Heh.  Not really learning to write in C then are you.  If you don't take
courses, where you can learn to solve certain problems, and find new ways
to get through common ones, your code is going to be long, garbled and
idiotic.  Unless your a prodigy, yer not going to be programming at any
saleable level.

I agree.
