Programing languages Answered

Hey guys its me again, i have been hacking for a 2/3 years now but only physically as for code i only memorize certain commands like ipconfig, (otherwise i use you tube) and some other commands that are basic. Today is a new day and i have chosen to learn a computer language for the purpose of hacking and making programs and my first thought to help with this delema was Google but it didn't help so i am depending on you instructable members. What is the best program for hacking and writing programs?? please respond


You can't become a "hacker". You have to learn the basics of a language, and then utilize what you know to do whatever you want to do. I am taking C++ in school, and we do Basic Window Console Apps, and it is the basics, but we are learning the language quite well. cout<<"Hello World!"<<endl;

def intro():

exactly. It is like saying "what kind of wood should I use to become a carpenter"

int main() {

second recommendation from me: not to pick up just any 2600 issue, find volume 24 number 2 summer 2007, and go directly to Hacker Perspective. Hacking is not the goal, it is the journey.


procedure end

#include <iostream.h.>

int main()

char a;
cout<<"Am I considered a hacker if I can go to a site using a proxy? (Y/N)";
if (a='Y')
cout<<"You are sadly misunderstood of the concept of hacking";
cout<<"Congrats you are not an ignoramus!"<<endl;

return (0);

Sorry, I meant to attach my last post to my PS above yours *blush*

ok a little harsh all i needed was some programing languages but if you want play it like that its k ill scroll the web for a few days i already have 3 languages to learn and as for the definitions i do not make furniture

think about it though, you are asking "what is the best icecream flavor if I want to eat ice cream".

For instance: you want to learn about .NET FRAMEWORK then you will have to get some tutorials on that (they support a lot of different languages, so once you start to look into this, you will understand what I mean).

C was trying to replace the COBOL generation (mine ;-) ), but things got complicated: C, C+, C++, Visual C, C#...... The advice being given here, that you miss, is "find the mountain you wish to climb, the language you wish to learn" and start up it. It isn't that hackers don't like to help; they just can't spoon feed, chew, and digest for you. Stay safe and stay legal.

P.S.: if you get yourself a copy of the 2600 (available in any Border's bookstore), you will get a feel for what I am trying to communicate: they all have whatever skill they have, through long study and practice, and no ONE language suffices for everything.

do u mean hacking as in like cracking into other peoples stuff, or hacking as in moddifiying stuff like sticking an aqaurium in a crt monitor?

physical hacker.... aquarium CRT..... he's looking to be angalina jolies boyfriend and call himself Zero Cool

1st off, you'll never find a real "hacker" strolling around the net calling themselves a "hacker" 2nd most "hackers" hate noobs they hate to slave over miles and miles of code to figure it out themselves, why shouldn't you have to? also, if there real hackers and they have any accomplishments under there belt worth noting they don't want anyone other then there tight knit group to know about it...... because it was probably illigal. but to answer your question, the best place to learn the tools of the trade (if you not just a natural at it) is school. study hard through high school and take advanced programming in collage or university. if you wanna start getting comfortable with "code" get a copy of Qbasic and Touring there oldschool basic basic programming languages that might be easier places to kinda ....... learn the ways..... these programs are basic basic basic starting points.......... in reality to be any type of skilled programmer you need to be proficient at many different languages..... C++ , Java Script, Html ....... and many many many many more...... basically what I am saying is that there is no one programming language that is gonna make you an instant "hacker" it takes years to learn the skills, and like I already mentioned......School is the best place to learn. Get yourself a decent education and study hard.... then maybe in 8 - 10 years from know when your knowledgable enough to be a "hacker" you'll hopefully also be mature enough to realize that you just spent hundreds of thousands of dollars on that knoledge and you'll want to use your skills for good rather then evil get a solid programming job and maybe try to start earning enough money to pay off that massive school debt

P.S. Most of your "Hollywood Hackers" type people use more Social Engineering then any programming skills. One of the most Notorious Hackers of all time Kevin Mitnik was not very computer savvy at all, he acomplished the majority of his noteriety through social engineering

Which computer language you should learn depends on what sort of things you want to "hack." For windows type applications, you might as well download microsoft's free visual basic express. For microcontrollers and hardware, you should probably look at Basic Stamp "BASIC", or Arduino "C".

hacker: n.

[originally, someone who makes furniture with an axe]

1. A person who enjoys exploring the details of programmable systems and how to stretch their capabilities, as opposed to most users, who prefer to learn only the minimum necessary. RFC1392, the Internet Users' Glossary, usefully amplifies this as: A person who delights in having an intimate understanding of the internal workings of a system, computers and computer networks in particular.

2. One who programs enthusiastically (even obsessively) or who enjoys programming rather than just theorizing about programming.

3. A person capable of appreciating hack value.

4. A person who is good at programming quickly.

5. An expert at a particular program, or one who frequently does work using it or on it; as in ‘a Unix hacker’. (Definitions 1 through 5 are correlated, and people who fit them congregate.)

6. An expert or enthusiast of any kind. One might be an astronomy hacker, for example.

7. One who enjoys the intellectual challenge of creatively overcoming or circumventing limitations.

8. [deprecated] A malicious meddler who tries to discover sensitive information by poking around. Hence password hacker, network hacker. The correct term for this sense is cracker.

The term ‘hacker’ also tends to connote membership in the global community defined by the net (see the network. For discussion of some of the basics of this culture, see the How To Become A Hacker FAQ. It also implies that the person described is seen to subscribe to some version of the hacker ethic (see hacker ethic).

It is better to be described as a hacker by others than to describe oneself that way. Hackers consider themselves something of an elite (a meritocracy based on ability), though one to which new members are gladly welcome. There is thus a certain ego satisfaction to be had in identifying yourself as a hacker (but if you claim to be one and are not, you'll quickly be labeled bogus). See also geek, wannabee.

This term seems to have been first adopted as a badge in the 1960s by the hacker culture surrounding TMRC and the MIT AI Lab. We have a report that it was used in a sense close to this entry's by teenage radio hams and electronics tinkerers in the mid-1950s.
