Kernighan, Brian W.

The C programming language second edition/Kernighan, Brian W. and Ritchie, Dennis M. - New Jersey: Prentice Hall  PTR, 1988. - 272 p. 25 cm. ISBN: 978-0131103627

Summary: The C Programming Language (1978, rev. 1988) is rather totally the most important book ever written about computer science. The centrality and ubiquity of C programming language have a special meaning which has to search far and wide to find a newer computer language that does not importantly incorporate elements from it. Ones of C's inventors, Dennis Ritchie and Brian Kernighan produce a slim introduction to C language as defined by the ANSI standard. This new version helps readers keep up with the finalized ANSI standard for C while showing how to take advantage of C's rich set of operators, economy of expression, improved control flow, and data structures. Starting with the basic "Hello World" program, the book has been completely rewritten with additional examples and problem sets to clarify the implementation of difficult language constructs.
