turing is not tecaly even a real progaming languge Confused b/c it covers turing in to a c or c++ progame then compiles it i think.

so VB is far more powerfull over turing. alougth truing wroks on more placfourms witch is scary. (well not the compiled verson or the turing code but there is turing for mac)

I am sorry that not everyone in the world knows as much as you do Homer. I am trying to figure out whether to waste my time with this language. You don't have to go on some power trip almighty VB mod.

even tho VB is more powerful it doesnt always matter if ur a n00b, then ask urself, would i be more comfortable typing code, or would i be more comfortable with a lot of clicking to change settings of elements of my code, if u like option one go with turing, and option 2 go with VB, laaaaaaaaaaay (someone answer my question in turing help called "Crosshair over mouse") thx

Skizzarz - maybe you should actually try coding in VB first before you compare it to anything else Confused

You don't click and modify settings. You just have the ability to visually design your GUI form before you code it. But you dont even have to do that. In the project I was working on last year (school ISP type of thing) I was dynamically creating form elements based on user criteria on a blank form.

VB just gives you the tools for rapid application development.

Dan, I don't think Turing uses C as an intermediate anymore (which is why you saw a LOSS of features in the recent big upgrade). I am not 100% on this.
Kuntzy, The way to avoid people jumping all over you is to give some context. For Example

"Hay guz,
I'm like kinda n00b and was lookn' at learnnn to proprm. My sk00l uzes VB an Toorn'. I was hopin to 1 day becom a 1337 h4x0r, which one should I start with. Ohh I'm also very lazy and want to get 100% on my ISU. Thanks, I Love you guys, Kuntzy"


Something like this would let us know where you are comming from to better answer your question.

I started off being serious. It is VERY helpful if you give some context to your questions, then I just couldn't help myself. It was meant in good fun, so I hope it was taken that way.

Homer I am sorry if you do not feel that this was a valid post. I have nothing against you, but this is a 'help forum' and a believe that, this is where you ask questions. And as for the spam scheme, I could care less about the number of bits I have, it not like my life long dream is to have 1000 bits or sumthing.

And I asked this question, becuase as i know VB is a quick language, but that does not mean that it is a powerful one. Also as for turing ... Basic was a language that was used to help people learn programming and look what it grew to become, and has spawned!

unlike basic, turing does now have its own compiler... it is build around c++ compiler Rolling Eyes
