Introduction

Comparing Six of the programme languages All of the six languages I'm going to compare are HTML, JavaScript, Pascal, SQL, Visual Basic, and winlogo. All of these languages use the same concept of using a sequence of instructions. To achieve the set of goal the programmer starts off with a problem of what the programmes intend to do. The written programmes are known as source of codes and are translated into the object code. Overall the program languages have been created at different time periods, which causes the difference between them. There are many errors in the programmes due to the development in different time periods which have enable them to progress from when they were first created to where they are now. ...read more.

Comparing Visual Basic (VB) with Pascal VB is much better as in Pascal you will have to insert the code by yourself and there is hardly any help. Pascal is the earliest programme designed, which does not include many features but is used a teaching language as it makes the user familiar with the format of programming, i.e. defining variables and integers etc. It is not very useful compared to Visual Basic as it is very hard to find the error in Pascal and it takes a very long time to just move around on the page. Html is a web-oriented language and is the main language that is written to create website. ...read more.

Conclusion

Winlogo is a window computing programming language that has mainly been intended as a basic computing program language to help learners get into the exciting world of programming. It is easy for a new programmer to get started writing basic programs and should enjoy it. It is used for learning control purposes i.e. (FD, BK,). It is very basic and does not have any complex items, which may help further a programming career. Overall I think Visual Basic is the best programming language to use as it is has all the features which are required while creating programs. It is all screen based so you can see what you are creating while you are designing it. With the features provided in the program you can design a high class program. ...read more.

    The third and most important difference is in the way the languages run. Whereas as Qbasic runs like a flowchart and in fact could be written into one, Visual Basic is a series of scripts for events. So, while Qbasic is processing lines of code one by one, VB is waiting for something to happen.

    The simplicity of Java is a result of omitting confusing, seldom used, poorly understood features from C++. These features include multiple inheritance, operator overloading, pointers, structures, multi-dimensional arrays, unions, templates, typedefs, unsigned numeric data types, null-terminated strings, stand alone functions, goto, pointers to lists, and more built-in, potentially limiting features.

  2. Creating a Java Bot

    Now we have our bot running, "yay" this means that our AccessorMethods (and scripts that extend it) can access all the bots functions such as sendPrivateMessage(String s) etc. etc. via instance reference and a nifty little interface. To summarise: Bot Loads through batch -> Preloads a "static RS jar" ->

  1. Visual Basic variables

    Number (integer): is any whole number, whether positive or negative. In visual basic you can declare the number as an integer, for example: Dim bookingNo As Integer and this is the same in Pascal, for example VAR I, J: INTEGER; Number (real): is any number represented with a fractional part.

  2. Ways of Promoting a Website

    An affiliate is also known as reciprocal linking. This is where two or three sites link together to increase website traffic to the site and can play a major part in the maximisation of rankings in the search engine database. When using a link to another site the search engine will take in to account the quality and ranking of the site.
