    programming tutorials


    i am looking for tutorials on programming. not syntaxt of languages but programming as such.

    i would like to as my first bigger program to try and write a small commandline editor like nano. just more simple and i need some tutorials on how to write a editor in c.

    i am studying c programming on my own and i do it only as hobby so i have no one to ask for adwise and help other than the few online forums i am registered at.

    thanks for the time.

    If you are wanted to create an editor I would suggest your C skills are pretty advanced.

    As for tutorials, google is your friend, and look in the folders of your editor. For example, DevC++ comes with a more or less complete working example of an editor C source included to browse at your lesuire.

    I would also thing platform dependant, some small knowledge of Windows programming could be a benefit too.

    Always avoid tutorials (by noobs for noobs)
    Buy (or DL) and read reference books.
    If you're on Windows, a basic editor is made in 2 minutes (or 2 seconds by copying one of the MSDN samples)

    A basic editor is not made in 2 minutes... Especially not without a GUI Framework.

    sorry i should have mentioned i am a debian/gnu linux user and the editor i am thinking about is a console application which i think could be done using ncurses. i amnot sure yet if thats the right approach as i did not learn ncurses yet and still just reading the documentation introduction.

    i am still not comfortable using c or at programming yet so i was looking for as many tutorials covering programming and not syntaxt as i already have many bookmarks covers the basic of the c language.

    i did learn some pascal a couple of years ago but just as i started to learn more than just basic syntaxt i got a four month long stay at the hospital and i did not really pick up programming before now again.

    i learn all by myself and i have the books the c programming language and the unix programming environment and the art of programming by brian w kernighan and i have a book from wrox called beginning linux programming .

    its all pretty heavy books that assumes some basic knowlegde and having learned some things like i suspect you can learn in computer class which i do not have any possible ways to find a place to study in a class or course .

    i been looking for books or online material that covers programming techniques and is written for students or newcomers to programming.

    thanks for the replies
