Needed - Free ebooks for C and C++


Hello Friends,
Till now I have written C / C++ programs for DOS and windows only. But as my interest is growing day by day towards Linux, I want to code some stuf for Linux too. I have got a lot of ebooks for C++ (including C++ by Bjarne Stroustrup). But I need to start with some simple stuff.
Can anyone suggest me a link to some free ebook which is focussed specially for C/C++ on Linux. If anyone can mail me the book, i will be gratefull. A link to the book will also be good as I am always online.

Hi -

The mechanics of compiling and debugging code, and the specifics of one or another library, are strikingly similar between Windows, Linux ... and yes, even DOS. Windows has a much nicer IDE (if you've got the $$$, you don't mind vendor lock-in, and you're into that kind of thing); Linux has a lot more breadth and "exciting stuff going on" (IMHO).

But what you *really* want is to learn how to "play" the language like a musical instrument. And frankly, with C++ (much like with the violin or the trumpet), it's a lot easier to do it wrong than to do it right.

Which is a long way of saying that you might find this on-line resource especially rewarding:

'Hope that helps .. PSM

if you dig around on prentice halls website they have alot of their books available for download

and I also second the mention of bruce eckel's website, awesome books to be available for free.

and google can find a ton of ebooks hidden around the web. just about any book you want is out there, though not always legal. but i feel a try before you buy is not neccessarily bad, i have purchased alot of books i would not have if i had not been able to browse first.
