C and C++ manual (free in txt/html easy download)

I am at this moment a delphi amateur programmer..
and I wan't to start with C++ (so also C). I already have some documentation but not enough to start actually learning C. Since delphi is pascal I already know pascal (en basic and stuff) so a manual that's based on going from pascal to C would be more then perfect =)

I recommend Stanly Lippman's "C++ Primer". For an online book, see Bruce Eckel's 2nd edition of "Thinking in C++" available at http://www.eckelobjects.com/ThinkingInCPP2e.html

But I will leave this question open for other experts ..
nex week I will decide who gave the best manual =) and remember
that I need a manual to learn from pascal to C/C++  ...
(I used pascal/delphi for 3.5 years now.. so I don't need a manual explaining what programming is and .. oh well, you know what..)  If a manual is very good and easy to download  I will increase the points so that it's worth answering :-)

Go to www.macmillan.com  there are a multitude of online books there.  You can view them online, or print them out and burn them when you are finish learning as i have.

The book that I used was, C++ in 12 easy lessons, (around that name)  Look at it.  I also did pascal (self taught) so self teaching C++ from a book was easy, it is an extremely good book to learn from. :)  I am now doing serious windows and database programming at work.  Still working with it now.

Well.. I am nly using delphi for about.. 3 years now, I don't think I CaN already write a whole delphi
manual the way real delphi-programmers would like it. But if you will write a C/C++ manual in html/txt,
gimme the url =) .  
However.. the idea of trying to get some professionals togetter to write such a 'document pool' is good !

Well even I cant write a book on c/c++ but at least give you a good introduction to language and a few topics I have mastered in c/c++. Different people can contribute to different aspects of it.

I dont have a URL to give u as yet but I am working on it:-)
for the time being use my e-mail kr_sushil@usa.net
Everybody is welcome to contribute.

By the way, I'd suggest going directly to C++.  Learn Object Oriented Programming from the start ... you'll pick up enough C while you are in the process, but pay particular attention to the standard library, math library, etc.   Good luck!

C++ are not that different from Delphi/Pascal.
So I think you should do one of the following:

1. By "C++ Programming Language" by Bjarne Stroustrup. It is very extensive and complete (he made the language and is now head of the C++ ISO commitee). It should contain what you need.

2. The C & C++ specifications are also available online, but that is a bit harder. It can be found on the Microsoft Developers network library. (Also on CD). Can be reached from http://msdn.microsoft.com
