    Telnet Server


    After seeing the website u413.com (sorry...i cant link it here)
    i have decided that i can make an entire social network like facebook from this site for geeks and nerds only... now that requires me to do lots of web programming and things like that but i have decided to go one step further and implement my own telnet server so that i can process the requests without the use of a browser... besides telnet is An outdated protocol which is usually shipped in every OS and including a few mobile phone oses so its the perfect protocol for the job...
    so can you please tell what all languages should i learn to implement iti know its difficult and there will be secuirity and compatibility problems but i am ready to do it what so ever to get it working...

    Entire operating systems are written in C. Quake3 is written in C. HalfLife2 is written in C++. Those languages are enough to do anything you want.

    This is going to be really difficult, but if anyone is going to do it, they should use a low-level C based language.

    You don't really have to use C or C++ unless you need the performance. There are perfectly good telnet libs available in other languages. For instance, I've seen lots of telnet servers written in python or ruby.

    This is true as well, I forgot about Python.

    And there is no need for performance with a telnet daemon. The client of the daemon should be a human typing.

    Unless you want to support things like PPP over telnet.

    C++ is an evil language, but that is just my personal opinion.

    The OP should be creative and use Google's new GO language.
