Book: Advanced C / Book and Disk
Publisher: Sams Publishing
C has become one of the most frequently used computer languages. The first C language was developed by Dennis Ritchie at Bell Laboratories in 1972 and ran on a DEC PDP-11. The ANSI standard for C, which replaced the standard written by Kernighan and Ritchie in 1978, is only a few years old.C’s structure is similar to PL/I (a popular language used on IBM’s mainframe computers), FORTRAN, Pascal, and BASIC. C is a simple language. It has only a small group of keywords and no support for I/O or advanced math. The power of C comes from its simplicity and its use of a standard library of functions.Advanced C is for the programmer who has some experience writing applications in C or a similar language, such as PL/I or Pascal. Regardless of whether you are an intermediate or experienced programmer, this book is intended to improve your skills as easily as possible.
