ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

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.

If your programming in C, you could have a look at the Linux Programmers Guide Chapter 8.3. This is a fairly short introduction and also quite old (last updated March 1996) but it's the one I use so it's a good start. What do you need to know exactly? I'm only starting to experiment with it myself so I don't know it too well but perhaps I can be of help.
(P.S. to Atrocity - "Mortal Enemy's" should be spelled "Mortal Enemies", it's a plural word, not a contraction).
Has anybody found this problem when compiling the second window example:
window_border2.c:16: error: two or more data types in declaration of `type name'
window_border2.c:93: error: two or more data types in declaration of `type name'
window_border2.c: In function `create_box':
window_border2.c:93: error: parameter name omitted
window_border2.c:102: error: syntax error before "_Bool"
window_border2.c: At top level:
window_border2.c:113: error: syntax error before "else"
window_border2.c:118: warning: parameter names (without types) in function declaration
window_border2.c:118: warning: data definition has no type or storage class
window_border2.c:120: error: syntax error before '}' token
Evey example worked up to this point. Any ideas why there is a failure in an example?
