Overview

The authors present the complete guide to ANSI standard C language programming. Written by the developers of C, this new version helps readers keep up with the finalized ANSI standard for C while showing how to take advantage of C's rich set of operators, economy of expression, improved control flow, and data structures. The 2/E has been completely rewritten with additional examples and problem sets to clarify the implementation of difficult language constructs. For years, C programmers have let K&R guide them to building well-structured and efficient programs. Now this same help is available to those working with ANSI compilers. Includes detailed coverage of the C language plus the official C language reference manual for at-a-glance help with syntax notation, declarations, ANSI changes, scope rules, and the list goes on and on.

An excellent book, but definetly _not_ designed for people who have no idea what a compiler is. The book does not teach programming principles; it teaches the syntax. An excellent book if you have some programming background.

After completing reading this book I feel I have a complete 'C' Programming knowledge. I have read lot of other C books, but only after I complete reading this one I'm very confident in C programming. This book will be very good if you have done C programming already but I don't recommend this for beginners.

I'd just like to say that this book was written by the CREATOR of the C programming language, and is essential reference material.

The best way to learn to program in C is to do it from the creators of the language and this book gives you just that. It is not an easy book to read through overnight but can answer almost any question you ever had about C. It is suitable even for absolute beginners who have access to some UNIX environment although it wouldn't teach you in a hand-holding way as some of the other more verbose books on the subject. I recommend it highly both to newcomers and to more experienced people.

C is the language of the gods. This book was written by the gods who created C. This is the C bible. There is no better first language to learn than C and there is no better book on C than this one. Play as you go through this book. You will be glad you did!

This book is classic. I would recommend it to everyone who wants to learn C.

This the first book I ever read about programming next to the book for my TI-82 calculator in Junior High. This book contains everything a beginning programmer needs to learn and understand the concepts involved in entry level programming and gives them a needed introduction to Unix. It is an awesome reference for even the most knowledgable programmers and comes in handy during late night programming when you can't seem to remember anything. I recommend this book to anyone who wants to even consider programming.

the dude who wrote the review above is a senile person, obviously. this is a 5 star book PERIOD. so so so many people recommend this book. it is a little hard to follow at times, but just read it slow and try different things and you will come out a better programmer. if you struggle with some of the exercies then it also might be a good idea to buy "The C Answer Book".

There is a solid reason why people recommend and hold on to this book for ages. It is the classic. Not only does it capture the spirit of the working practical aspects, but it tries to also suggest the complexity and power that C was envisioned with. Try it. It can make everything so simple.

BS'D This book is incredible in that it fits so much in so little; because of this, however, it tends to be very concise and might be less helpful to someone with absolutely no experience with programming computers. I'd still use it but in conjunction with a class on the subject. I took my first course on the subject by someone who also had a book (which will go unnamed as I wasn't thrilled with it) and this beat it hands down, but it was good having the class to go to as well.

This book has more info than books with 10 times the pages! Simply the best reference on the C Language!

This may the best book on C you'll ever read because of it's clear, concise explanations.

This book is definately worthy of it's title 'The Bible Of C'. I would recommend this book to anyone who is really serious about becomming a good c programmer. It's a hard read, but not too hard and contains great examples.

This is basicly not for beginner... However it is very useful for people who have some programming background and want to clarify some of the unclear points. Lots of things, such as structure, pointers, function calls, are clearly described in this book. Also, many good examples.... I learned a lot myself from this book and now feel very confident about C.
