Join Dan Gookin for an in-depth discussion in this video Next steps, part of C: Data Structures, Pointers, and File Systems.
- [Dan] Thank you for watching this course which explores data structures and pointers and other C language concepts. This course is an extension of the C Essential Training course. So if you find yourself puzzled by a few of the concepts mentioned here, I encourage you to review that course. To continue your exploration of the C programming language I have many suggestions. First, ensure that you have proper documentation of the C library. The man pages are handy on any Unix system, which includes Linux, Mac OS 10 and the Ubuntu shell which is offered in Windows 10. Type the word man followed by a space and then the name of the function, such as printf. You can also search the internet for C library documentation, most of which is a repetition of the man pages, but hopefully you'll find some documentation with code examples as well. A page I recommend is found on the Fortran 2000 site. Be aware that this site may change in the future. If you prefer a written tutorial to supplement your online learning, I recommend my book Beginning Programming with C for Dummies. I've also written a book on Ncurses programming. Ncurses is a C library that let's you manipulate the terminal screen and text input. My website, c-for-dummies.com, offers C language programming lessons updated weekly along with monthly challenges and exercises. You can also check out my profile on LinkedIn, Dan Gookin, Mad Genius. Many other courses are available on this site to continue your programming education. To find a specific course, consider your area of interest. Graphics programming, network programming, operating systems, microcontrollers, and a host of other specialties all available with more courses coming online all the time. I'm Dan Gookin, thanks for watching.
