For a beginner learning C- is it OK to use old text books?
I want to begin learning C. I realize there are lots of resources online as well as books available to learn C. My question is- would it create problems for me to use older textbooks? I have several older C programming books from the early nineties, they teach ANSI compliant C. Have the rules or style changed enough that these old books should not be used?
I sometimes find that older books seem better written- in some cases they have better or more varied and detailed examples. But I don't want to confuse myself with obsolete code examples or style. Would code written 20 years ago be _wrong_ or unacceptable? Or would the diffferences only be minor stylistic differences that won't matter in learning the basics?
I'm not suggesting that I won't _also_ use modern sources. I'm just asking if I should avoid using older books.
