I bought a book, Absolute Beginner's Guide to C, and got Eclipse up and running. But some of the code between that book and the Juno release of Eclipse seems a little off. My book is copyright 1994, so I was wondering if C has changed since then?

I'm just learning how to program, and tell me if I'm off, but it seems like there may be a few variations between IDEs or C?

For example, the help file, "Creating your C++ file" from "C/C++ Development User Guide > Getting Started" gives the code:

#include <iostream>
using namespace std;

int main () {
    // Say Hello five times
    for (int index = 0; index < 5; ++index)
      cout << "HelloWorld!" << endl;
    char input = 'i';
    cout << "To exit, press 'm'" << endl;
    while(input != 'm') {
        cin  >> input;
        cout << "You just entered " << input
             << " you need to enter m to exit." << endl;
    }
    exit(0);
}



And it took me a few weeks to figure out that "exit" was wrong. It only worked when I changed it to "return".

Is there a C primer/guide I can start with because some of the code from my book works and some do not.

You should know, that C and C++ are different languages:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C_%28programming_language%29

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C%2B%2B

You created an C++ example and therefore the "Hello World" code is different to the examples in your C book. Create a C project in Eclipse/CDT.

If you have problem starting with CDT, read:

http://help.eclipse.org/indigo/index.jsp?topic=%2Forg.eclipse.cdt.doc.user%2Fconcepts%2Fcdt_o_home.htm

regards,
Klaus
