    Well, what language are you interested in? GNU gcc is a library of several compilers (g++ for c++, gcj for javac, etc).

    I am not quite sure, I think that c++ is the most common and therefore would probably be my best bet but I am open to suggestions. What language do you think is the best?

    Thanks

    OK, you can quote me as follows

    "Linux is a better Unix than Unix",

    "Knoppix is a better Linux than Linux"

    and

    "C++ is a better C than C",

    "Java is a better C++ then C++"

    So, do the math! As a result, I've switched over to Knoppix + Java for object oriented programming with data structures (the course I teach).

    Why don't you try the following sample "hello world" programs in KNOPPIX and see which you like better, c++ or java.

    //hello.cc editted with kate
    using namespace std;
    #include iostream //<> around iostream won't show in forum
    int main()
    {
    .....cout << "Hello!" << endl;
    .....return 0;
    }

    Compile C++ in shell
    g++ -o hello hello.cc
    Execute C++ in shell
    ./hello

    //Hello.java editted with kate
    public class Hello
    {
    .....public static void main(String[] args)
    .....{
    ..........System.out.println("Hello!");
    .....}
    }

    Translate Java in shell
    javac Hello.java
    Interpret Java in shell
    java Hello

    BTW, "....." means TAB (I can't tab in the forum).

    Enjoy!

    Regards,
    AJG

    I don't want to start a flame war but I'd like to point out that not everyone agrees on that one.

    I'm saying this only in the context of teaching and learning object orientation.

    I found a good site to learn java on called http://www.javaforstudents.co.uk and I highly recomend it for newbies like myself. I found suns tutorials too confusing to navigate.

    hope this can help someone like me.
