Hi anuja!

I guess you should learn Python and Pearl, because scripts on these languages are used frequently on Linux Systems.
And a simple look in Shell will be be very useful for you, to understand somethings on your Linux.

Of course, learning C you will understand how the Linux was written, and its very very very interesting =D

I hope this helps you!

Since the OP doesn't seem to have any upper case on his/her keyboard, I will guess that it is lower case for "N/wig".

Forgive my ignorance, but what's N/wig? It's not easily googleable.

Knowing and properly understanding C is a good foundation. You should take a tour of a howto on kernel development, then maybe LFS (Linux From Scratch), whilst also looking at perl, python and maybe tcl...

"N/wig": That was supposed to be a facetious comment. Sorry. I'll let someone more skilled do the funny stuff.

Which area within networking do you want to program in? Each language has its own design goals and hence strengths (performance, ease/speed of writing/debugging/maintaining/understanding ...) which suits it to various problem domains. Within "network programming" a language which is well suited for a hardware-interfacing driver would not be the first choice for automating systems administration tasks.

You might want to read this:

Beej's Guide to Network Programming

It's for C, but sockets work the same way in every language and framework.

This also covers network programming, along with a lot more:

Twisted

And the Twisted folks in our Python meetup group would tell you to look at Twisted because of all it can do in very few lines of code. A lot of what you want to do depends on the language constraint and the age and use factor of the language.

I needed to write a http socket call that resulted in data transfer, not for document rendering. I had to look a lot of places to find a basic socket call written in C. I could not use another language. Informix 4GL only builds with C.

Indeed good sir. I also suggest that (at the same time) the OP also starts taking Flute, Piano and Violin lessons and begins learning French, Japanese and Ndebele (learning to tap dance might also prove worth while). Time is of the essence.
