Hi Guys.

I wanna write a couple of windows exe applications. I usually do programming in PHP, Javascript. SQL. XML etc...

I know and have used Borland C++ but the one i have is outdated and slow.. What is the best environment to be compiling exe files in? and what language should i use? I would like to use a language similar to PHP . Thanks. And i would not like to use any .NET stuff.

Hi there,

It would entirely depend on the type of application you're looking to write, C++ / C# are usually perfect but if you want something closer to PHP I would suggest Perl, Python or Java (closer to C++)

All can be compiled into a windows executable and reasonably easy to build for (especially Java - downloading netbeans you can build your AI with a point and click interface)

Hope that helps

Kind regards

I have heard of it and using QT PHP extensions you can build applications for windows / linux however
their not compiled so for larger applications this can cause perfomance issues, it means your code is exposed and easily readable and the client machine requires PHP and the extensions
