    Which is the hardest/most boring code you ever learned?

    Which is the hardest/most boring code you ever learned?

    For me: Javascript and php.
    Why javascript is hard? Javascript because you need case-sensitive letters which causes validation.
    No I like javascript, it's just hard.

    Why php is hard? It's soooooooooooooooooooo hard and boring!!!!!!!!!!!

    That would be my forays into C/C++ and Java. (Though I didn't get more than 5-6 Java classes written before I dismissed the idea of teaching myself that language, so I hardly learnt it.

    C/C++ on the other hand can be fun in some ways that higher level programming languages cannot, too. Sometimes it's fun messing with machine close code.

    On the other hand, I still have some esoteric languages such as intercal, brain**** and malbolge on my "look into if you get time" list, and I seriously think they'll be a pain to learn. Unlambda was, and that is a language of pure beauty compared to malbolge...

    I have to say C++, but it was not because of the language itself, but more because of the teacher we had. He has one of those voices that gets you sleepy, he's got a twisted logic and his exams were unfeasable cuz no one understood what he wanted...

    Other than that, I wouldnt know. I learned VB.Net quite easily, and after doing C++, php or C# or javascript kinda looked like nothing :P Althought javascript is tricky 'nuff

    I'll be honest that I haven't ever been bored learning a language. But I'd say the hardest that I've had to learn would be lisp. Simply because it is SO different then normal languages but so powerful as far as evaluation of different expressions go.

    But I don't think I've ever been bored learning a language.

    *edit* Assembly would be a close second if not equal first.

    lisp is second on my list. I had to work with both that and prolog back to back in college.

    I loved Assembly (not that I'd want to code in it now), it was the first real language I learned - BASIC, at the time didn't qualify.

    The only problem I had with php, was intermixing html with the php. Not that I found it hard, just annoying to follow. Now I use the Smarty Template Engine which allows me to separate the code (php) from design (html).

    I have to agree that RPG was my least favorite language (if you can call it that) to learn.

    I actually don't mind assembly too much; I think the most complicated usage I ever did was building a code generator in C++ that generated assembly, that got a little crazy.

    I think the language I haven't liked the most has been ColdFusion, it wasn't too hard to pick up, I just didn't really like writing it.

    assembly and lisp will both take 75 years to complete.

    progress: HTML: 100% > CSS: 90% > Javascript: 55% > Php:10%
