"Finding the smallest program that demonstrates the error" is a powerful debugging tool.

    I prefer this boards FAQs information. I think it's a great help especially to someone who like me is fairly new to C programming

    I'm annoyed that there is no explicitly stated goal for this tutorial. It reads more like a textbook, but it's incomplete. It's almost as if the author is parroting someone else's writing, or he left his notes for people to browse. Not saying that it's unhelpful, but not something I would recommend. Everyone has a different way of notetaking after all.

    Out of scope
    The author of the website already advertised this link here and if I recall we criticized its quality quite deeply. ... and yet, it seems he still has not fixed his syntax errors, which can be found even in his "first C program" tutorial. Honestly, I could care less about how well a tutorial is structured and explained if the information itself is not correct. Though, I wouldn't even say that the quality of the structure and explanation is even on par in this case.

    I think Nelson DeMille is a pretty good writer, but I wouldn't want him teaching me how to assemble a nuclear warhead.

    For BASIC and ADVANCED account servers, to avoid your server down, you can set up 24x7 monitoring. Login to your account and click monitoring check box in 7x24 MONITORING.
    LOL. Classic.

    I dont know if it has been shared already in this forum, but honestly I'd say that I could be able to clear few concepts after taking a look on few topics.

    May be, the author have copied the contents from somewhere else but really the work is greatly appreciated.
    by the way, its recommendation are not bad like using GCC compiler and IDEs instead of text editor!!!

    If this was the thread everyone believes is about the same thing again (I thought it was too at first glance) you may be wrong, the first one was previously hosted at the same place I think, hence the similarity.

    If they are different (one may be abandoned), the first one sadly did not take my recommendation about adding some some honest credentials, which this current storehouse of knowledge at least does under "contact", which is to say the site is by a college student in their final year, and obviously they learned as much as you might realistically expect, and I guess the site then may reflect some general knowledge but perhaps not a completely to be trusted authority.

    That is just backward! The IDE's I've looked at seem very focussed on the maintenance of large projects -- you do not really need a makefile for anything under 50000 bytes in C unless you are just tooling around, and 50000 bytes of code is a lot. That most real programming is probably done by people with years of professional experience who might desire and benefit from such contraptions makes sense, but I don't think they should be sold that way to beginners. Start by learning to use the compiler with a decent, code oriented text editor in the simplest configuration you can for your environment. You can always learn the art of the IDE later.

    [edit] no those two sites are from the same source, one is a re-write of the other

    C programming resources:
    GNU C Function and Macro Index -- glibc reference manual
    The C Book -- nice online learner guide
    Current ISO draft standard
    CCAN -- new CPAN like open source library repository
    3 (different) GNU debugger tutorials: #1 -- #2 -- #3
    cpwiki -- our wiki on sourceforge
