Written in a friendly tone, it shows readers how to write clear, concise programs that make maximum use of the power of C. It also details how to put together large programs, how to produce portable and efficient code, and how to use pointers to effectively organize and access data. The text begins with a gentle tutorial overview of C that introduces the basics of C programming. Then each topic is discussed in detail, with complete coverage of advanced data types and advanced program organization. Once the power of C is unveiled, the text arms readers with over 200 useful programs and functions, including a base converter, a histogram producer, C program cross-references, and more.
