    Which Language Next

    HI FOLKS,
    I ALREADY HAVE A GOOD KNOWLEDGE OF C (POINTERS,DATA STRUCTURES,LINUX PROGRAMMING AND UNIX NETWORK PROGRAMMING) AND C++..I FELT IT WAS TIME THAT I TRIED A NEW LANGUAGE..BUT I AM IN DOUBT WHETHER TO START WITH JAVA OR VC++..I KNOW JAVA IS PLATFORM INDEPENDENT AND THAT IT IS THE LANGUAGE OF THE NET..BUT WILL IT BE REPLACED BY C#..FURTHER IF I GO TO STUDY VC++,THOUGH APPEALING, I WILL BE STUCK UP WITH ONE PLATFORM,WINDOWS..
    I COULD SURE USE A FEW TIPS AND GUIDANCE FROM EVERYONE HERE..

    WITH REGARDS

    Perl is a great language, very robust and you can do many things with it,as an example - here's bit of code that would take all the files in a directory and change them to lower case (useful if your moving from IIS to apache, but there's a hidden point here as well ;-)

    #!/usr/bin/perl
    foreach(<*>) {
    $file1 = $_;
    $file2 = lc($file1);
    system("mv $file1 $file2");
    }

    Just learn vc++ and assembler and then will be the right time for you to make a new OS.
    If God had intended
    Man to program,
    we would be born
    with serial I/O ports.

    i also recommend perl, and assembly i have heard is also good,
    i also recommend delphi5, which is very good quick and easy, but it does restrict the OS your using
