C or C++ when making GTK applications


I'm going to learn myself how to make GTK-applications. Should I use C or C++?

I'm going to use Glade for the UI, and Glade supports C and C++.

I've just heard that C is best to use with GTK...?

GTK is actually written in and for C. There are wrappers for just about every language under the sun. I've used GTKMM (the C++ wrappers for GTK) and found it to be fairly simple to pick up. I chose C++ because I'm a more competant C++ programmer than C programmer and as I'm primarily a Java programmer I found the object oriented nature of C++ more suiting to my programming style.

I think I will go for C then.

Can anyone recommend a book about C that is available on the internet?

GTK reference from gtk.org is best. There's also a tutorial, good for beginning, but you'll need the reference very soon.

Try to get Kerninghan & Ritchie C book. Should be in (nearly) every library.

There are really many online C books, but I can't say how good they are when you're learning.
