    Well, if you want to really learn unix, then you should learn C. C and C++ are diffferent. C++ is easier, but like you said, unix is based on C.

    I'd have to disagree with souleman here. He said that C++ is an easier language. It really depends what he means by "easier". I agree that to write complex programs it probably is (object orientated v's procedural) but to learn C is much much "easier" IMHO.

    (But I might feel this way just because I learned C first and I am still much more familiar with it.)

    Anyway, you should learn one of them cause they are still the most widely used languages.

    I have to agree with garathjax. C++ with it's whole object oriented approach is far more complex. Anyone that says they master object oriented programming totally is either a lier or haven't read enough on the subject.

    If you have a good understanding of oo in Java you're one step closer to C++.

    Well
    ~~~~

    i think(don't comment on me) that it's totally true to learn as many programming languages as you desired~~~ but you need to (very or extremely) get use to one language(specific one that you can handle more then other)

    one of my believes is that hacking requires team work~~unless someday every one turn against you~~so it's necessary to find a major language.



    by the way~ C++ contains more of the "USER INTERFACE"(not sure the spelling) function then what C contains, which is fairy acceptable, i suggest you to learn alittle bit of C then go right into C++ if it's in Microsoft Windows stuff

    but for Unix, there is only " C " language, so make sure your are learning "UNIX C"

    i am trying to figure out the asm language right now, i don't even know why i am doing it~~

    Learn all that you can.... about every language you can. It will help out with the languages you use. Personaly attempted to learn C++ first but found it easier to handle when I decided it might be better to learn C first. IMHO learning C is a must and will make C++ easier.

    i agree ... c for unix and unix for c ....

    and if u r looking for programming .. i do recomend C .. very powerful...

    Yeah, learn C++. No questions about it. and not only because Unix is in c/c++ but its an amazing language (somebody said that before...)

    >>IMHO learning C is a must and will make C++ easier.
    not IMHO its not neccessary to learn c first
