Top 10 C Language resources


People consider computer programming a little tiresome but some find it more enjoyable. Every programmer has to keep up with the latest trends coming in the programming languages. Most of the programmers start programming in C as it is the most commonly used programming language for writing operating systems and applications.

If you are reading this article, most probably you are already a programmer or want to become a programmer. Luckily, you are on the right place because in this article I have gathered C programming websites/tutorials that can help you becoming a good C programmer. These websites/tutorials will help you to learn basics as well as advance programming techniques in C language.

1.      C Programming Notes

These notes are part of the UW Experimental College course on Introductory C Programming. They are based on notes prepared (beginning in Spring, 1995) to supplement the book The C Programming Language, by Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie, or K&R as the book and its authors are affectionately known.

2.      Programming in C – UNIX System Calls and Subroutines using C.

David Marshall’s ‘Programming in C’ tutorial covers application design, UNIX system calls  and subroutines using C programming language.

3.      C Lesson by Chris Sawtell

This archive contains a complete course for you to learn the ‘C’ computer language itself. The language used is correct conversational English. The author has written the lessons using the same language constructions which I would use if I were teaching you directly.

4.      comp.lang.c Frequently Asked Questions

Steve Summit maintains a FAQ for the C language, which he’s also published in a book “C Programming FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions” (Addison-Wesley, 1995, ISBN 0-201-84519-9).

5.      Collection of C programming material at Lysator Society

There is an electronic collection of C programming material at Lysator Society website. Lysator is an academic computer society located at Linköping University in Linköping, Sweden.

6.      A collection of useful libraries written in C

This is a catalog of useful free software/libraries that runs under free operating systems — particularly the GNU operating system and its GNU/Linux variants.

7.      The C Programming Language Standard

ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22/WG14 is the international standardization working group for the programming language C.

8.      High-level and Low-level Programming in C

You can extend the C programming language with certain utilities and idioms to get some the features of a “high-level” programming language. Also, you can bypass some of C’s regular features to get direct access to low-level capabilities.

9.      Microsoft C Language Reference

The C Language Reference describes the C programming language as implemented in Microsoft C. The book’s organization is based on the ANSI C standard with additional material on the Microsoft extensions to the ANSI C standard.

10.  Online C/C++ Tutorials and Documentation

This page contains some links to free electronic documentation, guides, tutorials, references, Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), books on C and C++. (
