    Wat else should i do????

    Firstly i will tell you what my problem is:
    " I have done quite a bit of C ,i ve been programming for like 6 months and i am soo much in love with C that i want to learn more and more and more...."

    Here comes the problem :
    I don't have a proper guidance at the university i am studying, so my only hope is you guys..
    I have read K&r C and Yashwanth Kanethkar.....
    I want to move on to higher levels such as IPC programming,Sockets and any thing and any stuff that is C such as interfacing....

    I want to hone my skills and I would be really grateful to you if you can guide me in this aspect....Suggest me any books and what type of stuff to move onto..

    I can write upto the level of DATASTRUCTURE programs...

    Thanking you in anticipation.....
    yours faithfully

    Go through K&R a number of times....you'll learn something new each time (at least, I did)

    cheers

    Assign yourself a project that would find use of all the features you might want to practice. Also that will help you with organizing growing and more complex source codes.
    Of the most demanding in every area of skill projects are games.
    On books, i would recommend you have a look on the series of "The Art of Computer Programming" by Donald Knuth. You should have it at the university library. It is 3 volumes, extensive and teaches programming which is much more valuable than just knowing "C".
    Also Knuth has a very unique style in writting that makes reading his books even amusing.

    Happy training!
    Code:
    ...
        goto johny_walker_red_label;
    johny_walker_blue_label: exit(-149$);
    johny_walker_red_label : exit( -22$);
    A typical example of ...cheap programming practices.

    We don't know everything and I don't know how much I can recommend to you.
    I did it the hard way - experiment, experiment, experiment. Teach myself, all the way. Haven't read many books. And sockets I know nothing about.
    Plus C is not my area. I'm a C++ dev, not C. And further, I don't use raw Win32, I use MFC.
    So don't expect that everyone can help you. Everyone has different ways.

    Outside of your DOS world, your header file is meaningless.

    You should talk!

    I spent a good deal of time improving your Sudoku start on a program, and posted it back on 2-15 in the C++ forum, where your thread was.

    You never even bothered to read it, although you were here on the board, and posting otherwise.

    I don't recommend you finish the Sudoku program, however. It's too advanced. I did think you would learn a bit by comparing your original, with my improved version of it.

    Here's a good project: You're the president at the local college, and you need a simple database of your students. You need to add, delete, display and edit the records, of course.

    You also want to be able to display them by group: grade level, major, sex, etc. Since your time must be efficiently used, you want your database to do these things as fast as possible, but have the prompts worded and displayed, so you never get confused about how to navigate around in the database, and work.

    That's a great little project, imo.
