Hi All,
 The more I work with Perl modules that use a lot of C, the more I find 
the need to learn C.
I've seen the Perl for C programmers book, but I want a C for Perl 
programmers book.

Is there a C programming book equivalent to "Learning Perl" by Randal? 
I've read several Perl books, but when I finally picked up a copy of 
Learning Perl is was obvious to me that I had wasted time on the other 
Perl introductory books.

Also is there a C equivalent to PerlMonks and PerlM[ou]ngers?

Honestly the last C I did was about 10 years ago, I didn't to much more 
than keyboard/mouse input, file opens & saves, and a load of getpixel 
and setpixel routines to make a little game (did also do some crappy 
AI). Can't really remember any of it. Since I started doing Perl I never 
really looked back at C or VB...
