The Ultimate Resource on C?Thoroughly Updated for the New C Standard.

A new ANSI/ISO standard for C, called C99, has been recently adopted and Herb Schildt, the world's leading programming author, has updated and expanded his best-selling reference on C to cover it. Whether you are a beginning C programmer or a seasoned pro, the answers to all your C questions can be found in this one-stop resource. In this authoritative guide, Schildt details the C language, its libraries, and applications, providing insider tips, hundreds of examples, and expertly crafted explanations. As a special bonus, the book concludes by developing a C interpreter, which you can use as-is or expand on your own! And just as you'd expect, everything is presented in the clear, concise, uncompromising style that has made Herb the choice of millions.

Inside you'll find:

  • Comprehensive coverage of the C language, including both C89 (the original version of C) and the new features added by C99
  • Detailed explanations of each keyword, data type, and operator
  • In-depth discussions of pointers, disk I/O, and dynamic allocation
  • Complete descriptions of the entire C function library
  • Descriptions of the new features added by C99, such as restricted pointers, Boolean and complex data types, the inline keyword, variable-length arrays, and the long data types
  • Real-world algorithms and applications, such as stacks, queues, trees, sparse arrays, and sorting. You'll even learn about Al-based searching techniques
  • Tips on working efficiently in the C programming environment
  • Advice on porting and debugging
  • Complete source code for a C interpreter that you can use as-is enhance to fit your needs

Peter Seebach, November 9, 2009 (view all comments by Peter Seebach)
I haven't read the fourth edition of this book. I read the second and third. They were horrible.

The author blurb is misleading. It's true that Schildt was a member of the C committee -- but no one I talked to during my decade of active participation recalled ever seeing him at meetings or seeing any participation. Membership is just something you could buy; participation would have taken effort.

The previous editions were full of painful errors, and I don't have any obvious reason to think the fourth is better. While some of the errors are just overly-specific information about DOS and Windows environments, some of them are just plain wrong for any environment, and if you can't trust a reference to tell you the truth about the language, it's not much use.
