This significantly revised edition has been carefully designed to meet the needs of readers new to C. The reader moves easily through the fundamentals of C and on to its latest applications by means of a time-tested explanatory tool called dissection, first developed by the authors in 1984. Dissection, a pedagogical method similar to a structured, step-by-step walk-through, explains new programming elements and idioms as they are encountered in working code. Right from the start, the authors introduce the reader to complete programs, and at an early point in the text the reader learns to write functions, an important feature of structured programming. Highlights of the new edition *ANSI C used throughout. *Thoroughly tested code available via ftp and compatible with most C systems. *More extensive coverage of functions and pointers, which are typical stumbling blocks for the beginner. *Early coverage of multifile programs enables the programmer to write properly modular code and produce and use libraries. *Early explanation of simple recursion parallels its early introduction in beginning computer science courses.* Greater in-depth treatment of recursion reflects computer scientists' increasing use of C for implementing sophisticated algorithms. *Additional coverage of program correctness and type safety. *New section on two-dimensional arrays reflects the growing use of C by computer scientists and engineers. *New optional "Moving to C++" sections at the end of each chapter offer a preview of the C++ object-oriented extensions of C. 0805331492B04062001
