from the back cover: "This book combines the two most popular computing tools on the scene today: the C Programming Language and the IBM Personal Computer. It is written for intermediate- to advanced-level programmers who wish to take full advantage of the unparalleled speed and power of the C programming language. This self-teaching guide simplifies the learning process by making extensive use of C language syntax diagrams - literally "road maps" of the language - to guide you every step fo the way. A bonus pull-out wall chart for ready reference shows the complete C language syntax. This book not only teaches you how to program in C, it actually demonstrates the practical use of each feature of the language. here's how: In each chapter, Part I introduces and explains tutorially each new feature of the language and immediately shows its use with a few brief examples. And the book goes much further. part 2 of each chapter applies and integrates the language features introduced in Part I to build two real-world applications programs: an Arithmetic Express Calculator and a Stock Portfolio Analysis package. these two "life-sized" programs are developed in structure, top-down fashion and are refined in each successive chapter, as new features of the language are introduced. This applications-oriented approach naturally leads to in-depth treatment of IBM PC-specific topics that cannot be covered in generic C language books. These include table-driven design, conditional compilation, memory mapped I/O, the use of libraries, IBM PC debugging tools, dynamic memory management, pointers to functions, and much more. All you need to get started are an IBM PC or PC-clone and a compatible C compiler. A uniquely effective blend of theory, practice, and coverage!"
