    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.
