Using C. in Software Design
This guide aims to provide a creative approach to learning C by emphasizing software engineering. It is designed for those learning C as a second language and ANSI C users. Numerous problems are included at the end of each chapter. The book is divided into two sections: the first part emphasizes the simpler software engineering aspects of C, allowing the reader to begin writing interesting programs quickly; the second part discusses advanced C topics, such as pointers, structures and the design of larger C programs which extend over several source code files. All the material has been class-tested to ensure accuracy and usability. A software project is introduced early in the book and appears throughout as new features of C are covered. Separate chapters on the "make" utility and "Toward C++" are included. Programs with bugs or errors are used to illustrate potential errors and how they can be fixed to create working programs. Special emphasis is placed on the design and implementation of user-defined libraries. A 3.5" MAC disk is supplied with this paperback.
