I'm using Kernighan and Ritchie's "The C Programming Language."
I'm quite lost on how you go about learning this language.
I'm not sure if any of you have used this book, but so far, it doesn't seem the book lets you do any practice coding. One of the exercises states "run the "hell, world" program on your system."
I probably sound so stupid, but how do I do that?
IMO; Kernighan and Ritchie's "The C Programming Language." is best used as a reference text not a beginners guide. It assumes you know how to compile and run your programs. Today, there exist so much stuf on beginning c on internet, google! I've used Deitel's "how to program in c" and its a good book for a gentle introduction.
