Expand the C language's capabilities. Discover how to tap into the power of external libraries to access complex data, interact with the web, play with graphics, and more.
- [Instructor] The C programming language isn't limited to primitive text mode input and output, when you know the secret, you can expand on what C can do, accessing complex data, interacting with the web, playing with graphics and more. The secret is to understand and use C libraries. Now a library expands the C languages capabilities. Plenty of these libraries are available each of which boosts your C program's potential. These are found free on the internet, downloaded, installed and ready to use. I'm Dan Gookin, author of several programming books and courses including C Essential Training. In this course I introduce you to a variety of C libraries. The process of finding, installing, and testing the libraries is covered along with plenty of sample code and demonstrations. The material here provides a solid foundation upon which you can build your own programs and perform amazing feats you are probably unaware of. All this potential is possible thanks to the power of C libraries.
