Overview

Ready, set, code! A user-friendly guide introducing the C programming language to new and intermediate coders 

The C programming language and its direct descendants are widespread and among the most popular programming languages used in the world today. The enduring popularity of C continues because C programs are fast, concise, and run on many different systems. Flexible and efficient, C is designed for a wide variety of programming tasks: system-level code, text processing, graphics, telecommunications, and many other application areas. C All-in-One Desk Reference For Dummies is for beginning and intermediate C programmers and provides a solid overview of the C programming language, from the basics to advanced concepts, with several exercises that give you real-world practice. 

C All-in-One Desk Reference For Dummies covers everything users need to get up to speed on C programming, including advanced topics to take their programming skill to the next level. Inside you’ll learn 

  • The entire development cycle of a C program: designing and developing the program, writing source code, compiling the code, linking the code to create the executable programs, debugging, and deployment 

  • The intricacies of writing the code-- the basic and not-so-basic building blocks that make up the source code 

  • Thorough coverage of keywords, program flow, conditional statements, constants and variables, numeric values, arrays, strings, functions, pointers, debugging, prototyping, and more 

  • Dozens of sample programs you can adapt and modify for your own use 

Written in plain English, this friendly guide also addresses some advanced programming topics, such as  

  • Programming for the Linux/Unix console 

  • Windows and Linux programming 

  • Graphics programming 

  • Games programming 

  • Internet and network programming 

  • Hardware programming projects 

The book includes a handy appendix that shows you how to set up your computer for programming, how to select and use a text editor, and fix up the compiler, to ensure you’re ready to work the author’s examples. Written by Dan Gookin, the author of the first-ever For Dummies book (and several others) who’s known for presenting complex material in an easy-to-understand way, this comprehensive guide makes learning the C programming language simple and fun. Grab your copy of C All-in-One Desk Reference For Dummies, so you can start coding your own programs.
