Debian-mentors isn't the right list for this either.
Are you *sure* you want to learn C? Why not take Eric Raymond's
advice at <URL:http://www.tuxedo.org/~esr/faqs/hacker-howto.html> and
learn Python? It's an easier language, the newsgroup
"comp.lang.python" isn't very busy, and it's useful on Mac on Win32
To get started, install all of the packages starting with "python-" in
Debian, and Emacs or XEmacs with the Python mode.
