    What to do next

    Hello,

    I've done some programming at uni. This involved making an ftp brute force attack program which ran through a list of usernames/passwords to get into a ftp server. Also programming scsi mmc commands to access a rom drive.

    My degree is in computer forensics. What would be a good area to look into regarding learning c programming on windows?

    I suppose what I mean is, what is the next step after learning the basic syntax?

    Thanks.

    Well if you want to code GUI's and stuff, you have multiple opportunities:
    - Win32 API: theForger's Win32 API Tutorial ;
    - GTK Framework (platform independent) ;
    - Qt Framework (platform independent, but C++ only) .
    Operating Systems:
    - Ubuntu 9.04
    - XP

    Compiler: gcc

    What would you recommend between winapi and GTK?

    If you plan to never write software for anything but windows, use winapi.

    If you want to write software that can be used, eg, on Macs, linux, etc, and windows, use GTK.
    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
