Overview

Beginning Programming with C For Dummies covers the fundamentals required as readers begin writing applications using C. The book assumes the reader knows nothing of programming and it takes them through some of the most advanced topics in C: Pointers, Linked lists, File I/O, debugging, and building large programs or applications. All of that is done with a handholding approach, no assumptions, and plenty of humor. The key to this book, and what’s been missing from other C titles, is the inclusion of an IDE, Integrated Development Environment. Specifically, this book concentrates on using the popular CODE::BLOCKS environment. It is available for Windows, Mac, and Linux OSes. The book concentrates on the more common aspects of C, with less of the esoteric and no-longer-relevant portions. The book is current by covering the new C11 standard. The book takes the reader through the appropriate steps to teach smaller example programs, while at the same time moving the reader forward in their knowledge of C programming. After working through this book, the reader will have a solid understanding of computer programming. Because they will know how C works, they will be ready to take on programming projects, learn new popular programming languages based and built on C, and approach new topics without the fear and hesitation most readers have who are frustrated or overwhelmbed by learning programming.
