    Links to learn standard C library functions...

    Hi,

    I am nearly up to the point where i finish learning the basics syntax of C. But i can't do much with it at the moment. I need to know how to use the standard library functions. Can someone pls provide me with a link to a site or e-book which demostrates every function in the standard C library ? or at least their syntax ?

    thnx

    You'll have to pick up little bits from all over the place, I don't think there is a book or web site that focuses on how to use the standard library.

    A google search would work wonders though.

    The standard library isn't really something you learn, you just look it up. Really, if you want a book, get K&R. Most of the time I use that book, it's to look up their summary of some function in the Appendix. It's very short, but complete and unambiguous.

    This book's pretty good. Although it is a C++ book. But it covers all the standerd template libaries and also most of C++ (assuming you are already competent in C). The e-book is free but the answers will cost you. .. .
