Description

It's no secret: When it comes to learning a programming language, Larry Ullman is the man you want at your side! As the best-selling author of guides to PHP, MySQL, and more, he's proved that programming doesn't have to be painful, especially when it comes to a language that is at its core both simple and small. We're talking, of course, about C, and if you want to learn it fast (not to mention well), this book provides the key. Joined by co-author and fellow programmer Marc Liyanage, this author team tackles both programming fundamentals and the ABCs of C itself through a series of task-based lessons that use step-by-step instructions and a plethora of visual aids to make C if not instantly accessible, then almost. This book uses friendly, straightforward language to explain every aspect of this fundamental technology: from basic syntax and data types to working with numbers, characters, loops, and arrays; creating functions; using the C preprocessor; file input and output; and more.
