Hello Everyone. I wonder why[b] PERL (Practical Extraction And Report Language)[/b] was not listed. Its a multi-purpose programming language.

Designed by Larry Wall in the 80s. Perl has being used in all areas of software development imaginable. It happened to be the first programming language i learnt before delving into PHP and C.

From personal experience I will recommend C to ever new programmer. If you want your programming career foundation laid properly, I recommend this. After a few years with C delve into C++ spend some time with these two languages then you can easily pick up any other language easily because all other languages are derived from these two.

I have been trying to solve this problem for some times now. Anybody that can program the challenge should please help
Write a program which accepts a sequence of comma-separated numbers from console and
and generates a (n by m) of n times m = input_number matrix based on the number of input
given.
Suppose the following input is supplied to the program:
34,67,55,33,12,98 → 6 input.
Then, the output should be a 2 by 3 matrix or a 3 by 2 matrix since both multiplication equals
to 6 the total number of the inputs:
Sample Output
[[34, 67], [55,33], [12,98]] or [[34,67,55],[33,12,98]]

Javanian:
Due to the numerous "i want to start programming, which language should i start with" threads on this board i decided to create a thread that will address this issue. I am not a wonderful writer and i won't say i know it all but i will try. I urge every one on this board to correct me where i err an also contribute in whatever way you can to make this thread worth it. I will try as much as possible not to be biased in this write up.

I am not going to go into detail in defining what programming is because i will assume before entering this thread you should already know what programming is. But in summary programming is the act of creating whatever you want with your brain and computer programming is the act of creating whatever you want with your brain and a computer. You can read more from

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_programming

Programmers could also be called software programmers, software developers and other big-big names you can think of.

Feel free to ask your questions, i will try and answer the ones i can my Ogas in the house will help me with those i can't answer

Please every Programmer should try as much as possible to check on this thread once in a while to help answer some questions Newbies would like to ask.

@collinic, if you mean user input.Maybe this.

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;
int matrix[6];
int main () {
cout <<"Enter first number"<<endl;
cin >> matrix[0];
cout <<"Enter second,number"<<endl;
cin >> matrix[1];
cout <<"Enter third number"<<endl;
cin >> matrix[2];
cout <<"Enter fourth number"<<endl;
cin >> matrix[3];
cout <<"Enter fifth number"<<endl;
cin >> matrix[4];
cout <<"Enter sixth number"<<endl;
cin >> matrix[5];
cout << "Your output is:"<<endl<<'( matrix[0], matrix[1], matrix[2])' << '(matrix[3], matrix[4], matrix[5])';
return 0;
}

Hi, you should know that Java is entirely different from JavaScript which is a scripting language mostly use for app development and dynamism of a website. If you are a beginner, I do advice you start with JavaScript as Java is more complicated than JavaScript and as a beginner you might giving up to becoming a programmer if you start with Java especially if you are learning it the hard way (tutoring yourself). And if you which to start with JavaScript, codeacedemy is so cool to learn it. Tutoring myself too as a beginner. Learnt HTML and CSS with rithmschool.com and learning JavaScript with codeacedemy. And am finding it pretty cool and easy. Hope this helps. Goodluck.

I don't think the array is a static one in this case. My guess will be to get the size of the input stream buffer, then test if the value is even or odd using the modulus test.

He or she can then assign dynamic sized arrays to some variables to store part of the number using "new".
