Thanks, I've decided to go ahead and start with C, and branch from there. Any particular free tools y'all recommend for learning C?
There are several web sites with free tutorials. Just google "language
tutorial," and you'll get several. It's hard to recommend one, since I'm not sure of your current level of expertise and what would be most appropriate.
If you're going to learn C, you really need to get a copy of K&R. Also known as The C Programming Language
, the bible for C. Not sure it's worth the current price (nearly $50), though - hit the used book stores. Back in the day, I got mine new
for less than $15. Free PDF versions are floating around out there, too, but I expect those are all pirated copies.
