I program professionally, and I try to know what I'm doing. "Try" being the operative word.

comment How can I write a set of functions that can be invoked from (almost) any programming language?
+1 'cause it's an interesting question - but your question would be improved by saying why you want to do this. What are your goals?

comment Learn programming backwards, or “so I failed the FizzBuzz test. Now what?”
I interview people, and I ask similar questions. I've had people come in who didn't know the modulus operator. The good ones wrote the loops, called a IsDivisibleByThree(int n) method, then tried to write that seperately. Some came up with a working solution without it. I'd then show them mod, see if they can use it. Points being, A) there's more than one way to skin a cat, B) If you're practicing, not knowing the answers teaches you more, so that's okay, C) When it counts, solve the problem be any means neccessary.

Have you investigated Mono? C# and most of the framework, on Linux. I haven't used it in anger, it's just a thought.
