    They are in all types of languages because they are coded by many different people. There is not just one language. I'm not understanding why you just cant look for your self.

    I would just learn some C++, it's a harder language and not script but, i believe you could do more. BT comes with a compiler so you wouldn't have to get one, and the code , if coded correctly, can work on multiple OS's

    If you learn C (which isn't really a script language), everything else will seem easy from there.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.
