[tpm] Perl to C learnings

Hi all,

  This may seem like an odd post, but I have a potential job lined up. I
told them that my C experience is weak, to be polite, and that the bulk
of my experience is in Perl. They want to give me a chance though, so
I've been given some time to write a relatively simple C program.

  So my question is; Can anyone recommend a C tutorial, guide or similar
aimed at Perl programmers? Most of the guides I've found assume little
to no programming experience, so I've spent a lot of time reading things
I know. Normally I wouldn't mind, but I've got a fairly limited amount
of time to submit this program and prove my ability to learn.

  I'm specifically not talking about the program, as I want to see for
myself how quickly I can adapt. The main things I need to know are file
reads and string manipulation, if that helps with recommending resources.

  Thanks in advance all! If this wasn't such a potential awesome job on
the line, I'd not bother the list with non-perl stuff. :)
