5.0 out of 5 stars Very nice!, 21 Sep 2006

This review is from: C in a Nutshell (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly)) (Paperback)
This book is a very good reference companion while programming in C, not only does it remind you how to program but it also provides details of the standard library that might help you code your programs.

The book is very well organised, it is clear, concise, and it is quite an interesting book to read!

Overall I give it 5 STARS

4.0 out of 5 stars Heavy going, 14 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: C in a Nutshell (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly)) (Paperback)
Bought this to learn C so I can program micro-controllers. Find it very heavy going and you need to be persistent. It is, however, a very useful book and one which I keep by me most of the time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Look for a cow on the cover Practical C not C++, 25 April 2010

This review is from: C in a Nutshell (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly)) (Paperback)
Look for a cow on the cover of this book. I bought this book for a C in UNIX class. The C part is great.

There is hardly a page that does not have an example or enlightening diagram. However, the only reference to applying this to UNIX is in the back where it "Practically" says that there are different versions of UNIX. It never really clamed to be a UNIX book on C. The section on unbufferd I/O has a little more on the UNIX handling of files. Over all, until something better comes along I am still using this book.
