    Ok, I'm total newbie into all of the software programing languages. I have experience with php mainly so I need to ask all of you who knows a lot about software development.

    I want to know Is there a way to figure out what kind of programming language is used for particular software development ? I know there are plenty of programming languages that are similar and different at the same time.

    I had an idea for software but I dont have any knowledge to create it myself. That's why I wanna ask you guys. I know software that is similar to the one I wanna create and I wanna know is there a way to figure out what kind of language they have used to created it ?

    Thanks :)

    Just say what the software is and someone can probably tell you.

    You can pretty much create anything in any programming language, (granted, depending on what it is.) For general SEO tools and what have you, you can go for Visual Basic, Delphi. But if your looking to go places with programming, C++ is the way to go. It provides unmatched speed and capabilities as well as flexibility, it's easier to make threaded programs and all the more intricate things.

    It doesn't matter what language you are using, as long as you know how to use it properly.
    Just google for some programming forums and look around until you find a language that you feel comfortable with. Get some ebooks about that language and start learning, or find someone that can teach you.
    Personally I use C#, it is fast enough, syntax is easy, and it takes only a few lines of code to add multithreading and various other necessary features.

    Look at it this way: the more high level language you will use the - less happy your buyers will be.

    I personally delete anything written using Java, .NET, PHP (compiled one). Because the speed and the amount of resources used do not allow me to go multi-tasking.

    Your best choice is C/C++. The downside is the amount of code you will have to write. The advantage is speed and low dependence on external programs. The next best choice is visual basic, then C#.

    Lol, I can guarantee you that the average user doesn't give a damn whether it's in Java, .NET, C or Assembly.

    OP: Just pick C#. Yea, it requires the damn runtime (which everyone has these days...) but it's like 128.3% more effective to code than C++. However if you consider programming stuff for life and "want to do it the pro way", I'd recommend going straight to C++ which takes a long ass time to learn, a lifetime to master. Btw you can check the language and compiler used with CFF Explorer (you original guestion!).

    Part of my life I was in the software development business. Ad-hock software, written in Java or .NET was always less popular, due to bad reviews from experienced users.

    Average user might not care about the language, but his opinion usually influenced by more experienced users who install your software on his PC. And they care.
