried the search field that leaded to
that gaves an example how to get nice dialogs with Shell script.
Qt3 or Qt4 is similair to Delphi, just that you have C++ instead of
Well, I do know what Qt is. The question was not "which language".
Was my question that missleading? The request was for a *good*
and *simple* programming *environment* with nice *online help*,
*debugging features* etc. -- just the "Turbo Pascal of today"
that gives you immediately success. I think Gambas and Squeak
are good options. I know that there is Boa-Constructor for
Python - may be I have to check whether it is comparable (but
I doubt that).
From a pedagocial point of view I would say: It doesn't matter
*what* programming language you learn first - it does matter that
iyou have enough fun to dive into the world of programming. (Squeak
perfectly seems to fit it.) Once you dived into it you will
have some fun in doing nice shell scripting *later*.
