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

Or just use GTK in C++. It's perfectly valid to use C libraries from C++. Although, I personally liked using gtkmm better than GTK+ for what little I've done in either of them.

Ah ok...Well, I'm glad we both prefer GNOME, Nylex! Hehe...

Well, an extremely big thank you to everyone who's posted in this thread! I've decided to take up C, and once I've wet my feet enough in it, I'll move onto a more recent language. Thanks again!

J_K9: Thanks! I really like the Practical Programming Series, both are by the same author, Steve Ouallaine. His explanation is really good. The introductions in the 2 books are the same, and they both follow the same layout, but they are good learning/reference books. I don't think C++ teaches OO, but it might. I haven't had a huge amount of time to try and learn it, but I haven't seen anything about OOP in the C++ book.

The Deitel C/C++ book is pretty good. It's plenty of exercises. This book, and these by Richard Stevens could get you in the path to Unix nirvana:

* Advanced programming in the Unix environment
* Unix network programming (last edition) - Volumes I & II
* TCP/IP Illustrated Vol. 1

I'd suggest you learn C well before C++.
