It has been said that C is a dream for professionals, but a nightmare for beginners. This elementary-level book is expressly designed so that beginners can avoid those nightmares. It presents a carefully chosen subset of C powerful enough for solving non-trivial programming problems, yet simple enough so that a novice can steer clear of the pitfalls. Halpern uses experiments to guide readers into discovering things for themselves and directs them in learning many of the subtleties and intricacies of C through hands-on examples. Chapters cover all the basics of this increasingly important subject, from pointers and arrays to structures, files, and recursion. All experiments are discussed in the appendix. The author's inviting and highly accessible writingstyle is especially appealing to novice programming enthusiasts.
