I m sorry Stroustrup and Lippman You may have invented C and while many professionals read cover to cover anything you put on paper, have you ever tried teaching a course with one of your books This book is written by a professor specifically for teaching the concepts so the student can absorb them in little chunks Complete with examples, problems, and answers, it s a practical book for new or intermediate computer science students Albeit not very sexy. [[ EBOOK ]] ⇱ C++ Primer Plus ↚ C Primer Plus, Sixth Edition New CCoverage C Primer Plus is a carefully crafted, complete tutorial on one of the most significant and widely used programming languages today An accessible and easy to use self study guide, this book is appropriate for both serious students of programming as well as developers already proficient in other languages The sixth edition of C Primer Plus has been updated and expanded to cover the latest developments in C , including a detailed look at the new Cstandard Author and educator Stephen Prata has created an introduction to C that is instructive, clear, and insightful Fundamental programming concepts are explained along with details of the C language Many short, practical examples illustrate just one or two concepts at a time, encouraging readers to master new topics by immediately putting them to use Review questions and programming exercises at the end of each chapter help readers zero in on the most critical information and digest the most difficult concepts In C Primer Plus, you ll find depth, breadth, and a variety of teaching techniques and tools to enhance your learning A new detailed chapter on the changes and additional capabilities introduced in the Cstandard Complete, integrated discussion of both basic C language and additional C features Clear guidance about when and why to use a feature Hands on learning with concise and simple examples that develop your understanding a concept or two at a time Hundreds of practical sample programs Review questions and programming exercises at the end of each chapter to test your understanding Coverage of generic C gives you the greatest possible flexibility Teaches the ISO standard, including discussions of templates, the Standard Template

Standard C J Answers to Chapter Reviews A friend of mine asked me about a good book on C programming for an absolute beginner, i.e for a person without any programming experience At first I told him to choose a different programming language to start from, but he was reluctant to this idea, so I decided to quickly skim over few books on C programming for beginners to find one which would dogood than harm So far I read only one book on C that counts as a book for beginners, namely C How to Program by Harvey M Deitel A friend of mine asked me about a good book on C programming for an absolute

skim over few books on C programming for beginners to find one which would dogood than harm So far I read only one book on C that counts as a book for beginners, namely C How to Program by Harvey M Deitel and Paul J Deitel, and overall I think Deitel s book is a good one Or at least it was a good one, since I read at almost 10 years ago, so new editions might be worse Anyway, I decided to give few other books a try, and the first one on the list was C Primer Plus by Stephen Prata And after reading first 200 pages and skimming over the remainder of it I m quite disappointed The main issue of this book is that it teaches you C through C, i.e the author first shows how something can be done in C way and only then explain the analogous C way of doing things For instance, the reader is first introduced to C style strings and arrays with all their idiosyncrasies in details and only then and rather quickly to C standard classes std string and std vector that solve most of these idiosyncrasies This archaic way of teaching C is simply inappropriate in 21st century when C finally won its freedom from its C heritage Another issue is the inability of the author to concentrate on really important things without throwing an information of minor importance Often it looks like the only reason for discussing some topic is that the author just knows about it The author seems to care so little about is the topic actually necessary and suitable for a particular chapter, that sometimes I m even a bit suspicious does he have any plan Pulled this down from the shelf today for some pointers on a print driver Recalled what a darned good book this is for instruction sets with C Haven t pulled it since college and kicking meself for not going back to basics Easily used with clear examplesif you can t whip up a quick currency converter using the examples from this book, try another bookor another lang. This book covers a few topics that most of other books have not covered in detail explanations are very clear and easy to grasp, but examples seem off topic I mean, examples should only explain the discussed topic and no.besides, topics are not covered sequentially, which can be an advantage for readers who already know C and a disadvantage for who are not experienced on coding in C.I recommend reading astructured and easier to read book like Sams teaching yourself c in one ho This book covers a few topics that most of other books have not covered in detail explanations are very clear and easy to grasp, but examples seem off topic I mean, examples should only explain the discussed topic and no.besides, topics are not covered sequentially, which can be an advantage for readers who already know C and a disadvantage for who are not experienced on coding in C.I recommend reading astructured and easier to read book like Sams teaching yourself c in one hour a day, before reading this one.and I also do recommend reading this book afterwards, as it covers many topics that previous book was not covered in detail.happy coding in C If someone is just beginning to learn c and wants to follow know how approach then this IS the book for you This book will tell you everything and hardly miss out any point and it s enormous size is its proof Despite covering everything, this book throws topics very gently and in well organized fashion I ve tried other books on c too like Accelerated C , C Primer by Lippman, Let s us C etc and I found the content of Prata s book iseasy to digest And those who are thinking ab If someone is just beginning to learn c and wants to follow know how approach then this IS the book for you This book will tell you everything and hardly miss out any point and it s enormous size is its proof Despite covering everything, this book throws topics very gently and in well organized fashion I ve tried other books on c too like Accelerated C , C Primer by Lippman, Let s us C etc and I found the content of Prata s book iseasy to digest And those who are thinking about The C programming language by Bjarne stroustrup then let me tell you that Stroustrup book is about why of the languages You will probably findanswers there but only if you get that deep Stroustrup book, I think, is little bitcomplex and overwhelming at first Thus, not very suitable for beginners but yes, it s better than Prata s only if you already understand some part of it I would suggest everyone that first read Prata and then go for the Stroustrup s book it so nice book , Interesting and And confusing, but in some cases Want to learn a progamming language This text is must, provided you can figure out how to utilize your compiler I m going to try to keep my impressions of C separate from my impressions of this book C has challenged me in a serious way, and while I admire its power and depth, often it s a bit much Conceiving of a coherent way to introduce the many main topics and rabbit holes of the language poses a serious challenge Prata does his best to acknowledge everything the language offers as he guides the reader through C Features that could be brushed over on first pass often lead to a digression befo I m going to try to keep my impressions of C separate from my impressions of this book C has challenged me in a serious way, and while I admire its power and depth, often it s a bit much Conceiving of a coherent way to introduce the many main topics and rabbit holes of the language poses a serious challenge Prata does his best to acknowledge everything the language offers as he guides the reader through C Features that could be brushed over on first pass often lead to a digression before an eventual return This frustrates me as a reader, but it also makes me recognize that Prata does not wish to neglect aspects of the language by providing a dumbed down explanation that will fail to pass muster when the reader learnsIt s not the best way to do a book for beginners, though There are many other books recommended for beginners here.That being said, I benefited greatly from this book Its depth made looking up simple question cumbersome at times I picked up this for that purpose That depth did have benefits though I m already familiar with many of the topics that will be covered in my next C class having read this If you re self studying, or looking for an intro to the language, there have got to be some better options out there ,.
