What do you mean by "network programming"?

Re: Best network programming language 10 years 7 months ago #25412

my guess is that he means what is sometimes known as "socket programming" -- programming that allows one to create applications that will communicate with network resources or perform networking-related functions (i.e.: a program that will ping something upon request, establish a connection with a remote server, etc).

only toward the end of my experience/passion for programming did i start to want to search for the programming language that would be best for network programming -- I didn't find any.

Visual Basic.Net can be very usefull for creating nice customized tools. Ofcourse c++, c#, perl, batch-scripting, etc can also be used to create some tools.

Depends fully on the task you want to perform ofcourse.

"Network Programming" is to global to make a correct decision on which language would suit best

I'd use VC++ with the Win32 API. Search for books on "Windows Socket Programming". You might also need to use Winpcap SDK for sniffing Ethernet.
