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.

I am learning C from Deitel C How to Program C, 6th Edition. There are things that go forward without explanation, or maybe I just missed it when I stepped out for fresh air, blinked, whatever.
In fig 6.3, line 20 what does printf ("%7d%13d\n",i,[I]); , or
The previous line 16
printf("%s%13s\n", "Element", "Value", although this one is easier to understand, because you can see the print out below it on p.166, it is still ambiguous to someone that is new.
What would work for me is to have someone go over ea. line word for word , statement for statement, function by function, loop for loop, explain every step of the way in a human language, preferably English.
Thanks, for the quick response. I wish I had someone to walk me through this, every function, argument, loop, recursion, iteration, etc., translate it all into English, you know read the code to English, that would be awesome,
that is something called learning curve I think. You need to have practice by writing code and checking it and understanding. You can ask any time here if something is unclear (a specific case), but not in general. Just do it like you did yesterday....
