Alright, for C there are a few books out there, my favorite:
The C Programming Language
Though this book is ment for the Unix Operating System, and judging by your post, you don't run Unix; I think you run Windows, so look on http://www.amazon.com for programming books on C.

You shouldn't say Script Languages, but Programming Languages. When you say Script Language, people would usually think you mean Scripting Language.

I doubt you will be able to master a Programming Language if you can't even write English correctly; maybe consider learning English before C?

Octal: He said C and Python. Python is a scripting language, cause it doesn't compile.

And as for Python:

http://www.programmi...com/python.aspx
http://www.python.org/doc/
http://www.techiware...n_Tutorial.html
http://www.freeprogr...com/python.html

That should tide you over for a while.

Dude, python compiles into bytecode, just like perl, ruby, lisp, java etc.. The difference is that unlike C, python has an interactive shell. Personally, i think a scripting language is a language used for small one-time-use, aka throw-away programs. C can be a scripting language, if that works for you :)

That's not a very good description, as any language can be compiled into bytecode or native code, or interpreted, it's just up to how you implement it (There is actually a C REPL (Read-eval-print-loop) which does "on-the-fly" interpreting of C code, but it's not very practical)

C = programming language
Python = scripting language

Programming does not depend on knowing the English language as you can program in any language.

true, but trying to understand legacy code written in Navajo is really difficult. :P

I listened to Binrev Radio episode 94 today which was on languages. Gave me a good insight into some of the different ones. The show mainly focused on BASIC, C and C++, Java and COBOL, the 'visual's' and of course Perl.

It was an interesting show, worth a listen thread starter.
