    no need to buy a book - there a thousands of tutorials - admittadly the majority of them crap and not worth the virtual paper they are typed on.

    start with the tutorials from this board
    and this book site

    hey iain that site is cool, lots of free and useful stuff...how did you find the site?

    But i still think that a book is better, it summarizes a programming language in a chapter by chapter form. Anyway.

    GCC is a good one. A good compiler package can be downloaded from:

    www.delorie.com/djgpp/

    There are some good books. The C Programming Language from Kernighan&Ritchie is my favourite. Though some people say it's not a good book for new programmers. But I think it's a good book to learn C.
