Hello all, I don''t currently have any Reference books for C that describe syntax. I would LOVE to have a good webpage where I could just put in the function I needed help on and it pops right up. I know that MSDN is going to be the obvious answer, but it takes me FOREVER to find ANY information there =) Can someone give me a link or two to some good (complete) C Syntax reference Webpages? Alternatively, Can someone try to explain how best to find info on MSDN =) Thanks all! ~~~~~~~~~~~ Chris Vogel ~~~~~~~~~~~

In my experience, google works as a better search engine for the MSDN stuff than MSDN does itself. Type the name of the function you're interested in and then site:msdn.microsoft.com or what have you to limit the search to a specific site.

By Syntax do you mean like lexx/yac grammars and the like? That can be found with a little bit of elbow grease. Also check the C faq @ eskimo.com and don't forget to poke around a lysator too.

// edit:
Here are a couple of urls that might help too

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/vccore98/HTML/crthm.asp
or this
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/library/en-us/vclib/html/vcrefRunTimeLibraryReference.asp

not sure what lexx/yac grammers or lysator are, but Thanks for the google suggestion.

By syntax I basically meant how to use the function, and what parameters to pass it. I would prefer a small program or snippit showing the function in action as well.

Ok. Well, if you don''t know what lex/yac grammars are, you probably don''t need to know yet. Between google and those two MSDN links you should be good to go.
