Expert C programming

Expert C programming

350 pages, parution le 30/04/1994


Written for experienced C programmers who want to quickly pick up some of the insights and techniques of experts and master the fine arts of ANSI C, this volume passes on the wisdom of a highly experienced C compiler writer and his colleagues to help programmers reach new heights, and avoid common software pitfalls along the way. Using an original approach and a humorous style that makes deep knowledge both easy and accessible, it gathers into one place, tips, hints, shortcuts, guidelines, ideas, idioms, heuristics, tools, anecdotes, C folklore, and techniques that are often penciled in margins and on backs of papers by those working in the programming trenches—working on many different kinds of projects, over many, many years.


  • completely up-to-date with ANSI C.
  • acknowledges the human side of computer programming—too often overlooked by other writers.
  • applies ANSI standard C as found on PCs and Unix systems.
  • covers unique aspects of C relating to sophisticated hardware typically found on Unix platforms (virtual memory, etc.).
  • uses the terminology of ANSI throughout, along with translations into ordinary English where needed.
  • contains boxed Programming Challenges and Handy Heuristics (ideas, rules-of thumb, or guidelines that work in practice).
  • includes one of the best introductions to C++, and the rationale behind it.
  • covers many topics that many C programmers find confusing: What does typedef struct bar {int bar} actually mean? How can I pass differently-sized multi-dimensional arrays to one function? What's the difference between char *foo[] and char (*foo)[]? What's a bus error? What's a segmentation violation?
  • contains many interesting C stories and folklore, such as the January 1990 slowdown of the entire AT&T phone network (caused by a C bug).
