In reading recent threads the impression I get is that the best way to learn C is to learn C as in the C that when compiled will run on a PC (versus learning C that runs on an embedded processor).
I have seen references in the past here to free versions of the Borland Turbo C compiler for the PC. I Googled and found an address (for the Borland compiler) but it ends up (after a very long wait) giving me the "Page not found" message.
Is there another free compiler out there? Will I need an old DOS PC to use this compiler (versus running it on an XP machine)? I have the K&R book along with several others meant to teach PC style C programming (several years old I might add - been meaning to learn but now I >>really<< see the need...what can I say, I am a slow learner :wink: ). I also have been saving the links posted here to C tutorials etc.
Anyway, I have been searching on and off all morning and the only thing I have accomplished is to become frustrated. If it ends up I need to purchase something then I will do that...I just don't know what to get.
I know the free PC compilers have been covered here before, I just don't know what terms to use to narrow the hits to a manageable level.
Thanks in advance :!:
