    Ok so main question of this thread is what is the best language for creating programs that will automatize/enable stuff/work on web pages.

    I heard of multiple ones so far I think java,php and python are definite winners and C for offline work.


    What are your recomandations?

    Sure if you have enough experience you can do it in most languages.

    I use PHP with Curl too and working pretty good so far.

    PHP is probably the best language you can start off by learning.

    It's very useful and after learning the concept, learning other languages is a breeze.

    I guess it largely depends on what you're trying to do.

    Personally, I'm with everyone else in this thread in recommending php. I've used php for curl and various other things and it works really well. However, if you're trying to do bots, and this is a personal opinion of course, I prefer desktop applications, in which case I'd suggest you go after Java, since it functions on both levels. Or maybe C# or ASP.net.

    PHP is great for automating a lot of online stuff.

    .Net is also excellent if you want to automate pretty much anything. If you see a lot of the bots are developed using .net
