Waiting for the feedback of all the members and would be really happy if you would carry on adding more links to this thread so that a newbie would not have to search a lot on the net regarding how to start on C.

I have been using a computer for sometime but never had time to learn programming. On retirement I now plan to try my hand on programming.
Some browsing gives me an idea (may be incorrect) that I strat straightway with "C" as it is a mid-level language and also I have the book "C for Dummies" with me.
Is my plan OK or shall I try some other language wither a book on that ?
Also I shall be obliged if somebody can give a short guide from this thread Starting " C "
I saw forum Java, after read totural Java, i wonder while...if you want to learn java successfully, you need to study C firstly.
I am a beginner, i want to have a good knownledge about IT. I am going to begin from here;)
Thanks for you help, guy!
Even after starting C, most books (or links) only say what we should do. But the user(for me example) remains ignorant about the "DO NOTS", and by mistake, might indulge into the wrong programming practices. This link will surely help.
am beginner and i don't really know how to start learning C, but i've got motivation, to learn it. reading your comments guys, i guessed it's not easy to learn it but i'll try to do my best ..
I may well have to learn C and/or C++, run as an interpreter on Excel spreadsheets
( though not ChExcel or anything downloadable from the net ).
First question is the relationship between C and C++.
I understand that C++ is a 'superset' of C.
Does this mean it is possible to study C FIRST and THEN 'add' C++ ?
( Rather than learn how to do something one way with C and then learn a different way for C++ ) .
Second, what, if anything, is the significance of using an interpreter rather than a compiler ? Thanks.
It's nice only if you also like driving a Model-T automobile made 100 years ago.
Orwell is the current and maintained build of Dev-C++. If we were talking about the Bloodshed build I'd agree with you, but for those who like the Dev-C++ IDE, Orwell is a decent modern choice that won't hold you back.
I have recently learnt C in my course. It is a base language. If you want to learn c with the base then E balagurursamy is the best writer for it. And never depend on only one source. Instead of search it on many websites then prepare your notes. You will get very nice matter.
Hey C is not used so much now a days. But it is a mother language. For example: at first we learn abcd means alphabets to play(learn) with english. Same here, when we learn other computer languages the basic fundas of that language comes from c. This is my experience because now i m learning data structures and c++ then the fundamental theme comes from c

It's probably used more than you think. ;) Also, C is closer to the middle of the programming language family tree. When speaking of languages in that subtree, the primary parent is ALGOL. Though it's not unreasonable to call C a parent as it's probably the most pervasive parent.
