As I wrote in the title: I want to learn programming. Ive worked a little with both html and javascript but not much.
First I decided which language to learn and after some browsing on different pages I chosed C.
My problem however, is to find a tutorial which doesnt assume Ive worked with programming before or are studying programming at school. They also use a complicated language while Im just a swede.

Does anyone know about a tutorial which may fit me or wants to teach me yourself? The tutorial Im currently using is at this URL: http://members.tripo...m/~johnt/c.html

I also wants to know what program(s) is required to create a new program.

Thanks

Nice selection...C is the easy programming language for the begginners and gives you foundation for all other complex programming languages.

The link you had given is not good for beginners of C. Thats assuming some familiarity with programming. And that terrible red background color...blocked my mind for some time. Don't stress your eyes too much at that site. :)

Google for ebooks about C language, you'll find many. Or if you want online versions....just look at this....
C language tutorial. Thats looking good and doesn't assume any previous programming language I think. Just go through that to find out whether its easy for you or not. If I find any other good sites I will post them here...

Anyway whatever tutorial you chose....just practice and post any problems or doubts you face....many members are here to answer your doubts gladly(including me, of course).... :)

Any code editor will do. I prefer crimson editor, I don't know if it's good for C but I like the simple interface. You can also use notepad++ (both crimson editor and notepad++ are freeware) or you can use paid software, wich I don't recommend because you'll probably find them worse than freeware.

And you can find a lot of tutorials in basically any language you want, I found C tutorial in finnish so you should be able to find swedish too. Just use google/other search engines to find a tutorial where things are explained from top to bottom and easy to read.

I didnt get along with C, but you will also need a compiler. A compiler is a small program that turns the code you write into binary (EG 1001001101101101) for the computer to understand.

You should be able to find a free compiler if you search "C compiler" on google

I just did a reply on another board with a link to a Free online book titled Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs. This is the text book for an introductory course in programming used at MIT. It rather heady and uses LISP not C. But, it teaches Programming not just a language but how programs actually work.

C is quite outdated. I don't know how you came to the decision to learn C, but you should know that C++ (a follow-up version of C) is easier to learn, is used in a lot more applications and is excellent for newbie programmers like you.

To create programs in C++ (but also in C, if you'll stick with your first option) I highly recommend Eclipse: http://www.eclipse.org/cdt/
It's a well-known IDE, it's free and it will be all you need to create programs.

And a quite nice C++ tutorial: http://www.cplusplus.com/doc/tutorial/

Problem with compilar.I Want To Learn Programming

Hello, All my friends, I just want to share my problem with you, about what compiler should be used. First of all I have already begun the C++ in DIT classes. But they just taught a short introduction about the componenets and functions, which arise my fond to learn programming. I found it so interesting. Now I am confused about the compilar. I am using Turbo C ++ 4.5 compilr for windows environment. But some of the function which tutorial teach me is not recognised by the listed library. For example ( string does'nt work in this compiler). Will anyone suggest me a good compilar which is used for the detailed function. I have good logic and I want to be a programmer in the future.

Any help will really be appreciated, Thanks in advance.

try using GCC. (GNU Compiler Collection). I believe this is the best C/C++ compiler available since the entire open source world uses and develop this compiler. GCC is ANSI/ISO compliant so you are sure that it recognizes standard stuff like string, etc...

When compiling C++ source code from the command line using GCC type:

g++ fileName.cpp -o outputName

Note that you should be in the same directory as the source code when executing this.
If you're compiling C progs, replace 'g++' with 'gcc'

Hope this helps.
