The link for a free copy should be there
It wants me to subscribe to some sort of newsletter to get the link. I'd rather not, I get enough spam already.
Can't blame as I have that problem as well. I sent you the pdf file to the address you gave me.
A few observations from quickly skimming the whole thing:
* Horribly stilted English. Example: "Learning programming is all about practical. So start doing practical from now."
* In the Introduction says not to use Turbo C because it is horribly outdated, then uses Turbo C in his example of how to compile a program.
* There's some misrendering, though not as egregious as on the web site you were using earlier. Example: Shows double-backquotes at the start of strings in some (but not all...) of the examples.
* Odd, non-standard (at least in the US) terminology. Examples: Calls the part of the file where you put the #includes the "Link Section"; calls statements "instructions". Learning from a text with non-standard terminology could cause confusion later.
* Use of same font for explanatory text and examples (makes it harder to read).
* Improper or no indentation in some of the examples, and difficult to follow even when it is correct due to use of single space (one column) indents and proportional font.
* Coverage of the standard C library is rather light.
Bottom line: It's better than the w3schools mess you got tripped up by earlier, but that's a low bar. It is far inferior to the one the Manjaro people sent you to. IMO its only saving grace is that it appears to be aimed at a more "newbie" audience, if that's what you need; but the stilted English and non-standard terminology are problematic (and quite frankly would drive me nuts and/or confuse me if I was trying to learn the language from it).
