Learn C Programming

By: Jeff Szuhay

Overview of this book

C is a powerful general-purpose programming language that is excellent for beginners to learn. This book will introduce you to computer programming and software development using C. If you're an experienced developer, this book will help you to become familiar with the C programming language. This C programming book takes you through basic programming concepts and shows you how to implement them in C. Throughout the book, you'll create and run programs that make use of one or more C concepts, such as program structure with functions, data types, and conditional statements. You'll also see how to use looping and iteration, arrays, pointers, and strings. As you make progress, you'll cover code documentation, testing and validation methods, basic input/output, and how to write complete programs in C. By the end of the book, you'll have developed basic programming skills in C, that you can apply to other programming languages and will develop a solid foundation for you to advance as a programmer.

There are many books available for all levels of C programming skill. These can be found on the Stack Overflow website at

A note about Stack Overflow: I have found that most of the answers to questions available on the Stack Overflow website are often useful starting points; very rarely have I ever gotten a complete or totally correct answer from that site. It is useful, to be sure. Take what you find there and run the programs in your environment. Modify the solutions to your situation. But do not stop there. Most often, you will learn about something you had never considered—when that happens, keep questioning and experimenting for yourself.

On the other hand, I have also learned things from Stack Overflow that I'd never even considered before. So, it can be a rich and useful resource if approached carefully.
