C and C based languages module C221
Secure C Programming
Exercises, examples and other material relating to training module C221. This topic is presented on public courses Learning to Program in C, Learning to program in C and C++, Programming in C, C and C++ Programming, Learning to program in C and C++, C and C++ Programming

Background
As a low level language, there are a number of things that C does NOT do for you that other languages do. For example, if you use the contents of an uninitialised variable you'll get unpredicatble results, and if you reference off the end of an array you'll use or corrupt other variables or your code. Such issues, together with bad programming and a lack of thorough testing, have caused some of the major internet security holes we've seen over recent years. In this module, we study the issues that you need to guard against and teach you how to write robust and reliable code in C.
Examples from our training material
oob.c   A poor program - using un initialised variables and an out of bounds array

Well House Consultants specialise in training courses in Python, Perl, PHP, and MySQL. We run Private Courses throughout the UK (and beyond for longer courses), and Public Courses at our training centre in Melksham, Wiltshire, England. It's surprisingly cost effective to come on our public courses - even if you live in a different country or continent to us.

We have a technical library of over 700 books on the subjects on which we teach. These books are available for reference at our training centre. Also available is the Opentalk Forum for discussion of technical questions.
