I have the original and the new one. This is not the right level for a beginner. This is great stuff when we talk about complex client-server and multi-process applications.

You cannot go from "I want to ride bicycles" to "drive motorcycles in motocross competitive races" in a single step!

I recommend again K&R for a study of how loops work. It is short, but the information content is dense. A lot is said in few words.

    The OP is considering books like "Art of UNIX Programming", "Pragmatic Programmer" and "Programming Pearls". He also declared he knows about the syntax and such - he can actually code. I think he's already way past the learning how to ride a bicycle. He seems to be more "great, I know how to ride a bicycle - now, how can I scale a mountain on one?".

    I certainly assume the OP knows how to write a loop.
