Hey everyone, I have programmed in Java for 2.5 years (prior to last year which I did no programming, because I did the gr 12 course in grade 11 and there weren't any more courses for me to do in grade 12). Next year I will be going to Univ. of Toronto for Engineering Science, and in the computers course I will be programming in C. I decided I wanted to get a head start this summer, using online tutorials and playing around with the language, which I figure shouldn't be too difficult to do. The problem is I need to get started. What compiler do you guys use and also what programs do you recommend for text editing when writing C? For Java I used an IDE called "Eclipse", and I found a C plugin for it but to be honest I have no idea how to use this. Also, what is the basic structure of a C program? In java all you needed for hello world was your .java file, which could be put through the Java compiler and run. In Eclipse when I told it to create a new C project it created multiple file extensions, and I must say I was somewhat confused. Thanks!
