Good morning LQ.org, I just started learning BASH scripting a few months ago and would now like to start learning C and then PEARL. I am currently in school working towards my electrical engineering degree, just finished my AA for that, and know i will need C and possibly C++.
My personal reason for wanting to learn PEARL is to help me administer Linux servers better, my current job, and to write better scripts that are a bit more powerful then what BASH can do on its own.
What I am asking the LQ do you have any web pages and or books that you recommend for self teaching C? I have found a few web pages some better then others via google searching but they all seem to be leaving vital bits out of their tutorial. example they show me the basic C "hello world" type script, but then fail to tell me howto compile it so i can run it.
An other site tells me to build one way, then compile it as C++, um not what I am looking for.
Thank you in advance for your time and directions.
some of the sites i have found:
There was an other but it was so badly designed I could not follow.
