Isn't that the general idea with all object oriented programming? regardless language.


True, but then Java has the perfect complexity balance. It's easy to learn and use, but not so complex as to be hard. From what I hear, C++ on the other hand, is so complex as to be very difficult. Having said that however, I am planning on studying C++ soon.

True, Java used to be slower than machine-code, but benchmark tests of modern Java show that overall it's just as fast now.

EDIT: Hey GLI, that's a pretty slick quiz you found. :) It says I'm like LISP.

It would be interesting to hear your verdict on which is easiest, or rather, if C++ is all that difficult as they say. I have no frame of reference, since c++ is the only real language I know.
(pointers can get confusing, but you don't have to use them, you can use references instead.)

Ok, I'll let you know what I think of C++ when I get started with it...

How is your gui coming along?  Because it is so lightweight a project, have you considered just javascript?  Believe me, I think javascript is almost as ugly as actionscript (could a language be any uglier?) but I hate crossplatform gui work so I have started to use jquery for a front end to let the browser of choice do the gui work for me and I get to focus on the logic.  You would need PHP ( or ruby, python, etc) for the document handling, but this way it could be a web service instead of a local program allowing you to attract asciisector fans to your website (provided that is something you would like to do). PHP has to be just about the easiest language to learn (ruby fans don't get mad, ruby is up there too).  Let me know if you have stalled in your project and I might take it up.

NOTE:  If I were only writing for linux I would use C++, and for a project this small gedit or Emacs, though if you have not tried Eclipse, I recommend giving it a try.
