Get prior idioms that made experience on mainframes and research the instruments you want to paintings with this developed and aggressively easy language. it doesn't matter what programming language you now desire, you’ll speedy see that twenty first century C rocks.
* organize a C programming surroundings with shell amenities, makefiles, textual content editors, debuggers, and reminiscence checkers
* Use Autotools, C’s de facto cross-platform package deal manager
* find out about the troublesome C ideas too important to discard
* resolve C’s string-building issues of C-standard functions
* Use glossy syntactic gains for services that take established inputs
* construct high-level, object-based libraries and programs
* practice complex math, check with net servers, and run databases with current C libraries
This variation additionally contains new fabric on concurrent threads, digital tables, C99 numeric kinds, and different good points.

This is going to get byzantine: there is no standard way to find libraries in nonstandard locations, and it rates highly on the list of things that frustrate people about C. On the plus side, your compiler knows how to look in the usual locations, and library distributors tend to put things in the usual locations, so you might never need to specify a path man‐ ually. On another plus side, there are a few tools to help you with specifying paths. And on one last plus side, once you have located the nonstandard locations on your system, you can set them in a shell or makefile variable and never think about them again.
11 But for the other stuff, you have to tell the compiler where to look.

Now you can get to compiling C code. Compiling C with POSIX Microsoft provides a C++ compiler, in the form of Visual Studio, which has a C89 compatibility mode (commonly referred to as ANSI C, even though C11 is the cur‐ rent ANSI standard). This is the only means of compiling C code currently provided by Microsoft. Many representatives from the company have made it clear that any‐ thing beyond support for a few C99 features (let alone C11 support) is not forthcom‐ ing. Visual Studio is the only major compiler that is still stuck on C89, so we’ll have to find alternative offerings elsewhere.
