If you are already C literate and just want to apply it to IBM i then the only source would be the manuals. The ILE C/C++ Programmer’s Guide describes record and device I/O and gives examples.

You'll find all the related manuals here: https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_73/pdftable/pdftable.htm <https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/ssw_ibm_i_73/pdftable/pdftable.htm>

Apart from the programmers guide and reference manual the ILE C/C++ Runtime Library Functions manual contains all the information on record level I/O.

If you are not C literate then the only thing I know of is this book https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?index=books&linkCode=qs&keywords=9780962874369 <https://www.amazon.com/gp/search?index=books&linkCode=qs&keywords=9780962874369> which is very out-of-date but covers the basics. If you'd needed this two weeks ago I had a spare copy I just threw out!

All other materials that were published in the past seem to have disappeared wth the demise of the iProDeveloper web site since Penton published more of that stuff than the other mags.

Anybody know a good central pace to ease into C-language programming in IBM i? I mean also including the use of MAKE.

Especially for using the DB2 for i database?
