C How to Program uses the following features to facilitate learning:
Deitels’ signature “Live-Code” approach allows students to run full programs as they learn key concepts.
A focus on performance issues relates the text to real world, as developers of performance-intensive systems often code in C or C++.
Unparalleled breadth and depth of programming concepts and intermediate-level topics for further study
Hundreds of complete, working programs
Comprehensive Introduction to C compatible with all major operating systems
UPDATED! New information has been added throughout the text to maintain relevancy of key concepts and discussions.
UPDATED! Clear and carefully-paced pedagogy for introductory courses
For courses in computer programming
C How to Program is a comprehensive introduction to programming in C. Like other texts of the Deitels’ How to Program series, the book serves as a detailed beginner source of information for college students looking to embark on a career in coding, or instructors and software-development professionals seeking to learn how to program with C.
The Eighth Edition continues the tradition of the signature Deitel “Live Code” approach--presenting concepts in the context of full-working programs rather than incomplete snips of code. This gives readers a chance to run each program as they study it and see how their learning applies to real world programming scenarios.
