  • I feel like we're pretty much in the same boat: I do not like C, I prefer to stay away from it as much as possible. It's a difficult language, and it seems to me like the bulk of the work by P5P is working around nonportability issues of C. If I can, I'd like to spend the little time I have on other things.

    But sometimes you just have to bite the bullet.

    So... how do you like the Cow book? Is it worth picking up?

    (Other people may reply too :))
    • The Cow book's decent. If you already have some familiarity with C, you might not learn a lot of new things.

      I'm enjoying Robert Love's Linux Kernel Programming (even though it has a slightly more Linux than POSIX bent, it's good for Unix-like system programming in general, if you read past the titular bias) and found the GDB coverage of C in a Nutshell very worthwhile.
