From C. to C. : Introduction to ANSI C.
This text is appropriate for any C programming language course. Part I comprises a complete tutorial for learning C language, plus programming strategies on correct programming style and hints on maximizing portability. Part II is a complete and in-depth reference manual of the language, which the student will need as a serious programmer and later as a professional. An appendix compares ANSI C with older versions of C. Twelve chapter summaries provide quick review of material, and ten tables summarize the most significant features of the language. Functions are introduced in the very first chapter.
