C Primer Plus is a carefully tested, well-crafted, and complete tutorial on a subject core to programmers and developers. This computer science classic teaches principles of programming, including structured code and top-down design.


Author and educator Stephen Prata has created an introduction to C that is instructive, clear, and insightful. Fundamental programming concepts are explained along with details of the C language. Many short, practical examples illustrate just one or two concepts at a time, encouraging readers to master new topics by immediately putting them to use.


Review questions and programming exercises at the end of each chapter bring out the most critical pieces of information and help readers understand and digest the most difficult concepts. A friendly and easy-to-use self-study guide, this book is appropriate for serious students of programming, as well as developers proficient in other languages with a desire to better understand the fundamentals of this core language.


The sixth edition of this book has been updated and expanded to cover the latest developments in C as well as to take a detailed look at the new C11 standard. In C Primer Plus you’ll find depth, breadth, and a variety of teaching techniques and tools to enhance your learning:


  • Complete, integrated discussion of both C language fundamentals and additional features
  • Clear guidance about when and why to use different parts of the language
  • Hands-on learning with concise and simple examples that develop your understanding of a concept or two at a time
  • Hundreds of practical sample programs
  • Review questions and programming exercises at the end of each chapter to test your understanding
  • Coverage of generic C to give you the greatest flexibility

(excluding newlines, because the count++; statement gets skipped when ch is a newline) and echoes them, except for newlines. When the continue statement is executed, the next expression evaluated is the loop test condition. For a for loop, the next actions are to evaluate the update expression and then the loop test expression. Consider the following loop, for example: Click here to view code image for (count = 0; count < 10; count++) { ch = getchar(); if (ch == '\n') continue;

for Backspace. In each case, the escape sequence begins with the backslash character, \. We’ll return to this subject in Chapter 3, “Data and C.” Well, that explains why the three printf() statements produced only two lines: The first print instruction didn’t have a newline character in it, but the second and third did. The final printf() line brings up another oddity: What happened to the %d when the line was printed? As you will recall, the output for this line was Click here to view code

are stored in the computer: integer types and floating-point types. * * * Bits, Bytes, and Words The terms bit, byte, and word can be used to describe units of computer data or to describe units of computer memory. We’ll concentrate on the second usage here. The smallest unit of memory is called a bit. It can hold one of two values: 0 or 1. (Or you can say that the bit is set to “off” or “on.”) You can’t store much information in one bit, but a computer has a tremendous stock of them. The
