C is the premier language of choice for writing systems software. Most work on developing operating systems, compilers and applications packages is performed in C as C allows low-level control of operations as well as the ease of use of a high-level structured language. This book examines how to program in C and demonstrates the process of compilation from source code to relocatable code through the linker to object code. With examples ranging from object-oriented versions of C to interactive C compilers, the emphasis is on showing how real systems work. There are appendices of BCPL (the forerunner to C), the UNIX operating system, and standard C syntax. This book is intended for undergraduates and tertiary level students on Computer Science/Computer Studies courses. Programmers in industry who need a practical knowledge of C.
