Well I currently program in VB and am trying to learn a bit of C++ however; I was curiouse as to whether pure basic would be recomended for games and just general over all programming? Thanks in advance Tova~

pure basic meaning this:


10 print "Hello"
20 goto 10



or do you mean Visual Basic when you say "pure basic"? VB is fine and dandy for programming games. A lot of people have coded sweet games in VB. If you're looking to go into the industry, however, C++ is the standard language.

Generally, the more languages you learn, the better off you are.

I'm pretty sure the OP was referring to the compiler. I've never used it, but it's billed as good for games development. If you want to eventually do this professionally, I'd advise C++. If you'd just like to make something to show off to your buddies, go ahead with PureBasic.
