Expert C Programming: Deep C Secrets US$42.99

Expert C Programming: Deep C Secrets

Expert C Programming: Deep C Secrets is written for experienced C programmers who want to quickly acquire 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 all these 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.

384 pages, softcover


  • 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} 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)


  • Introduction
