    Question database program help

    Alright, I'm a newbie to C programming and I need some guidence. I want to make a database program to store and catagorize diseases with their descriptions, a picture of the disease, history of the disease and symptoms of the disease. I would like it where the user could search for the disease of choice and it have a search result page and everything. I just want to know the basic script to use to make a database program.. if you understand what I mean.. remember, I'm a newbie, I really have no idea what I'm doing.. lol, help a guy out. Thanks

    Then you should start with something easier.

    I'll post one more to this question, and comment on a few of your questions.

    > I want to make a database program to store and catagorize diseases with their descriptions
    Woah, slow down.
    Start with, "Hello World", first.
    Search for some indepth tutorials at:
    Programmer's Heaven
    or
    Read 1,000+ tutorials
    Look at lots of example code, do alot of reading, researching, and "watching on" first. Then take a whack at coding.

    > a picture of the disease
    Normally this wouldn't be too hard..

    That's a HUGE program. We're talking way over 1k in lines.

    Try asking Google for this:
