Default Books for Learning C

The authors suggest other books for administering Linux systems. They do not recommend however a book for those of us that need to learn C. Tips on good sources to learn C would be greatly appreciated. I have started to learn Visual Studio VB. I have the 2002 version of Visual Studio with several languages installed but I am not sure the .NET environment is the best to learn C so I can program with Linux. Are the classes consistent?

Best regards,

Kevin Tough

The classes won't be consistent, no. AFAIK .NET is tied to Microsoft's c# language, which is very different from c and largely different from c++ (its actually more like java than anything)

You can run c# programs on Linux using Mono - I must admit my ignorance on how much of it is supported.

If you want to write properly cross platform c or c++, you should only use ANSI c or c++ . These you can find out about from google.

As for books, it'll depend on the style of book you like - I'm always pretty keen on O'Reilly's stuff, though they may be a little dry for some. Kernighan & Ritchie's "The C language" is the bible for C and Stroustrop's "The C++ Programming Language" perfoms a similar role for C++.

Hey, thanks for the tips. Are you experienced with Visual Basic? I am also looking for a book to help me with writing help files for VB. I have the book "Beginning VB.Net" from WROX but it does touch on the subject. For some reason my early searches on the topic are all failing.

Best regards,

Kevin Tough

Kevin maybe you should try the forum for "Beginning VB.Net". someone there may be able to answer your question, since this forum is mainly for Linux and not Windoze questions.
