RE: learning programming

You might want to look at http://www.mindview.net/Books/DownloadSites for a
few useful books on C++ and Java.  They are free.  However they assume that
you have seen some C before.

    But let's suppose that I want to learn programming
(perhaps to compile kernels, etc.) - what would be a
good start? Symbolic logic? (Where to get a good
instruction on that one?) C++? ... Slip? What language
is the one most widely used for Linux?
  Thnx, Hrthstn.
