Kernighan and Ritchi, or "The C Programming Language, Second Edition" is also available here.

But if you are going to learn a very low level language, then I would not advise learning C, because C++ is so much better. There are applications for C, especially when memory is limited significantly, but as C++ creator, Bjarne Stroustrup, said (and I've repeated numerous times on these forums), "C++ is a better C."

Thanks for the help guys, but I read your reply to fun_man about learning C# the same day that I posted my last comment and it sounded like a good place to start. So I went out and bought a book on C# just the other day, hahah.

Good luck and remember that these things take time. Just keep at it, follow the books examples and then start trying to write your own simple programs at first.

That's exactly how I learned a good deal of Javascript. Currently, I started learning C++ from cprogramming.com. They have C and C++ tutorials, and they're making it surprisingly easy to understand. I like it a lot.

First, hello. I'm usually one of those people who will dabble in things, but recently I've actually become pretty focused on hacking, and want to learn programming. sadly, there are a few problems with that.
1. No $ to buy programming books
2. I'm not too quick at picking things up, and like to understand not only what they do, but why they do that
3. I can't seem to find any decent e-books..... mabye it's just me, but....
4. I get grounded pretty often, but I fixed that problem with a flash drive and a computer class at school.

Would anyone be willing to lead me to a couple of good e-books, or be willing to answer the stream of questions that are sure o follow as I get totally lost within the language?

I'm looking for something easy for beginners and with a reasonable (but not too high) of a learning curve......

You weren't specific as to language so here is a possible for c++.

One for c.

Or, you could try looking through this shelf. Enjoy :)
