    Re: VB6

    You will probably find more help on a website/forum that specializes in this. Most people here are into web site development(HTML,Javascript,CSS,etc) and probably don't know much on program coding.

    Bad memory management, horrid code structure, comparision to bad pseudocode. Don't get me started.

    I just explained why. Until you use "better" languages the differences are certainly clear.

    Problem is if I don't say it, by default I'll get asked. It good to let others know. I get too many programming type questions via pm. Also stop damn quoting me.

    Re: C, C#, C++

    One big difference between, C & C++ to C# is that C# has a garbage collector which manages memory for you. Ie when you use a variable you take up so much memory, depending on type / size. The .Net runtime environment for C# collects "dead" objects / variables / data when they fall out of scope - i.e no longer used / referred to. In C and C++ you don't have this.

    You manage all memory yourself. So you take some memory for a variable you're expected to release the memory back at some point, if you don't you can end up with a memory leak which brings down your entire program and maybe your computer / system. In C++ you can use destructors inside classes to deallocate memory for objects and the like.

    C and C++ is often used with games because it's fast, if they had a garbage collector they would be slower. Problem is, it can be pain sometimes managing all the memory yourself. Starting out with C / C++ though not a major concern, but something to think about.

    Hopefully that clears up the big difference.

    Hopefully you are not as unlucky as me where my school does not offer any [computer] language classes or suggest any. You should look around and see if your school offers any.

    Yeah, I don't know about !Code but I don't have any classes offered at my school. There is a web design class offered to seniors, but I'm far beyond the level that it's taught at.
