Which one would you choose If....You were looking to make automated tool's to interact with today's web 2.0 sites? Tons of site's using java script etc. these days. Can vb6 even handle dealing with those type of things? If someone came to you & said.... "Hey I want to make a program to log in my facebook account, upload my newest photo's, & reply via message to all my friends that I'm on vacation" Which language would you point them to, that within a week or 2 they could do exactly that? (even if its not visual basic) I need to suggest a language to a friend who asked me this very question. And it needs to be a "within a month" learning curve, to get him going. Also what sites offer the most example code these days? Last time I messed with vb it was planetsourcecode. I'd like to be able to help point my friend in the right direction. He's disabled (at home with diabetes) and just needs something to occupy his mind. So feel free to PM me, if you don't want to post, thanks!
