I can write C, but I'm not confident I'm doing it the right way. There are now decades of forums and blogs I can search through, but I'd love to have a single, clean, clear source of truth for recommendations on how to write C code.
I've started reading "Modern C" by Jens Gustedt. I'm not sure if this is the closest to a modern source of truth.
Note, I'd like my C code to work on Windows, which possibly restricts the "right way" to features provided by C89. But again, I'm not sure, the internet is super clear on this.
Thanks for the tips!
