Desktop Programming





rameshbn1
Hi all,

Is there a good, free, simple desktop programming language, with a competent IDE, out there somewhere on the Net?

I've tried out SharpDevelop for C#. I found it OK, but I'm not really into .NET - so what else?

You should try MS Visual Studio Express Editions (free downloadable from microsoft.com). These editions are available for C#, VB.net, C++ (not sure!) and for web development (asp.net).

Quite good IDEs, simple to use and only very few limitations, if you develop just desktop software.

If you want to use Java as programming language, there are also some good programs available, Netbeans (www.netbeans.org), Eclipse (www.eclipse.org) or also JBuilder (www.borland.com).

C++ is one of them, yes. I have C++ Express edition.

If you want it really simple, try RGH PROFAN 6. It's similar to BASIC but more versatile because of its Pascal-like functions. See here to get your first program in 30 minutes. It's freeware, too!

If you want it more advanced I would recommend LCC-Win32 - freeware C, easy to get going. But still a hard language Wink

Why dont you use Python with Tk or wxPython.

The very problem of these free versions is that you only can compile programs for your own computer...

Absolutely false. With MS Visual Studio Express you can compile programs, which can run on every computer with an installed .Net2.0-runtime.

Who told you such a bu****it?
