    My learning proccess started

    Hi to everyone , i am new to this forum.I came here with hope of improving my knowledge on C/C++.I am software Engineering student and doing my 3rd yr now with 2 years left.I have 2 project semesters to come also.I want to do something very innovative but simple and useful to most people.So , i love to see the suggestion for project title or which kinda of project to take.


    But first , I need to learn.I am not very good or bad in both C and C++.I know basic things.But i am not good to play with C and C++ codes in all direction like reliable , efficient and secured source code writing.

    1) Can someone suggest me a book which teaches me C and helps me too.I expect good explanation in the book since it always helps in long term

    2)Is there is a way to search our system files and display the matching files , no.of files in the system drive(ex: in C drive , 33 .rar files) like that? any function available for doing this? can you say the function name? i read some books but i can't find any information regarding this.

    If there's one book you should own it's, K&R (second edition) aka "The C Programming language by Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie."

    Yes, see the FAQ. Don't expect some magical function that does all that though.

    I'm studying SE, and we don't talk fluff like that :\

    Cprogramming.com FAQ > Accessing a directory and all the files within it

    Presumably you'll want the last one, but the explanation at the top helps. To get the system drive go search MSDN (that will be fun if you've never done it before ).
