The C Programming Language and the Rest

I am still styding the C Programming Language Book. My aim is to complete the book ( with a good number of iterations) and solve all the problems in the book.
At the end of it, I have to write a small editor.
After this is completed, I have to give my RHCE exam.
For the 11th hour preparation for RHCE, I came across thid link today,posted in our internal groups.
But,priority to the C Learning First.

Hi Senthil,

I have started to learn C programming too. I am referring Stephen Kochan's ANSI C programming and Herb Schildt's C++ the complete reference books.

I have really started to like C. It's flexibility and power has swept me of my feet.

Nice to see your posting...

Good luck !!

Hi Harsha,
nice to meet you.
As soon as you are done with ANSI C book, _do_ carry on with the The C Programming Language by K&R.
This is a masterpiece.
And as I know, Herb Schield's C++ could be a good reference, I would like to start with Whos Afraid of C++.

Thank you.

Regards,
Senthil

Hi Senthil,

Thanks for the suggestion and nice to meet you too. I will check out K&R's C programming book. I currently use a little Perl in my job. Mostly it is data analysis related.

Is working lots of examples the best way to grasp the basics of C ? I do some examples while I learn.

I am not inclined as much towards C++ as much as C. I really want to learn C very well and do a project, I am not yet sure what.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks !!
Harsha.

Hi Harsha,
I have always found that solving the problems in the book is the best way of understanding the concepts.
I did so while at college with Yashwant Kanetkars book and even doing now with K&R :)

Harsha, if you write some code feel free to share with me, my email id is senthil_or with domain dell.com
I would be glad to look at it :)
And I have just putup some of my other thoughts/readings in my blog like this.
hope that is useful to you as well:)

Cheers!
Senthil
