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!

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.

This is a nice short reference with a few gems here and there but don't get excited because it seriously needs updating especially the index on string functions and memory allocation.

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...

It's a decent reference text that actually fits in the breast pocket of your smoking jacket. What more could a gentleman coder want.

Great product very useful. I take it every where that I go because it is small enough to fit in you front pocket.
