Product Description

From the Publisher

Ideal as an introduction for beginners and a quick reference for advanced programmers, the C Pocket Reference consists of two parts: a compact description of the C language and a thematically structured reference to the standard library. The representation of the language is based on the ANSI standard and includes extensions introduced in 1999. An index is included to help you quickly find information the information you need.

Format: Paperback
This reference is remarkably complete, well-written and useful. It is probably not for the absolute beginner, but indispensable for those wanting a terse description of the C language and a well organized reference to the standard library. It also includes ANSI C99 features such as restrict pointers, complex functions, floating-point exceptions, and more.
What I like about it in particular is that ANSI C99 features are indicated with an asterisk. So as a C newcomer you will learn the most up-to-date version of the language, while as an advanced programmer you can easily find the recent extensions.
I highly recommend this book!

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent little book providing a quick and easy way to look up the syntax and usage of the C language. It is very well organised and the contents section enables the desired information to be quickly found. It is not a 'Teach yourself' book for the C language. It is, however, very useful when looking at already written code to understand how the code works. I would highly recommend it as a concise easy to use reference alongside another book designed to teach the language. Additionally it is an excellent memory jogger once the basics of the language have ben learned.

Bought this as a short, cheap summary of C99 language features. Useful for someone who already knows previous C language versions, but, wouldn't be any good for someone to learn C from scratch.

Exactly as you expect. Good quality, excellent reference book. Had this book a while, and it sits on my desk along with the perl books, regex, etc. Good stuff...

A concise reference but perhaps a little too concise. However, it is an easy-to-use, quick reference that does cover the more important aspects of the language.
