I'm a newbie to C. Just wondering if i can create input forms in C.

Can i also work with C and MySQL?? as in can i build a system using C and MySQL

I guess what i'm asking is what are the effective uses of C as a programming language apart from systems programming??

Yes to all your questions. C is a general purpose programming language.

C is indeed a general use language. It can be used to write most things.
