I recently started to get into programming and I understand the basics of the programming language. I figured I should get some experience with the C programming language and the others will be easy to learn. Right now I am reading the "C programming language Ansi C" by Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie because they had such a high rating on amazon for beginners like me. I also want to get hands on experience and I was wanting if somebody would recommend me a open source project that uses C language. I am not at the level where I can contribute but I do certainly want to get my feet wet and have a look at the bigger picture.
