I haven't been on here in a while. I came here for help on C a very long time ago, and I tried writing a simple Hello World. I finally got it, but wasn't understanding. My thread went on forever that I didn't even bother trying anymore, so I gave up.
I want to try it again.
I am interesting in learning ANSI C, and once I learn that I want to learn ASM using the book called Write Great Code. I'll save that for the last. I have some questions.
I have a thread over at VBforums. I wasn't understanding the answers that the person gave. I'll ask my questions slowly on this forum.
1. Are pure C, and ANSI C the same, or different?
2. I asked on VBforums about the MinGW compiler being good to compile ANSI code. The person said no, but with programming/high level term words that I have no clue what the user said. I'll ask here. Would MinGW be a good ANSI compiler for a Windows 7 desktop PC?
3. Would C Primer Plus be a good book to learn ANSI from? I know that book is good for pure C, but I'm not sure about the ANSI part.
If anyone could get back to me, I would appreciate it.
