I think most of what I have came from the bookstores.  I've got 
probably 500+ dollars in so-called C textbooks on the shelf right 

Start with the one from Herbert Schildt, then fill in the gaps with 
whatever pulls your trigger standing in front of the rack at Barnes & 
Noble etc.  The first purchase should also include a copy of K&R #2.  
It should be used as the argument settler in case of confusion.  
Everything else is just so much, often way more verbose, frosting on 
the cake.

I looked at some VB code the other night that a friend was working on.  
Quite a lot being done in 100 lines of code, but I've never seen such 
a batch of spagetti in my life.  Crap used but not pre-defined all 
over the place.  Half an hour of talking about it to Jim and I had a 
headache.  That stuff could convert a well trained programmer into a 
blithering idiot.  Scarey.

Cheers, Gene
