Throw out your old ideas of C, and relearn a programming language thatís substantially outgrown its origins. With 21st Century C , youíll discover up-to-date techniques that are absent from every other C text available. C isnít just the foundation of modern programming languages, it is a modern language, ideal for writing efficient, state-of-the-art applications. Learn to dump old habits that made sense on mainframes, and pick up the tools you need to use this evolved and aggressively simple language. No matter what programming language you currently champion, youíll agree that C rocks.

  • Explore problematic C concepts that are too useful to throw out
  • Solve Cís string-building problems with C-standard and POSIX-standard functions
