I want to thank everyone for their answers in this thread, you have all been very helpful. Now that you mention security, that leads me to another question - are there any good books on writing secure programs? I would guess that would be a good thing to think about from the start, as to learn good practices? Another thing - I have been thinking about also learning Python, for instance for interacting with GTK, and for writing things that might be hard to do in C. Would that be a good choice, or should I look at any other languages before I start? Thanks again, Petter -- "I'm ionized" "Are you sure?" "I'm positive."
