    Question Any good books on C ?

    Hi
    I was wondering if there is any good books on C programming (new to it) and I want to learn. Also is there any books out there that shows you how to make window apps in C, most show you coding through msdos, which is great, but I was also wondering if there is any that shows you how to make apps also.
    Newbie question
    Thanks in advance

    There are lots of good books on C. Just search google for them. Some sights will have reviews of different books. I've seen a few sites with book reviews, I think www.programmersheaven.com is one of them. If you're looking for doing windows in C, just look for windows programming books, most likely the book will use C as its programming language. If you have the time, nothing beats a good half or whole hour at the bookstore. Just spend a little time with each book, reading the intro or first couple pages, and get a feel for which ones you like the most.

    ACCU. If you're just starting out then you should stick to highly recommended books.
    My best code is written with the delete key.

    While it might not be the thing for a beginner, if you at all want to understand C well, you must eventually read the bible, K&R's "The C Programming Language".

    I have that book. Too terse and cryptic for a beginner.

    I am using C How To Program (3rd Edition) by Deitel & Deitel. I like these authors. I have several of their books like Java, C++, E-Commerce Programming, & Perl.

    I have many books on C++ but only one book on C.

    I think it is a great if you can have the 13 years of C/C++ Users Journal CD Release 3 - January 1990 through December 2002. I bought this CD 2 days ago. Very good. I am copying this into my Pocket PC to read this book on the train & bus.

    It is great to have Pocket PC! With it I can finished a 400 pages book on ASP.net in just one week.
