    Programing Language Help
    Hello. I am trying to make a simple file organizer for scanned files. Basically what I would like to do is scan something then have a dialogue box ask some questions and put the file in the appropriate spot.
    What language would be the best for this? I would like to learn one anyways so it will be a good goal (I understand that it will take awhile before I will be able to do this). Thanks.

    I don't think the web design forum is right for this question, but if you want to design on a Mac, you are probably looking at Objective-C and Cocoa.

    Yes, web design doesn't sem to be the right forum. As far as languages though, i think Java or C++ will work (not positive about Java but i think it could manage). I'm not sure what the best is, though. I do know your mac probably comes with a C++ compiler already on it through terminal (i think) so you may just want to do that.

    Thanks for the info. Maybe a mod will move the thread (I should have posted it in the software development section) . Will just normal C work or will i have to learn C++?

    Since you placed this question in the web design section, I'm going to assume you are thinking of using a web page for this rather than doing this locally on your Mac.

    There isn't a particular 'best language' for this. I'd recommend Perl or PHP simply because of all the sources for information available. Learning a scripting language is a good place to start programming.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

    I've started learning C, and will hopefully soon move to Objective-C. I am using XCode to write/compile. Thanks Again.
