comment Which programming language is best to begin with as a total beginner?
@psusi: I'm compiling like this: gcc -std=c99 sample.c -o sample, testing like this: ./sample && echo "fine" || echo "garbage" and get as result: Hello World fine - how do you compile, how do you test, and what is your result?

@Levon: My sample was made a oneliner by the software of SE, it wasn't meant as oneliner. And don't blame C for your missing knowledge - a missing return is implicitly interpreted as return 0 - what is the implicit return of your python code, or doesn't it return? Shouldn't the Python program be started with a shebang? You can "optimize" programs by leaving out things ...

Your comparison is very biased. The C-Example, can be reduced to int main () { puts ("Hello World"); } and on the other hand, I have seen python-code with ` __main__` -boilerplate too.

If limited knowledge in QBasic is in any kind limiting for your decision, maybe you should learn QBasic? Perhaps to the full, and then learn something else completely.

comment Multivariable For Loops
Well - I'm sorry, I'm very much acting without fundament here. I thought I heared so, but maybe it is only the < compared to cat. And I'm unsure how to test it, and when it will become semantically important. If pipes are invoked, variables in subprocesses don't bubble up to the main process, but we don't have variables here. I strike through the critical sentence, until somebody can clarify it.

Fine. For programming, I remember that I used svgalib, which came with some demos.

Just count bc as one of the scripting languages. I always know whether I need integer results or not - if integer is alright I stay in bash, else I rarely have reason to use bc. For lua, you have to remember -e, print and parenthesis.
