in thread C tutorial for Perl programmers?

Dont leave pointer arithmetic for later. Teach it early. It was the hardest thing for me to understand when going from Perl to C, if a pointer is just a number, why is +2 way to far off to the right in memory? Do I have to do +0.5 to get to the first slice? (no, go learn pointer arthmitic)
