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
