    Okay, so I've started writing simple programs with mobile text editor and mobile terminal. I can save commands. (I don't have a computer so I have to do everything on the touch) And I have python installed. I found a guide online for writing programs with python, but some of the commands don't work. So I was wondering, which runtime is best for my situation? Php? Java? Ruby? Which one is easier to learn? Any help is appreciated! (remember, no pc , so I can't use jiggy)

    bump (10 char limit)

    I'm also having some trouble with Python. When they want me to enter into text edit
    a = 5
    b = 8
    c = a + b
    print c


    But when I run that, terminal just says command not found a. Am I missing something? And I also can't icorperate input into my programs. Like

    print "Halt!"
    s = raw_input ("Who goes there?"):
    print "You may pass" s

    And it comes back with
    Halt!
    command not found s
    who goes there?
    you may pass s



    Any help is appreciated!

    BUMP!! Come on, I know we have some developers on here that could help me with these problems.

    Asshole... nobody will help a guy with 229 posts and the only reason why he has so many posts is a quadriple post...And dude, you seriously need a computer, you will not get anything finished if you really do not have a computer...

    EDIT: lol, your sig says double posters die, what about "spinner" here?
