C, this is probally the most used programming language with Home PC's. There
are a few things that make C programming so popular. First off, it is portable,
meaning you can take the code from one OS to another(to a point). Another is
that C code can be pretty fast. Also it is fairly easy to use(at least compared
to assembly). So you can make fast complex routines with a good deal of speed.|
Check out the different things I have programmed and other links that might
aid you with your C programs.
All of my C programs are done in Borland Turbo C++ 3.0. Yes it is for DOS and
yes it is a 16-bit compiler, but it gets the job done(for now at least). A
good book I have found is PC Game Programming Explorer. It is an older book
but has a lot of good information.
This is an action adventure game similar to Zelda, check it out!!
Run around and kill escaped convicts, fun for all!!
