If you mean this to be an answer to the OP, then it makes no sense. With no X installed, how would you research CLI tutorials, manuals, etc.?

Or perhaps you mean don't install X, so you are forced to use the CLI??? OK--if you want to learn to walk, don't buy a car...

So--you wnat to learn bash and C ..and C++.. all at the same time......Sounds like a recipe for brain damage....

One good book is "Beginning Linux Programming" from Wrox

Indeed, having no X on the system means you are FORCED to use the CLI. You are FORCED to learn, or you can't use your system. How you'd research CLI tutorials? Who needs CLI tutorials? People learned their way around the command line long before millions of useless articles with the exact same topic appeared : "LOL! most 10 used commands in linux!! gots to read this if u r newbie from windows roflmfao". Such tutorials are harmful. First of all people who are absolutely new to linux write them because they need to prove to themselves they have "skills", and 2nd of all they are "minimal" from an informative point of view. How are you going to research manuals? Easy. Don't know how to use `ls`?

Code:
man ls
Etc. RTFM works, well.

If you're unfamiliar with *nix, most man pages aren't much help.
