    Smile Really Basic Newbie Help? Please? ;)

    Right, ok. I'm on a computing course, almost finished the first year, and we learnt the basics of C. We're doing more advanced C in the second year (well, the ones that choose the programming route), but I was just wondering if anyone knew any really good tutorials (bear with me..).

    I know there are loads of tutorials on this site, but they're mostly C++. I can't find any C tutorials

    I know the basics like printf, scanf, selection statements and so on, but there are a few things I'd really like to know more about.

    The main thing is Functions. We did cover them, but unlike the rest, I'm not too comfortable with how to use them :\

    Also, what kinds of programs can you make with C? Most of my programs I created during the course have been pretty much adding numbers together and producing an output, or entering strings (which is another thing I wanna learn more about) and outputting things.

    So what I need, is a really good tutorial for begginers learning C (not C++)

    Anyone got any?

    Try wrox press and download some code samples for the beginning C course. Study them, try them, or consider buying a C book. The faqs page here has some real goodies.

    http://www.wrox.com follow the link to downloads at the top menu

    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    how about going to the bookshop and looking for some C books?

    K&R The C programming Language is a nice book.
    there are only 10 people in the world, those who know binary and those who dont
