Author: Bryan Costales

Now there's a painless way to learn the C programming language!

This book gives you a clear step-by-step introduction to C as it is used on microcomputers and large multi-user systems. You'll find complete coverage of the C keywords and functions found in C's standard library. The numerous programming examples deal with everyday applications rather than abstract mathematical computations. And the learning process is made more enjoyable by the author's offbeat, fresh style. You'll soon find yourself writing useful and meaningful programs in C even if you have no prior programming experience.

This is the first of a series of three books, each of which teaches progressively thornier problems to solve.

Part 1 (this book) introduces all the essential aspects of the C language itself.
Part 2 shows how to build complex projects using make and autoconf.
Part 3 shows how to write multi-threaded, asynchronous, and/or graphic programs.
