      So I got the Shellcoder’s Handbook as a christmas gift and I just started reading it.

      In your experiences what would be the best compiler to use, to focus on learning the code and following the book?

      Simple GCC? Visual Studio?

      I personally like GCC. Free, comes with or easy to get on most Nix installs. Helps that my home network is all nix boxes. 🙂

      So yes, I’m biased.

      It’s been a while, but if I am not mistaking, the book tells you which compilers to use and when.  If I remember correctly, it mostly focuses on GCC.

      @Lubinski
      Do you mean beginner C or advanced C?
      You can get a beginner level C book in your local library or store. There are a large number of free tutorials available on the net too.

      After you’ve gone through basic loops, if-else, switch, arrays, pointers and structures etc. you can follow it up with “The C programming language” book. Also known as K&R. It’s an advanced level C book by C language developer and is the best source around.

      You can also look at the CS 107 course of Stanford University.

      Jerry Cain is an excellent teacher and I really enjoyed these videos.

      yes thanks, just what I was looking for. I will make myself silly looking through amazon trying to find the right book. But if its suggested by somebody else, means a whole lot more.

      Thanks.
