    No matter what you learn, stick to it and get to known to it by heart. It is no good to jump from language to language and

    My favourite is Perl but it is an interpreter not a compiler language.

    My vote is for either perl or python to start with.

    Also, if you are going to be working with Windows boxes, learn how to use/make either DOS batch scripts or VB scripts. Not every Windows box can run perl or python natively, but they can run VB or DOS! Saved my bacon many times during pentests.

    well if you are new to programming i would recommend python or perl
    for windows start with visual basic . dont go with c++ if this is the first language you going to learn .
