I know very little C, and I am trying to find a high quality interactive C tutorial (all the ones I have found are either learn c in one day ripoffs, websites jammed with adds, or really slow moving courses). Does anybody know of a good, beginner to high level free c tutorial, sort of like Khan Academy's complete JS course?
I don't know If I could recommend a basics/syntax of C course. But for me, just reading documentation helps. The CE Toolchain has an excellent documentation, and you might pick up some C from reading it.

Otherwise, I'd just look up a basic C tutorial on youtube. There are tons to fit many different learning styles. Find one you like and stick with it. Happy programming! Very Happy
Go read a book: https://www.amazon.com/Programming-Language-2nd-Brian-Kernighan/dp/0131103628

This is the only book that you people should ever need.
Mateo, you know how you told me how to make an alias which automatically makes and compiles a .8xp C program for my calculator? Would it be possible to add something to the alias which would send the binary immediately to CEMU?
Wow, I looked at the link above from amazon.com and was surprised at the prices listed for the book. Iím glad I kept my version with a Copyright 1978. It isnít in mint condition because I used it a great deal when I was still programming in C. I never took any classes in C and probably used the book to learn it.
I also recommend the book Mateo said. I borrowed my dad's copy to help me learn CE C and it was super useful.
if you already know how to program in a different language don't waste money on buying books. there are many videos on YouTube and etc. showing the basics of "C".

For example I started with ICE "Which is basically C on the calculator". The slowly moved to C with the Help of YouTube Videos.

This is how you end up programming horribly. Buy the book, or loan it out from a library.
It also helps if you know other programmming languages, but that's not required.

I learned from the excellent book Head First C. You can probably find a PDF of it somewhere.

There are other free C books online, like this list. Other people have said that libraries have hard copies, so definitely go check them out. I find that a hard copy is very helpful, especially if you don't have a dual monitor setup. Even if you just type the code in, you'll learn something!

Also, if you're learning C, I recommend not using the CE toolchain, but rather on the computer. The toolchain is much easier to pick up once you're comfortable with C.
