As I read about advanced Perl techniques, I'm becoming more and more curious about the C programming language. Stuck in my mind is some advice a while back from a fellow Monk who, to paraphrase, said that learning C along with Perl would be very beneficial to understanding programming in general.
As I consider taking the plunge and pick up a beginner's C book (any recommendations?), I'd like to hear thoughts on this. In what specific ways would you say C can expands programming horizons?
