Has he found a compiler that will let you mix all those languages in source files, and produce a single executable?
Now there's the first really sensible question I seen for a long, long time.
I'll ask him.

Whilst looking for something else in the forum I stumbled across this thread, and had to comment.

The LCS forums are littered with people struggling through problems that simply don't exist in good languages.
That's not true at all.
The LCS forums are full of messages asking for help because LiveCode, unlike a lot of other languages,
can be learnt largely by oneself (no textbooks, no nothing), but a little help does tend to accelerate things.

I explicitly choose LC because of ease of learning and the ability to write complex applications for Windows, Mac, Android and Linux, and even Raspberry PI as well as the cost-friendly nature of the licenses.
And even though the language basics of LC are easy to learn there is no development language that makes you a star programmer overnight. Even with LC you need to learn what is possible and how which takes time and perseverance in any language.
My 10 cents.

I have a friend who wants to learn to become good at playing basketball.
He's read a couple books on it, but he doesn't practice.
He's certain there should be a book that will explain how to do it well, that if it's written well enough he could read it and then step out onto the court and play like a pro, no practice needed.
And so he blames the documentation.
