This comprehensive book teaches the reader how to design and write portable elementary, intermediate and advanced batch and interactive ANSI C programs in their entirety, that are easy to read, debug, modify and maintain. The book and accompanying programs comprise a total package designed to satisfy all ANSI C needs in any of the programming environments that embrace the C Standard. The authors incorporate a build-as-you go method beginning the text with a complete billing application programming problem and progressively solving the problem chapter by chapter as programming knowledge grows thereby training the reader to develop programs in a modular, top-down way, as well as maintain and modify code. It also provides useful techniques for maintaining and modifying older “legacy” programs and covers information processing and system concepts.
