I want to get back into programming but this time I want to do that on the Mac. Inspite of being a mac user forever (since the old Apple IIe times) I have never programmed on a Mac, well except for the Apple IIe actually. I think the reason is that I never found out where/how to on a Mac. The reason I finally decided to actually find something for the Mac is that for the first time I saw something available right in the shop: real basic (at the Apple Store). Anyway, I only do programming for "fun" and for testing stuff I do for work, and my question is, what would you recommend in terms of languages/environment ? all I know exists is real basic, but of course there is plenty others. It has to be somewhat simple and the package should come with a decent manual so that someone like me can get going somewhat quickly. May be real basic is a good start itself for the Mac ? what else is available... C++ or Java ? or would the latter two be too difficult ?
