It's the only C reference that fits in your pocket and is an excellent companion to O'Reilly's other C books.Ideal as an introduction for beginners and a quick reference for advanced programmers, the C Pocket Reference consists of two parts: a compact description of the C language and a thematically structured reference to the standard library. The representation of the language is based on the ANSI standard and includes extensions introduced in 1999. An index is included to help you quickly find the information you need.This small book covers the following:

  • C language fundamentals
  • Data types
  • Expressions and operators
  • C statements
  • Declarations
  • Functions
  • Preprocessor directives
