Chasing the whale


At Coffee House Coders I've
joked that JavaScript is my white-whale language (aka the language that
I've tried to learn for many years and haven't yet achieved). That's not
entirely true though. While JavaScript is definitely A white whale
language it's not the only white whale language for me. No, there are
several, but the one I want to focus on is C.

C is one of my oldest white whale languages. I've written some simple
projects in it, but it always feels like I've never really learned C.
I've taken a look at the source code of several different projects like
Firefox or Blender and found myself totally lost in there. I've made
several attempts over the years to really learn it, and while each time
I get closer to understanding it I start to feel uncertain about the
outcome and eventually stop learning it.

I realized this while I was learning Rust. Rust really smooths away a
lot of the rougher edges of languages like C and C++, but each time I
started to learn Rust I started thinking about how I never properly
learned C. While I can appreciate what Rust is doing I felt I needed to
give C another try, especially with more modern C and C compilers.

I've decided to run through the book "Modern
C
" by Jens Gustedt. Part of this is
because the text of the book is online, but also because the book takes
a more layered approach, starting from the basics and then adding
additional layers of complexity. I thought about trying with the classic
Kernighan and Ritchie C book, but a) it covers ANSI C, not more recent
versions of C, and b) it assumes you're coming from a more
hardware-level programming background that I don't have. That's not to
say I won't give it a peek (or really any of the other C books that I've
accumulated over the years) but I'm going to use this as my guide for
now and see where this leads.

I'm planning on reporting my progress, but I can say that I've already
felt some of the frustration while doing some simple casting in C. But
frustration is part of the learning process. Before I would want to run
away from the frustration, or think that I was somehow defective because
I didn't get this stuff straightaway. Now I'm noticing the frustration
and leaning into it a bit more. The only thing you get while running
away is tired.

We'll see where this leads, but I'm hopeful that this experience will be
helpful in many ways. I'll report on my progress as the week wears on.
