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.

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.
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:
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.
