Well, I am slowly teaching myself Assembly. High level assembly. Partly out of boredom, a desire to try something new, a desire to be a little different (everyone and their mother's hair dresser is a C++ programmer - not that many assembly and fortraners out there).

Note: I don't think this is popular. Just different. If you want popular, you might want to go with Java. Lots of java delop. jobs out there.

I heard that assembly is very flexible, but I think I heard it is outdated, is this true?

Basically, every higher level programming language,(C, C++, Pascal, whatever), is translated to Machine Code (=assembly).

So no, it is definately not outdated -- only a pain to work with.. Smile

I dunno if you should be going for the most popular.

I imagine VB is really up there in popularity, but..As with highschool that often doesn't mean a whole lot.

Alot to evaluate Smile.

I suggest whatever you choose that it be portable, in both execution and development tools.

Hehe I learned a little RPG 4 for work although our programs on the AS/400 are written in like 3 different versions and I got tired of going back and forth real quick Razz
CL was kind of cool to look at though.

All in all I think I'll be sticking with my C Razz

Try learning Java it shall be peace of cake to you since you started with C++.And then you can move on to a programing language for web just like JSP or PHP or JavaScript.Those languages I'm written in here is most popular ones and you don't have to spend more time since you already know C++. Wink
