I actually just bought a used version for $8, you have to click on the listing to find the lower prices...RECOMMENDATION: A Reference Book for C Programmers
I have written a few lines of C code and would like to share a helpful book. I like to have it nearby when programming in C. I bought two copies - one at work and one at home (or sometimes in my laptop case).
C: A Reference Manual
Samuel P. Harbison III, Guy L. Steele Jr.
ISBN 0-13-089592-X (from the back of my copy)
ISBN-10 : 9780130895929
ISBN-13 : 978-0130895929
The selling price at Amazon is way too high. Find a used copy for a reasonable price.
This is NOT a cover-to-cover read for people to learn C. It is a reference book for people who know enough C to write code, but need to look up the subtle behaviors of C language constructs. This book documents exactly how the C compiler behaves in every possible situation, including the pre-processor and all those weird corner cases. I said "every possible situation" and still "assert" that it is true - I never found anything in C that was not covered by this book.
I'll take your word for it that it's good, i haven't bought a paperback coding book in a while...however, those c languages haven't really changed much, so it shouldn't be a problem. Just new standards added, C11 is the latest.
