This is one of the first books you should read, when starting any language derived from C as all are nearly syntactically identical. This book together with Kochan helped me learn C, which quickly became my favorite programming language and remained so for many years.
Well, in reality it’s just that, hyped. Because the book was co-authored by the original language designer, and because the first edition of the book served for many years as the de facto standard for the language, the book was regarded by many kerjighan be the authoritative reference on C.
What language are most libraries on most operating systems written in if not assembler? I’ve recently developed a curmudgeonly fondness regarding FORTRAN, largely due to an absence of pointer-aliasing issues and thus massively simplified construction of optimizing compilers. Working through these exercises has helped me with logical thinking and having a better understanding of coding closer to the machine has improved me as a developer overall.
Found myself rereading this the other day, after recommending Chapter 8 to a young engineer seeking the Truth behind malloc Truth be told, it’s in ways not even an acceptable language. As for me I was just trying brush up the knowledge I had about this subject but didn’t find the book that useful. If you’re into stuff like this, you can read the full review.

InApril, the second edition of the book was published, updated to cover the changes to the language resulting from the then-new ANSI C kernihan, particularly with the inclusion of reference material on standard libraries.

Combine C in a Nutshell with Summit’s C Programming FAQs and you have the entire Regardless of the fact that the architect of the language is a co-author, this book is simply not a good book on discussing the intricacies of C, a language replete with low-level details defining its behavior.
It is rarely the case that a developer looks into the code for these if she’s not a C developer herself.
The C Programming Language, Second Edition
Sep 24, Lucius rated it really liked it. C hasn’t change much, but there is some new development that is obviously not covered. The influence of The C Programming Language on programmers, a generation of whom first worked with C in universities and industry, has led many rithie accept the authors’ programming style and conventions as recommended practice, if not normative practice.
Specifically, I feel like this book lacks a deep and thorough discussion of standard library functions, which, in my opinion, is the most important toolkit for anyone starting out. Readable and usable for beginner and experienced alike! Don’t read this book to learn C — that a skill fewer and fewer people need to master. I read most of this book as an introduction to the Ritcuie Programming language for a college course.
We have refined the original examples, and have added new examples in several krnighan.
Appendix C is a concise summary of the changes from the original version. I rate it 5 stars because it really deserves it. Computer Science book writers and publishers: Discover Prime Book Box for Kids.
This book is a fascinating read and has great discussions about the implementations of classic UNIX commands and other systems programming topics. Dec 07, Nick Progrraming rated it it was amazing Recommended to Nick by: RIP Ritchie and long live Kernigan! While I certainly don’t disagree with the designation of this book as a “classic,” I would recommend the kernigban guy to the C club in or later look somewhere else.
Re-reads constantly found me more avenues to explore using their basics. Oct 08, Ulas Tuerkmen rated it it was amazing.
His explanation of structures is of advanced level which is a requirement. In other words, I wish this book didn’t tell me so much how, for example, malloc might be implemented, but rather give me a more abstract view of how I might use it.
