    When faced with a wall of errors and no hope to fix them, remember the following "Programs always do what you tell them to, and seldom what you want them to, but eventually you'll run out of things that can go wrong and it'll just work. and that's the secret to good programming."

Hi.

I was just wondering, which language is the best to start with when you are a noob like me?:P

What are you wanting to do? Python is a nice scripting language where you can work with algorithms or input easily, vb.NET is a good simple language to work with GUIs (drag and drop with visual studio)

Ruby is a nice language, and so is Common Lisp.

'programs' is a very big word. Can you please be more specific with what are you looking for?(Games are programs, too.)
Also, what operating system are you using?

C++, Are you by any chance hoping to do website development as well. If so the process will be much simpler for you. In that case PHP.

Instead of thinking about which language, look for absolute beginner programming tutorials or books on the web. These sources will start you off on the fundamentals and give you a better idea of where you want to go.

But in general, if you want to build websites then PHP is a good place to begin; for Windows Apps Visual Studio.NET (express edition is free) would suffice.

Yes, you can run the executable in a CGI environment, but you are limited in optinos.

You can basically print "Content-Type: text/html\r\nHost:foo.com\r\n\r\n (then print HTML page here)" and that is all that is required for Apache to serve a page from a C/PERL/etc. executable. Many old ASP sites included somewhat sufficient mvc and dataset handling through dlls, such as /cgi-bin/handle.dll?commandlinearg=foo
