With reference to my previous post....
Yes, I want to become a security specialist....
I dont know any frontend except a little of C & C++
Which is the best frontend around : Java, VB, VC++, ASP, Perl for securing a network ?
Sorry for multiple similar post - I had clicked the "submit"button multiple times since server did not response for long times.

I would say go for C and C++, altough some people would recommend Java.

I agree with Leviatan with these side bars:
C/C++ very fast languages compiled and platform specific (lets you make calls of the OS without too much difficulty) -but most be rebuilt if the OS changes.
Java -a litle slow (interpurted not compiled). Platform independent. The interface on Unix is the same as on winX. Poor support for level functionality (file manipulation).
If you spend more on coffee than on IT security, you will be hacked. What\'s more, you deserve to be hacked.

First of all, you are talking about programming languages, not front ends. A front end would be more like Microsoft Visual Basic, or Borland C++.
Second> please search the formus before you make a post like this. This has been discussed many many many many many many times. Just search for programming languages, you will find a lot of posts about what someone should learn first.
