Book Description

Just about every C programmer I respect learned C from this book. Unlike many of the 1,000 page doorstops stuffed with CD-ROMs that have become popular, this volume is concise and powerful (if somewhat dangerous) - like C itself. And it was written by Kernighan himself. Need we say more?

This book presents a complete guide to ANSI standard C language programming. Written by the developers of C, this new version helps readers keep up with the finalized ANSI standard for C while showing how to take advantage of C's rich set of operators, economy of expression, improved control flow, and data structures.

This 2nd edition has been completely rewritten with additional examples and problem sets to clarify the implementation of difficult language constructs.
