In that directory is the MathLink Tutorial, written by Todd Gayley, which is an excellent primer for MathLink. It comes in both notebook and PostScript format, so you can obtain whichever is more convenient for you. Sorry...I don't really know a good C book (I hated all of the ones I learned C from). Hopefully, someone else has some suggestions. However, just so you know, almost any bookstore will be packed with books on C; there is plenty of variety out there. John Fultz Wolfram Research, Inc.
