C is what the world is breathing today. And books on C are filling bookshelves like believers converging on a holy bank, but here’s a pilgrimage that’s a different kind of voyage. The C odyssey. Written in an easy, riveting and readable style, the book touches heights that few have reached and offers insights that nobody has divined.
The C odyssey is for those who’d like to learn C and for those who have learned C. Garnished with small programs, followed by in-depth explanations, the journey takes the beginner by the hand, breaking him into the mold, taking him up to a point, and letting him free to explore on his own.The platform covered is wide and diverse.From C under dos to C under unix, Windows,OS/2, and its interfaces with networking and relational databases.
The Odyssey has a seven stop itinerary. Unserialized and district, but threaded by him silken bonds to each other.The saga is a lengthy one, through lands that have been visited separately before. Speaking the same language from different podiums, they abet an undisrupted flow of thought.
Odyssey 1: DOS-The chartered waters. DOS is the most familiar ocean that computer buffs would have traveled. Perhaps because of this familiarity, perhaps despite it, every PC user seems to have a wish list of things DOS forgot or could do better. With C, you are afforded the opportunity to sink your teeth into these limitations, tear them asunder and patch the loopholes.This volume takes you for basics of C to screen handling, the fascinating world of pointers, slipping gradually into such esoteric stops as link lists and binary trees.It also introduces a tonic to C, the power library, vitamin c, that beefs up and multiplies the versatility of C.
