I also had problems finding source code. wrox.com doesn't even acknowledge this book!

according to the book, the source code is available via www.wrox.com or ftp.wrox.com or you can pay for a disk. nothing can be found on their website or via the ftp site. there is no link to the isbn number or the book title for the source whatsoever!!! good way to get people to pay for the disk!! and to believe i've been a programmer for 15 years.

This book is a really great introducion to the C language. It covers all the material very clearly. I have read other books by the author and have fond them all to be excellent.

As a new C programmer, this book was the first reference that made difficult subjects like strings, arrays, pointers etc. understandable. If you're struggling, this is the book you need.

I've bought this book from b&n while ago. after looking thru several chapters, I've realized that something is wrong. I've asked gurus at comp.lang.c newsgrounds, and _all_ of them agreed that this is bad book. No surprise. Authour don't even know how to define main() function correctly! He uses void main() { } while C programs _must_ return 0 in main. Like int main() { /* ... */ return 0; } This is terrible book. I've returned it to the store after 2nd day. The author didn't stoped here. He wrote other terrible book on Java. (Programming in JAVA) by WROX press... well, it's another story. I'll never-ever going to buy any book by Ivor Horton & Co.. Ask for advice at newsgrounds... - John
