Does anybody have online tutorials, books or any helpful source on learning SDL with C (not C++). Thanks.

This unfortunately only deals with 5 or 6 trivial topics; I'm looking for a start to finish SDL tutorial or guide with C.

This uses C++.

I am getting so frustrated of not being able to find a decent learning resource for SDL with C that I'm considering just learning C++.

Not a bad idea, but I would personally recommend C#. You can learn a lot of the higher level details of game programming with XNA and not have to deal with the many little details that C/C++ will force you to. Although SDL and C++ is not a terrible way to start.

I think it's better to learn C++ because think of C++ as a better C and you could easily go back to C if you begin with C++ and learn it well.(if you ever go back by then)
