This isn't specifically related to EV/O, but I was hoping to get some advice on learning programming languages.
Specifically I'm interested in learing how to make simple, arcade style games...mainly for myself.
Long ago I knew basic, but the only pseudo-languages I know now are HyperTalk and AppleScript.
Ideally I'd like to find some resource that would give me example code. I learn better from screwing around with examples than walking through tutorials.
At last! Someone who uses puncuation and breaks...you have earned my respect, i hope to see you around.
I recomend that you download REALbasic from (url="http://"http://www.realsoftware.com")www.realsoftware.com(/url) . It's a great programme with a very handy tutorial (even though you don't like using them).
If you're after source code, then you shoudl try searching at (url="http://"http://www.search.com")www.search.com(/url) . You can get suff like Doom and Quake 1 free, but some programmers make you pay for the privaledge(sp?) of using their code.
Also, if you've got $30 (if your american, I'm not) then I recomend you buy the "Mac Programming for Dummies 3rd edition" book from (url="http://"http://www.amazon.com")www.amazon.com(/url) Amazon, it's a very good book that teaches you the basic elements of C/C++ and you get Codewarrio LE (a professional programming enviroment free on the CD).
Learn to understand, and there will be nothing to know.

Thanks for the kudos and the advice. You'll probably see me around off and on as I've been working on an EVO related project for a while, and swing by the board when I've hit a wall and need some advice.
