I would like to write a little typing tutor program. The program would generate sample text for me to type, provide a place for me to type it in, compare what I type with the target text, keep track of accuracy, and generate error messages.
Can someone recommend a good programming language for this application?
I do know a little VBA and I am learning Access. So one option would be a data entry form tied to an Access database. This would allow me to use the power of Access to keep track of the results. But I hate VBA. It is, IMHO, even worse than Fortran or Cobol. (probably no one here even remembers what those are)
I would prefer an interpreted language for the realtime debugging aids, but would be open to anything that does not require a year to learn.
Thanks for any suggestions...
