C Tutorials


I took a class on C in my high school a couple years ago, and I'm itching to get back into it.  We went as far as functions.  I'm wondering if there are any tutorials that anyone would recommend that I could use to brush up on my skills and expand (quite) a bit.  I'm also going to be taking a C programming class for engineers when I go back to university.  Any pointers?

Brush up on them!  :lol:

From what I can remember, the trouble most people had in the Computer Architecture labs with C were pointers, arrays, memory allocation and casting (C will let you do whatever, but it might not work!)

Best way to brush up is to actually do some coding - grab gcc or some other C compiler (you can also set VC++ to only compile C code) and write a bunch of programs. Good places to start include Game of Life, Prime Numbers, String Encryption/Decryption
Another exercise we got students to do was to write a very simple processor simulator in C (and a basic assembler as well) - its not as hard as it sounds, and you can make it as complex as you want.


Depending what you want to read/do...
