What is the programming language best suited to make small programs?
Hi, I've been wanting to learn a programming language for a while now, but I can't decide what language to learn. I have some experience in html and css, but web design is not the kind of code I want to learn. I want to make small programs, just to help with every-day use.
I am currently using windows at the moment, but I might be making a switch to linux in the near future.
I have been looking into VB, Python and Ruby, but I don't know what Python and Ruby are good at. Making small programs or web development.
If there are any other languages that you thing I should look at please feel free to post them.
