For creating utils and Internet apps mostly, music apps and utils. For myself to learn. I am currently fluent in Basic, Pascal, Cobol, Fortran, C, C++, Lisp, 68k Assembler and RTL/2 real time language. But that was a long time ago. Thinking of learning Python from Scratch. Like I learnt C++ for dummies never coded in C before I learnt C++. Long time ago; I graduated in '95. Ruby or Python yeah?

Ta from Alex.

Python is widely used for apps that run on top of other programs; it also has the advantage of being self-documenting.

You might like to consider Lazarus. It's a very productive development environment which gets you going very quickly, and can be expanded to any degree of complexity you want.
