    Programmer needs recommendation on WHAT programming lang...

    I'm a senior computer science major seeking my BS degree. I'd like to build an interface and most of my programming backround has been using c++. I see some pretty cool interfaces and I'd like to start developing my own. Can you guys recommend me a programming language? I'd like to use one with powerful graphical animation such as button evens flashing or moving etc... thanks in advance.

    Oh yeah, also what books you might recommend.

    You'll get a lot of different opinions here. Search for frontend language or something similar. Here's a thread to get you started: front end

    I wrote Mobile Impact, Mobile Emulator, and Mobile Mouse in VB-6. There are alot of Multimedia components in it and very flexible. It does have some limitations as does everything. There is alot of support and resources for it as well. Look for a book called Learn Visual Basic in 20 some odd days, I cant remember the exact name, but it is extremely easy to learn from.

    i vote vb6 for its simplicity. you can write a massive gui with very little work.

    If you're already comfortable with C++ then stick with it. All those higher level languages may give you fancy plug-in DLLs for playing media and controls and such so you can build it faster, but they will limit you to only what they can do. Of course, all those DLLs you become dependant on are written in C++. You can do quite a lot in VB, .NET, C#, etc. easier, but C++ has no limitations.

    Fortran, Lisp, Asembly, Cobal, pascal

    Delphi!

    Use C++ and build your front end in Linux! Havn't seen a nice linux FE yet. With some cool Multi Screen Support.
