Learning a language--any language--involves a process wherein you learn to rely less and less on instruction and more increasingly on the aspects of the language you've mastered. Whether you're learning French, Java, or C, at some point you'll set aside the tutorial and attempt to converse on your own. It's not necessary to know every subtle facet of French in order to speak it well, especially if there's a good dictionary available. Likewise, C programmers don't need to memorize every detail of C in order to write good programs. What they need instead is a reliable, comprehensive reference that they can keep nearby. C in a Nutshell is that reference. This long-awaited book is a complete reference to the C programming language and C runtime library. Its purpose is to serve as a convenient, reliable companion in your day-to-day work as a C programmer. C in a Nutshell covers virtually everything you need to program in C, describing all the elements of the language and illustrating their use with numerous examples. The book is divided into three distinct parts. The first part is a fast-paced description, reminiscent of the classic Kernighan & Ritchie text on which many C programmers cut their teeth. It focuses specifically on the C language and preprocessor directives, including extensions introduced to the ANSI standard in 1999. These topics and others are covered: Numeric constants Implicit and explicit type conversions Expressions and operators Functions Fixed-length and variable-length arrays Pointers Dynamic memory management Input and output The second part of the book is a comprehensive reference to the C runtime library; it includes an overview of the contents of the standard headers and a description of each standard library function. Part III provides the necessary knowledge of the C programmer's basic tools: the compiler, the make utility, and the debugger. The tools described here are those in the GNU software collection. C in a Nutshell is the perfect companion to K&R, and destined to be the most reached-for reference on your desk.
C -- kurz & gut besteht aus zwei Teilen: einer kompakten Beschreibung der Sprache und einer thematisch strukturierten Referenz zur Standardbibliothek. Die Darstellung der Sprache basiert auf dem ANSI-Standard und geht auch auf die Erweiterungen im neuen Standard von 1999 (kurz ANSI C99) ein. Die darin eingeführten neuen Datentypen, Funktionen und Makros sind zur besseren Orientierung immer gekennzeichnet, da diese Erweiterungen noch nicht bei allen C-Compilern implementiert sind. Ein knapper Index hilft beim Finden der Funktionen, Typen und anderer Syntax-Elemente. Aus dem Inhalt: Grundlagen Datentypen Ausdrücke und Operatoren Anweisungen Deklarationen Funktionen Präprozessor-Direktiven Die Standardbibliothek
C is one of the oldest programming languages and still one of the most widely used. Whether you're an experienced C programmer or you're new to the language, you know how frustrating it can be to hunt through hundreds of pages in your reference books to find that bit of information on a certain function, type or other syntax element.
