What Programming Language will help me to create automated software?


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone can point this out to me. I am interested in automating some simpletasks such as signups and logins. Windows text file maipulation and other related things. What will be the best for me. I also dont really have a programming background. Although i am good with software and stuff :) :)

Yes, So the ones with easy api programming will be cool too. I can use captcha breaker tools then. Also i need to make them multithreaded and socket based. Some website commenter bots etc etc. The usual, i could make some with winautomation but they lack the flexibility that i need. And please dont tell me c or c++. I dont seem to understand them although python is easier in my opinion.

Signups and logins on a website I'm assuming?

 

Do they have captcha's of any sort?

Yes, but i dont wanna comment. I meant to comment or rate on youtube etc. And i have scrapebox. Its good, but it wont do my specific needs. For eg i want to make a account maker for hotmail, what can i use?

 

That sort of use. Its a little blackhat. :)

For simple taska, go for Ubot or Zennoposter.

 

For a complete bot, go for a prohramming language like .NET

 

How long does it take to learn it? And do you know some good video tuts? Or Websites to get them?

To be honest, you're going to have a hard time at this. Sites are constantly working, updating their CAPTCHAs to ensure nobody but the most dedicated bot-writers get through. In fact, most dedicated spammers use a sophisticated system where they put the CAPTCHA they want to crack on, for example, a porn site, and basically have their users solve CAPTCHAs for them. You do need some kind of momentum to pull this off, however.

Captchas are the least of the worries. They can be broken easily with 3rd party services. So other than that, I am looking forward to.

Still, you're not going to find someone who's done all the work for you. This is the kind of thing you need to maintain yourself. This means learning a programming language, actually learning one, building something from scratch, and keeping it updated. Expect to invest a lot of time in this.

 

I know you're probably looking for something you can set up in five minutes with minimal effort, but that's not the way the internet works I'm afraid.

Ofcourse not. I intend to be able to grasp it. But time isnt that big of a factor. I am willing to spend 3-6 months learning a language and implementing it. If i was looking for something i could easily make bots using winautomation. But i need more flexibility.

 

Thank for your input though. :P

In that case, I suggest looking around a lot. Different strokes for different folks. Personally, I've had the best experience with .NET languages, especially C#, but there are plenty of options out there. Python, Java, even Javascript if you want. Look for something you like, invest time in learning it, and move on from there.

 

You can always come back and ask more questions about specific implementations once you've got the basic idea behind programming languages.

I've made a YouTube bot in VB.net before. It utilized the web browser controls, which isn't hard to learn.

 

How mine worked was it used the web browser to find the class with the specified ID, then it would take the appended action. Whether that being input text to a field or clicking a button.

 

But, I'd recommend a .net language if you don't know any others. It's a good starter language.

I would recommend against VB.NET though. Sure, it's an easy language to learn, but it gives you a terrible basis to continue programming, because there are so very little (Visual) Basic languages out there. If you want to do .NET, I'd say start with C#.

 

After all, once you've learnt C#, you can also do Java with little to no problems, and you'll have basic C-like syntax down which is what most languages today are based on anyway.

Thanks guys. I am currently learning python. SO VB is next in line.

Now, this is what I'm warning against. Out of curiosity, why do you want to learn Visual Basic?

 

It's a very out-dated and backwards language that is only maintained because so many people don't know any better. You'll be much more successful at many more languages if you skip learning Visual Basic.

 

That is, unless you have a very good reason to choose Visual Basic, other than "it seems easy." Learning a language with C syntax (there are lots of these) pays off in the long run.

I wouldn't disagree that it teaches you bad habits. Though C# and VB compile to the same thing, and are essentially the same thing. C# would get you a lot more experience in higher level coding (ex. C, C++, etc)

Not bad habits, per se, but it teaches you a syntax you will never ever use again. Most languages are C-style, however, C, C++, C#, but also Java, Javascript, Ruby, etc.

 

By the way, small nitpick, C# is far more high level than C and C++ is. Those are near the lowest level you get in programming these days, before you hit assembly.

That was a mistake in my post. I mean .net language. I thought it read VB.net. And yes I am trying to learn C#, can you provide me some good tuts or videos? (They will be much appreciated.)

To be honest, I've never really used a lot of tutorials or videos for learning C#, but MSDN is a brilliant resource. They've got tutorials, videos, reference guides etc.

Is that free? I thought that I had to pay for it? I dont really have a CC, so I prefer free sources a bit more. Thanks for the info.

Yes, it's free. Microsoft is a lot more welcoming of free users lately. You can even get a (limited) version of Visual Studio for free here. It depends on what you want to do, because some stuff is paid, but I definitely suggest you look around on there and see what you can use.

Yes, check it out, you won't regret. First timers should use Visual Basic, as it's the easiest one available.

Sorry but, a lot of forum/signup softwares have been stepping up on captcha so you may have a hard time. I would recommend C++ or C#, both of those should do your job. But just letting you know that softwares have stepped up on automated security.
