 Where Do I Go From Here?

I have been learning C from the first part of the book (before you get
to the obsolete Windows stuff) that used to come with Microsoft Quick C
and compiling the sample programs using GCC. I also found a copy of
Teach Yourself C by Herbert Schildt in my local library, which seems to
cover the same material in more detail. At this point, based on either
what I have learned or what I can
look up, it seems that I can use all the basics to write programs that
receive input from the command line and print output to the screen.  I
haven't mastered the material I have already covered, of course, but as
long as I can actually use what I have already covered, I would like to
investigate programs that go beyond the command line. One thing I liked
about learning some Java a year or so ago was that one can start using
the windowing toolkit early on. So what would be a good next thing to
start working on (while still getting better at the basics)? It seems
that ncurses would allow me to go beyond the command line in Linux, GTK+
would enable me to do it for X Windows, and then there is Win32 API, the
current version, I guess, of  the Microsoft stuff in the Quick C book.
Which of these or any other possibilities would be good for some modest
ventures beyond the command line? I am stressing the "modest" part here.

Thanks in advance,

Thank you for the reply. Supposing I only want to use the display
as much as  vi does? What would be a good way to learn how to
do it?
