Hello all, I was wondering, since I read in a document that programming is used alot in physics work, if Perl programming was any use? I dont know much about programming or even computers for that matter all I know is that Perl is mostly a text based programming system and I assume that its not used because its not binary? I picked up a few Perl books and that helped me understand the basics, I didnt get too far into it before sending it back to the library, too much work going on at the time. But if I was to pick up a book at a library that would help me with later physics work in college, to get a basic idea, what type of programming should I try and learn? C++ or C? Any tips?
