learning C language

Hi,
I have 0 skill in C but I'm very interested in learning C language.

I have skills in SuperNova, VB, Informix and UNIX, so, anybody can recommend me the book should I use?

I would like to learn C for Windows and UNIX...


Thanks

Well I learnt to program using the following books and although Im still really learning I have found them to be of great help along the way.

They include practical exercises as well as theory and self examinations.

Since you claim you have no skills in C Language and would like to learn it for Unix and Windows, I recommend a book to you which I am using now for my study in C. My institution is using this textbook for lecturing beginners in C Language programming in Unix as well as Windows platform. I find this book useful for both beginners and intermediate programmers.

Recommended textbook for C:
Applications Programming in ANSI Third Edition.

Author:
Richard Johnsonbaugh & Martin Kalin.

Publisher:
Prentice Hall

Hope it would be helpful to you.
