Kernigan's The C Programming Language is more of a reference (its like the C programmers bible), you buy those when you have gotten your feet wet with the basics of the language, like these days I don't bother with remembering syntax I just open my book,  so for now if you are learning its all about tutorials.

Here are tutorials on Basic programming - http://www.freeprogrammingresources.com/basictutr.html.

In my humble opinion, why not start with C or PHP and move to java.

Opinion is like a nose every one has one. But mine is that rookies can never be left out in this Forum,

Nevertheless , the Author has given me a go head order, so newbies any one with problem on Basic or rather qbasic in particular should not fail to ask even if i can't help out this is is forum for u to throw in your question

In Addition, for more information on basic please visit

I used Thau's JavaScript Tutorial at http://hotwired.lycos.com/webmonkey/programming/javascript/tutorials/tutorial1.html to learn. I then picked up the book "Javascript" by David Flanagan, from O'reilly.

I'm not lazy at reading, so I managed to read that book cover to cover. It's hard work, but well worth every second.

@Oasis, you are right, a lot of programmers including myself do not really understand javascript.  Javascript can also be difficult to learn for young programmer especially when it comes to OOP, because javascript supports OOP.

It is un-typed language like php and uses Microsoft and Netscape Objects a lot.  Like Layers for Netscape and Frames for windows.  I would like someone to recommed a good site to learning javascript.

Basic is a powerful tool for the novice programmer.  However, as long as the emphasis is on the techniques of programming and problem solving, I really believe you should consider something useful today.  How about Javascript?  It's easy, has tremendous reach, and it only requires a browser to run. 

With javascript, you can graduate to dhtml, ajax, smil, dom, etc, and you'd be ready for grabbing the bull by the horn as far as learning real programming languages is concerned.  Just my opinion.

On the other hand, you probably have a reason for wanting to learn basic.

BASIC - Beginners All Purpose Symbolic Instruction Code

Any newbies to programming may have a look at BASIC, I took QBASIC in first semester of my year one at the higher institution.

I would love to see somebody reminding me of the good old days.

Regards,

That used to be true, but now, learning BASIC is like a waste of time. It's semantics and syntax are very very different from the languages being used currently.

BASIC is the most basic programming language. So all newbies to programming should learn that first.

But he is free to introduce it to the forum. BASIC is a useful language if you're not a career programmer but just want to do some automation of tasks you normally perform manually.
