Is it pretty easy to convert basic programs to C???

When i looked at hal chamberlins basic examples, 2 things popped out....lots of goto's and weird arrow symbols in the code. Not sure what the arrows are for



Thanks for the book ideas too!!!

Don't ask me why, but I suppose us types have an intuitive, yet limited understand of numbers.  The same seems true of me and analog electronics.  anyway, that reminds me of a 2nd book I like.  It's free online:  http://www.dspguide.com/pdfbook.htm
