I got a lot of good, and some bad, advice early on, but on a very small project the difference between the two is often not obvious. I guess what I'm trying to say is, learning C by working on Angband would have been a lot better than starting with "hello world".

In my experience the hardest thing is downloading the environment, and the project, and getting the environment to compile the project successfully, and then uploading any changes you may make to the project.

Once you can do that, the rest is pretty easy.

You people and your "environment"s and "IDE"s.[/curmudgeon] Don't those have a tendency to hide things from you and so are really bad to start with? :/

When I say IDE, I really mean compiler. I write code in Notepad++. If my IDE does other stuff, I'm largely unaware of it.

Not really, IMO. The old style text-editor is so far behind in many respects that you're really just reducing your productivity by not using an IDE. Especially symbol lookup and "find usages" style functionality is immensely improved for C++ code in IDEs that actually understand the code (not just on a superficial level as in "ctags"). This has been the case since Clang integration became a thing for C/C++ IDEs. My current favorite is QtCreator, but I mostly work in C++, so YMMV.

Hmm, IDEs. I use Geany myself, but not its full set of features, and it lacks a lot of high-end IDE features anyway; more a matter of learning curve than anything else. If you're a newbie, you should probably install Code::Blocks or such, the better to learn a more powerful tool.

Or so I would think...

a book can help,,

but really, u just need 2get started~

no abuse please but i suggest learn c++ instead!!

i began programming on an implementation of basic,,, i think this helped me prepare for learning c(++)

wat/how u should learn also depends on wat u want 2 do,

but dont be afraid my friend, if u r determined, there are more than enough resources available for free, online, 2 get u going and going far..

dont give up~
