Understanding and Using C Pointersby Richard Reese
Synopses & Reviews
Improve your programming through a solid understanding of C pointers and memory management. With this practical book, youll learn how pointers provide the mechanism to dynamically manipulate memory, enhance support for data structures, and enable access to hardware. Author Richard Reese shows you how to use pointers with arrays, strings, structures, and functions, using memory models throughout the book.
Difficult to master, pointers provide C with much flexibility and power—yet few resources are dedicated to this data type. This comprehensive book has the information you need, whether youre a beginner or an experienced C or C++ programmer or developer.
Pointers are more involved than most programmers think and are frequently poorly understood. Comprehending and Using C Pointers will provide beginning and advanced C programmers with a comprehensive coverage of C pointers and illustrate good pointer programming habits, demonstrate the variety of ways they can be used. Comprehending and Using C Pointers will address an area that has been neglected and provide the deep understanding of pointers necessary to create a properly functioning application.
Although C is extensively use in industry applications, many aspects of pointers are not covered adequately in a typical C book. This book will use graphical models and comprehensive examples to illustrate key concepts and fundamentals of pointers, address compiler specific pointer techniques, and convey the dynamics of pointers and programming in general.
