For CS1 and other courses covering programming in C. Also appropriate as a supplement for upper-level courses where the instructor uses a book as a reference to the C language.

This comprehensive text is aimed at readers with little or no programming experience. Highly practical in approach, it introduces fundamental notions of structured programming and software engineering and gets up to speed quickly. The book covers not only the full C language, but includes a review of library functions and a solid introduction to C++, Java, and object-oriented programming.
