No matter what programming language you currently favor, you'll quickly see that 21st century C rocks .

Set up a C programming environment with shell facilities, makefiles, text editors, debuggers, and memory checkers Use Autotools, C's de facto cross-platform package manager Learn about the problematic C concepts too useful to discard Solve C's string-building problems with C-standard functions Use modern syntactic features for functions that take structured inputs Build high-level, object-based libraries and programs Perform advanced math, talk to internet servers, and run databases with existing C libraries

The C language has improved over the years. If you have some knowledge of programming, and you want to make best use of this fast language, then read this excellent ebook. Yes, the info is all on the web somewhere. But I challenge you to find it in a readable form. This book has the legendary O’Reilly quality.
