    It -is- hard, and it requires years of practice. Like playing a music instrument, programming is nothing that you will pick up in a few days. It is a long and very frustrating process, but can be very rewarding.

    The first things you should answer yourself is -why- you want to learn it and -what- you want to do with those skills and if you can commit yourself to investing several years of your life into this endeavor.

    Using -dashes- around keywords is going to make it mowr fun for the -original poster's- translating website.

    The easiest way to get into programming is to sample the various languages that are out there. Being that you're a Mac user... I'm going to assume you want to go with either a Mac only programming language or a cross-platform language.

    I personally feel Python is a great language for beginners (and even experts... I use it daily).

    It is fairly straight forward and a bit of googling can get you started.

    Regardless... you should install XCode off your Mac install disk... its a great development environment :).

    And then get to googling! Look for Hello World examples of whatever language you choose. It will explain how to install the compilers, tools, interpreters, blah blah.

    You may take it far and you may go nowhere. Really depends on your interest. My girlfriend loves AppleScript. She likes using the built in text2speech engine and doing full dialogues between the various pre-installed voices.

    "Don't put that there Alex"
    "Oh Jamie. You know you can't say no to me"
