    You just asked a loaded question. It would be better to state a specific goal such as: build a website, create games, become a programmer, write a MS-Word Macro, etc...

    There are many computer languages for many situations: pascal, C, C++, cobol, JCL, Basic, Pearl, SQL, Visual Basic, Java, Fortran...etc.

    When I went to college, pascal was used as a learning tool but it&#39;s not used in the real world. C is a good language to start with and will help you if you decide to learn C++, Visual C, etc. I do not recommend learning an object oriented or visual language as your first language (some may disagree). Languages like Visual Basic does not mean it&#39;s a simple language. To date, I have learn Pascal, C, C++, Visual C, Basic, Visual Basic, COBOL, Fortran, JCL, IMS, Telon, SQL, DB2, just to name a few.

    "Altering existing programs" is not as simple as it sounds. If you have the source code, it would be pretty easy. But if you don&#39;t, that&#39;s hacker territory or at least a few years of serious programming experience. Source codes and compiled code are very different things. This will only make sense if you understand what a compiler does.

    Like I said, give a specific goal and I&#39;m sure someone can point you towards the right direction.

    I think that c will do to start such as you speak of it to begin with
    Where do i get an e-book with this?

    thanx 4 the info


    ps:I want to know what is the source code

    You&#39;re going to find out that C ebooks are harder to find than C++. Here&#39;s some C++ ebooks: http://klboard.ath.cx/index.php?showtopic=31855.

    My advice is go to a bookstore or amazon.com and look at the selections available and read the customer response to the book. You&#39;ll find most programming books will clearly state what credentials are required to study.

    BTW, source code is code written by the programmer in a specifec programming language. The compiler converts the source code into a format the computer understands (binary and hex).

    You should try some of the second hand shops Mac. You find a lot of old computer books in them. &#39;C&#39; can prove difficult for some people just learning. Pascal is a better introductory language and is generally used as a precursor to &#39;C&#39; in some colleges.
