Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Back in the 80s Microsoft had a program called "Quick C" which worked nicely. It had a nice console with code fragments and commnd definitions. I bought it to do homework for a class in C. The contract changed and I never acutally used the knowledge and I would like to play around with it and come up to speed.
Any suggestions/Recommendations for such a Console/GUI frontend for the GCC compiler or any other more appropriate alternatives would be appreciated.
Thanks for your attention to this matter.
Bummer! Kdevelop wasn't working across the ssh so I removed it and installed emacs22gtk and executed it across the shell -- can't figure out how to exit/quit
CTRL X, CYTL q, CTRL c, :q all seem to fail to exit the emacs program
opened a second copy of putty and tried kill emacs and it sort of laughed at me.
F1 aquit shows a number of arcane structures (M-n, ESC q etc) none of which seem to close down emacs.
Any help with a keystroke sequence to close down emacs from within emacs would be appreciated. (Something other than shutdown -r now :-))
I noticed what appeared to be a tutorial in emacs any help with keystrokes to open up the tutorial sould also be apprieciated
Thanks for the response I just power cycled the pc :-)
Any idea on how to execute the internal tutorial within emacs?
emacs looks like a great programming system for a sighted guy who already knows the commands and syntax that he needs
What I need is something that gives me code fragments for cut and paste and syntax checking.
I'm semi blind and can no longer read at a high reading retention rate so I'm looking for ways to compensate.
Any good gui frontends for C will be appreciated
I have just gotten back into programming, this time under linux, I have VS 2008 on my XP boot so I am spoiled BUT...to answer your question there is nothing even remotely like what you are looking for, a integrated IDE for linux, maybe someone should write one (hint). All the tools are there but nothing to integrate them into a cohesive whole. I am using Anjunta and its pretty nice, you can install some addins that give you auto formating and an auto make and debugging, so its almost an IDE, but doesnt have all the help files and other extras like you would get with something like Visual C++.
Thanks for the response. I will probably wind up with kdevelop. I had downloaded it at the suggestion of an earlier poster and discarded it out of my own ignorace. I reloaded it using synaptics and it looks like it may approach the functionality of the old microsoft product QuickC.
I got stuck in a class on C and the instructor just said get quickC and do all of the problems at the back of every chapter and turn them in for extra credit. Worked great. I did all the problems in the book and all the problems he handed out as homework. The Quick C environment handled error checking, compilation and documentation. Got credit with High Honors. (I give all the credit for that to the authors of Quick C) :-)
And this is exactly why I say - don't *ignore* Microsoft and call them names like "macroshaft" etc etc. - *some* of their stuff works and does so well - it's a problem we need to *address*, not shy away from.
