Tip Learning a foreign language is much more difficult than learning a programming language. Most of a programming language is made up of words you already know, such as while, if, then, for, let, and so on. The computer’s strict nature dictates very specific uses of these words, but the similarity of the words’ meanings to their English usage makes programming languages easy for you to learn and remember. There are lots of reasons why so many programming languages exist. Different people have different preferences, some languages are better than others depending on the tasks, and some people have access to only one or two of the languages.
For example, PROLOG was rarely used outside the artificial intelligence field but was the language of choice there in the early years. Each programming language has its own dialects. BASIC is tremendously popular in all of the following varieties: GW-BASIC QuickBasic QBasic BASICA Visual Basic Before you finish this book, you will be writing complete Windows programs in Visual Basic. Chapters 5 through 11 teach you Visual Basic (today’s most popular version of the original BASIC language) and show you how to write programs that do what you want them to do.
Just as authors write differently and musicians play differently, each programmer has his own style. Therefore, you would think that programming is more of an art than a science. You would be closer to being correct than those few who argue that programming is more of a science. Nevertheless, as advances are made in programming approaches such as structured programming and object-oriented programming, you should see a shift in thinking. With the proliferation of computers in today’s world, there is a move in process to train tomorrow’s programmers.
