Features & benefits
  • all examples have been tested, which is in machine-readable form.
  • it discusses various aspects of C in more detail, although the emphasis is on examples of complete programs, rather than isolated fragments.
  • it deals with basic data types, operators and expressions.
  • covers functions and program structure, external variables, scope rules, multiple source files, and also touches on the preprocessor.
  • it also describes an interface between C programs and the UNIX operating system, concentrating on input/output, the file system, and storage allocation.
  • it also provides a language reference manual. The official statement of the syntax and semantics of C is the ANSI standard.
Author biography

Brian W. Kernighan received his BASc from the University of Toronto in 1964 and a PhD in electrical engineering from Princeton in 1969. He was a member of the Computing Science Research center at Bell Labs until 2000, and is now a professor in the Computer Science Department at Princeton. He was a co-creator of several programming languages, including AWK, AMPL, and a number of tools for document preparation. He is the co-author of 10 books and some technical papers, and holds 4 patents. He was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2002. His research areas include programming languages, tools and interfaces that make computers easier to use, often for non-specialist users. 

 

Dennis Ritchie was a computer scientist.
