Welcome to the Ranch againm Mr.Herbert. Last time, I was not good enough in luck, not winning the Java:The Complete Reference. This time I hope I might win one.

Here's a good "geek" story... Years ago, I had a roommate that had just dropped an intro to programming class at Boston University. I bought his textbook off of him, had him give me his username and password for his mainframe--yes, mainframe--account, and would sneak into the BU library to get on a terminal (I wasn't a student there). That's how I started to teach myself C.
The textbook was the original, 1987 edition of "C: The Complete Reference". It's still one of my first resources I'll grab when I have to freshen up on linked lists, expression parsing, etc. In fact, it's sitting on my office bookshelf as I type this.
As for me, the first programming I learnt was C and the textbook that I used was Teach Yourself C of Mr.Herbert. It's a long long time ago, when I don't know how to spell J.A.V.A., I read Teach Yourself C and came into the world of programming.
I hope we will have a nice week here in this forum with Mr.Herbert. Thanks.
