	Speaking of books, I had (and lost , unfortunately, will be 
picking up another copy shortly :) one EXCELLENT book on C, called (if I 
remember correctly) the Waite Group's Programming C with Turbo C++ , by 
Robert Lafore.  There are two versions, one thicker than the other (the 
thicker one comes with a disk, too).  Of course, while it is in 
particular useful for Borland's Turbo C++, it is a great C reference in 
general if you're still learning C.  This isn't a particularly advanced 
book; if you're looking for something advanced, I've had one recommended 
to me called Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment, by W. Richard 
Stevens, although I can't say anything about it personally.
	The latter book I got for about $70 canadian, the former I got 
for $30 second hand.. I expect it would be $45-60 new (canadian).

	Heehee, now if someone could explain these to me, I'd be set.. :)

	(btw, PLEASE snip out any non-relevant quoted text.. a lot of 
that had NOTHING to do with your message. :)
