I thought about starting some programming as i am a physics student and i will need some experience somewhen. I only know some turbopascal and have a basic understanding about functions etc. I am just considering c or c++, as anything other than that would be too slow. But then i saw some vala benchmarks on mandelbrot and similar simulations and it's very close to c in speed. The only problem is, to learn c, I got some free ebook, thats pretty good. But i couldn't find any ebook for vala(anything other than an ebook is useless imho, as there is no red line through the text). So if anyone knows a source, please tell me(doesn't have to be too long, some 50 or 100 pages are enough usually).
