What sets this book apart in the crowded shelves of C Programming books is simplicity and its narration style. These two have been the most distinguishing features of all the previous 6 editions of this book. Today's C programmer has to not only master the complexities and intricacies of the language but also has to contend with its usage in environments like Windows and Linux. This book covers all these three aspects of C Programming very well. This book doesn't assume any programming background. It begins with the basics and steadily builds the pace so that the reader finds it easy to handle complicated topics towards the end. Each chapter has been designed to create a deep and lasting impression on the reader's mind. "If taught through examples, any concept becomes easy to grasp". This book follows this dictum faithfully. Yashavant has crafted well thought out programming examples for every aspect of C Programming. Some of the highlighting features of the book are: Traditional C Programming: Pointers, Complete build process, Low-level File I/O, Structures, Unions, Bit-fields, Bitwise Operators, Creating Function Libraries; C Under Linux: Signals and Signal Handling; Blocking of Signals; Event Driven Programming; Process, PIDs, Zombies; Forking of Process; GNOME Programming Using GTK Library; C Under Windows: Windows Programming Model; Windows Messaging Architecture; Mouse Programming; Hardware Interaction; and Windows Hooks.
