Introductory C : Pointers, Functions and Files
Aimed at professionals studying C, programmers, and programming students learning C, this book focuses on what a programmer needs to know in order to get a program running in C. It emphasizes how each new programming feature in C relates to the use of pointers to provide a thorough understanding of the numerous applications throughout C. The book presents a procedural style in its approach to the functions in C, emphasizes the C file functions and explains the logical implementation of files - text, formatted, and record, and uses many short, clear, and simple programs to highlight each new feature of C. It includes a chapter on C++ with practical examples emphasizing data protection and file management.
