C Programming

P: n/a
Hello,

I am looking for active newsgroups, productive user friendly tutorials, good
weblinks, and local private tutors especially (Melbourne Australia) in the
programming
language C (not C++ at this stage). Any information or advice with anything
to do with the
language will be much appreciated.

Regards

Dave

This is off toping in c.l.c++ . Two floors down and 3 doors to the
right you'll find the C department.

Some pointers though.

a) Learning C++ first is probably a better thing to do.
b) No one in Melbourne knows how to program. ... anything ... :-)

Mind you, C and C++ are separate languages! You don't have to learn C
before learning C++, several C-ideoms are even considered harmful in C++.

Yes, it is true that you can write programs using a subset of both C and
C++ that is valid and functional but this is mostly of academic interest.
The only well-guarded compatibility is that C++-programs can directly use
and link C-libraries.
Any information or advice with anything
to do with the language will be much appreciated.


ACCU - Association of C and C++ Users
http://www.accu.org has lots of book-reviews.

Start with http://www.lysator.liu.se/c/ Anything more than 3 clicks away
from there you do not need to know about :-)

The alt.comp.lang.learn.c-c++ group might be of help to you. There are also
several C tutorials on-line (Google: http://www.google.com/search?q=C+tutorial)

As for teachers in Australia - no idea :|
