0 Reviews
The C programming language was created as a mid level language that has the power of a higher level language like Pascal, while staying close to the underlying system language. This combination of power and flexibility makes C the perfect language for both beginning and experienced programmers. Although C++ has grown in popularity, this is simply an extension to C, and most programmers are advised to get a solid grounding in C before progressing to C++. This book is for the true beginner to programming. Ivor's excellent teaching style supports the newcomer through the first stages of programming and introduces them to some of the fascinating and challenging possibilities that lie ahead.
