I have zero programming experience, except for a little dbase years ago. I would like to learn, but I really don't know where to start. What are my options? I suppose I need something that's not too difficult (I'm not that smart). Also something flexible, and not too expensive to buy (I don't want to spend 500 dollars getting started). I'm assuming my choices are VB, C, C++, these are just the ones I've seen mentioned. Any thoughts appreciated.
