Welcome to the Wikiversity content-development project for the C computer language, part of the Division of Computer Programming.
C is one of the most widely used programming languages in the world. Therefore, C is a common choice for people wanting to learn how to program. This course assumes no previous programming experience and will guide you through all of the aspects of programming in C.
The course will roughly follow the C Programming book at Wikibooks as well as provide supplementary reading material for each lesson primarily through Wikipedia. Exercises will be given at the end of each course along with possible solutions. It is highly recommended that all of the exercises be worked because programming is learned by doing not just reading.
Note to Students and Prospective Contributors
It has been some time since this course has been updated and expanded on, and for some unknown reason I have a desire to start to work on it. The original author assumed the student would be using Turbo C. Since the online community is much more diverse on the types of operating systems in use, I feel it is more relevant to show examples and exercises using a number of different compilers and OSs (Clang for FreeBSD, GCC for Linux, Dev-C++ with MinGW for Windows, GCC and XCode for the Mac OS, and Ideone are my choices). Another alternative is Visual Studio Community 2017 which can be found here - https://www.visualstudio.com/en-us/products/visual-studio-community-vs.aspx
