Beginning C From Novice to Professional – Ivor Horton – 5th Edition

Description

C is the programming language of choice when speed and reliability are required. It is used for many low-level tasks, such as device drivers and operating-system programming. For example, much of Windows and Linux is based on C programming. The updated 4th edition of Beginning C builds on the strengths of its predecessors to offer an essential guide for anyone who wants to learn C or desires a ‘brush-up’ in this compact, fundamental language. This classic from author, lecturer and respected academic Ivor Horton is the essential guide for anyone looking to learn the C language from the ground up.

It is the basis for the C++ that is widely used in a great many contexts, including the GNU Project. It underlies the Linux operating system and many of its utilities. Learning C provides a strong foundation for any programming care, and will even help you better understand more modern languages such as Java.

Beginning C is written by renowned author Ivor Horton. The book increases your programming expertise by guiding you through the development of fully working C applications that use what you’ve learned in a practical context. You’ll also be able to strike out on your own by trying the exercises included at the end of each chapter. At the end of the book you’ll be confident in your skills with all facets of the widely-used and powerful C language.
