Hi Sourav
I am a complete novice to programming and want to learn C. I have the following books: SAMS C in 21 days, C for Dummies and Let Us C. Some queries:
1. Where can I get a compiler that is easy to install and run?
2. Can you suggest any other really simple books/CDs to learn C from?
3. What is the general impression of SEED Infotech's (Pune) modular courses in the C language?

Thanks a ton in advance. BTW, I assemble my own gaming rigs so am not a total stanger to PCs only to programming... I would be really grateful if you could write to me at mvjoshi69@gmail.com

Regards,

Maneesh

Hello Manish
First post...Welcome to the forums...:)

I assume you use Microsoft Windows OS. I suggest you the mingw compiler. It's gcc for Windows and is one of the best.
http://www.mingw.org/

Since you want an easy to use program, I guess you mean an IDE.
I suggest you Geany. It's easy to use and supports a variety of languages.
http://www.geany.org/
http://www.geany.org/Support/RunningOnWindows

When you have both installed post again and I will tell you how to set up Geany for compiling C.

Best of Luck.

Yes. Most definitely.
You need for learning C:
(1) A computer with an OS like Linux, FreeBSD, Windows, OSX, etc.
(2) A compiler, Use a modern compiler. See my above post.
(3) Look for resources for learning C. The OP has few resources.
(4) And don't hesitate in asking questions if you have doubt (in this forum for eg.)

If you are new to programming and dont have compulsion for C/C++(for eg. in a course), I strongly suggest you learn Python instead of C. After you learn Python then go for C.

------------------
About setting up Geany for C in Windows:
Open Geany.
Create a New File.
Save it as anyfile.c (you can have any name but keep .c as extension)
Now Go To Build->Set Includes and Arguments.
Now Set the following fields as:
Compile: gcc -Wall -ansi -pedantic -c "%f"
Build: gcc -Wall -ansi -pedantic "%f" -o "%e.exe"
Execute: "./%e"

Now you can use F8 key to compile, F9 to make and F5 to execute.

P.S. The -ansi and -pedantic options are not required as such unless you want strict ANSI compliance, You can do away with them.
