Good way to get started with C?
Im trying to learn C, but I have a bit of a problem.
Following books tends to become extremely boring after a while, since in every book I've seen, you write about 100 "Hello World!" type programs, then the book is over, while this gives some theoretical knowledge, it doesn't exactly tell how to do something with this knowledge.
What Im looking for is a project to get me started, the problem is, I dont know what would be a good project to start out with.
So, does anyone have any suggestions about what would make a good project, something that will take a bit of time and effort, but not something that complex enough to just scare me away from C alltogether.
Im working with UNIX all day long at work, and I'll be doing the programming under Linux, and my programming skills strech as far as writing "Hello World" programs in C/C++.
Thanks a bunch.
