Fancy you mention C for RPG programmers.  There is exactly a book called by
this name written by Jennifer Hamilton.  It is only RPG/400 specific not ILE
RPG and uses the previous C/400 compiler for C.  But it is very good
perspective of C for an RPG programmer.  It is available from Duke press.

                       "This book is written in a style that makes you think
the author is speaking directly to you an ideal complement to the manuals

                       Expand your RPG knowledge to include the currently
demanded C programming skills. Because this book is written from the
perspective of an RPG
                       programmer, you can easily adapt to C without returning
to the basics. C for RPG Programmers includes side-by-side coding examples
written in both C
                       and RPG to aid comprehension and understanding, clear
identification of unique C constructs, and a comparison of RPG opcodes to
equivalent C
                       concepts. Also, both the novice and experienced C
programmer will benefit from the many tips and examples covering the use of
                       Overview  Data Types  Expressions  Statements 
Arrays  Structures and Unions  Functions, Scope, and Storage Class 
Separate Compilation and
                       Linkage  Parameter Passing  Pointers  Pointer
Arithmetic  Using Pointers  The Preprocessor Type  Conversions and
Definitions  Stream I/O  Error
