Seeking a good C introduction book

P: n/a
Dear All,

I am relatively new to C(But I have computer science background and know
some other programming languages). I am wondering if anyboby can
recommend me some C books or websites. I prefer the books with code that
can be downloaded from websites. (I like to read those codes and play
with it. I found it is a fast way to pick up a language, without going
through lengthy introduction about variable types, control structures,
etc, which I have been exposed many times in learning other languages.)

Thank you very much for your help. I greatly appreciate it.

"This book is meant to help the reader learn how to program in C.
It contains a tutorial introduction to get new users started
as soon as possible."

"It is not an introductory programming manual;
it assumes some familiarity with basic programming concepts
like variables asignmemt statements, loops and functions."

And you'll need this too:
