    "C for dummies" and/or "C++ for dummies" helped me when I started out with C. Lots of good tutorials and best of all, checked the book out from the library so I didn't spend a dime.... (besides the late fee for having it out for 2 months.)

    Why not check our wonderful cprogramming.com for tutorials and suggestions?
    1. Get rid of gets(). Never ever ever use it again. Replace it with fgets() and use that instead.
    2. Get rid of void main and replace it with int main(void) and return 0 at the end of the function.
    3. Get rid of conio.h and other antiquated DOS crap headers.
    4. Don't cast the return value of malloc, even if you always always always make sure that stdlib.h is included.
