Development work in C

[ #14785 ]
After having spent the last two days writing a heap of code in C to address performance issues, it struck me, I should really learn C properly one day. I saw this every time I have to do some C development work, but do I ever actually then sit down with a book and do some solid reading ...

C'est la vie

  • I highly recommend Stephen Prata's C Primer Plus. I also have his C++ Primer Plus. I've owned many C books, and his is by far the best IMHO.
  • If you've just written a heap of code, maybe you know it better than you think you do.

    Go read over The clc FAQ []. If there's a lot there you didn't know, then maybe you need some work. By the time you finish, you'll probably have a pretty good handle on C, actually.

    The only tricky thing about C is pointers, I think. I also think that understanding pointers is a pretty important thing to know. A good handle on this allows you to understand a lot of the exploits that are plaguing the industry.
