Description

C is one of the most popular programming languages today. It is flexible, efficient and highly portable, and is used for writing many different kinds of programs, from compilers and assemblers to spreadsheets and games. This book is based on ANSI C - the recently adopted standard for the C language. It assumes familiarity with basic programming concepts such as variables, constants, iteration and looping, but covers all aspects of C. In general it is as much about learning programming skills as it is about mastering the art of coding programs in C. To this end the text contains a wealth of examples and exercises that foster and test the understanding of the concepts developed in each chapter. An outstanding feature of this book is a treatment of 'pointers'. The topic is presented in a clear, logical and reasoned manner that is easy to follow. Binary files and random access files are also treated in such a manner that the reader can easily become adept at using them. Anybody who wishes to get to grips with the art of programming in C will find this a most valuable book.show more
