Since I started useing OpenWatcom 1.9 a year or so ago, I'm starting to learn C programming. (It's about time!  :-[ )   Occassionally, I'd go to their discussion board for assistance.  Now, I find the board is archived. (no more posting!)

Does anyone know of another place where one can get answers on C Programming?

My current issue deals with some warnings emited by the linker (I believe):
Code: [Select]
C:\C_Prog\TplTst>WCL386 TplUser2 tpl mmap       -6r -bc -bt=nt -d2 -en -fo=.obj
-mf -od -w4 -zq -zev
Warning! W1171: locally defined symbol tpl_map_ imported
Warning! W1171: locally defined symbol tpl_load_ imported
Warning! W1171: locally defined symbol tpl_unpack_ imported
Warning! W1171: locally defined symbol tpl_free_ imported
I'm learning to implement Tpl, a library for serializing C data. I had allready suppressed compile time warnings.  The program does work correctly but I dislike these warnings cluttering things up!  If I understood what they were telling me, I could try to correct them.  It sounds like it is getting something from a shared library (DLL) but I'm not useing any thing like that that I know of.  In this program, I'm not even useing my own static libraries.  

I'm using cmd.exe to compile a cli application.

Hi StrayBit,

What about http://stackoverflow.com/tags/c/info ?

Wow!  That is a very active site.  I've spent all morning looking at questions dealing with C and i did'nt make it past those asked yesterday!  In the process, I've run across items that I had wondered about and others that I had spent days (if not weeks) solving.

Thank you profusely, Rbistolfi

Glad you like it!

By the way, programming topics are welcome here, so keep us informed ;)

I wasn't sure where else to put it.  But I put a comment about that site - and an ebook I'm reading - in this section.  If it should have some where esle, please move it.
