Expert C Programming: Deep C Secrets
SunSoft Press, 1994 - 353 strani
Written for experienced C programmers who want to quickly pick up 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 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--working on many different kinds of projects, over many, many years. KEY TOPICS: Each chapter is divided into self-contained sections. Includes extended discussions of major topics such as declarations and arrays/pointers; offers a great many hints and mnemonics; covers topics that many C programmers find confusing; and features one of the best introductions to C++, and the rationale behind it. Throughout, technical details are interspersed with many true stories of how C programming works in practice, and each chapter ends with an amusing C story or piece of software folklore. MARKET: For software engineers and computer programmers who are writing, developing, testing, debugging software on either IBM PCs or Unix systems.

A very enjoyable read. Not only will you learn aspects of C in great detail (the section on pointers vs. array is excellent), but the author writes in a witty manner I haven't typically found in programming books. (The style reminded me a bit of Programming Perl by Larry Wall.) Celotno mnenje
