      Ideal for students new to object-oriented programming, C, and any other C languages--Includes introductory material that assumes no knowledge of programming.

Will help students master C regardless of the programming skills they already have.

  Broad coverage of C techniques--Starts with a clear introduction to the fundamentals of C programming; then covers variables, data types, arithmetic expressions, program looping, making decisions, arrays, functions, structures, character strings, pointers, bit operations, preprocessing, I/O, and more.

Prepares students for whatever challenges they are likely to encounter while programming with C, while providing a firm foundation in the key concepts and techniques theyll constantly rely upon.

  By Steven Kochan, author of several renowned programming classics, including Unix Shell Programming--Authored by an expert who has helped thousands of students and professionals master programming.

Gives students confidence that they are receiving information that is thorough, accurate, clear, and useful--and reflects the challenges they will actually face.

  Language summary, Standard C Library introduction, guide to gcc compilation, and more--Includes comprehensive C reference features.

Gives students resources they can use as working C programmers.

  Small program examples and well-crafted exercises--Provides step-by-step, hands-on experience that begins with simple tasks and gradually builds to more complex, professional-quality techniques.

Helps students build their expertise incrementally as they gradually gain increasing confidence in their skills.

  Guide to common programming mistakes--Lists and explains the most common errors C programmers make.

Helps students build more robust and reliable code without having to learn from mistakes the hard way, through trial and error.

          Author Bio

      Stephen Kochan has been developing software with the C programming language for over 20 years. He is the author and coauthor of several bestselling titles on the C language, including Programming in C, Programming in ANSI C, and Topics in C Programming, and several Unix titles, including Exploring the Unix System, Unix Shell Programming, and Unix System Security. Mr. Kochan's most recent title, Programming in Objective-C, is a tutorial on an object-oriented programming language that is based on C.
