Reliable Quick reference


This is such a great book, that its difficult to speak highly enough of it. Not only is it a great book for the subject area that it covers - it also should be used as a textbook for other editors, writers and publishing houses on how to put together a good technology book. The main advantages are that it excludes all superfluous backgruond/marketing lingo. This means that the book is useful and relevant from the first page - rather than the 3rd chapter. This book is rather let down by bad typography and formatting. It could have been made to look easier on the eye - giving it the initial mpression of a dense techie book. Don't let that put you off, persevere - and you will find the content loaded with insights, pointers to be aware about, and a natural flair for good teaching.

A Classic.


Not a book for beginners trying to acquaint themselves with the language, but a tremendous reference book for those who are moving to C from another programming language or who want to fully exploit the raw potential of this language. Look at the shelf of any C programmer. You'll invariably see one or another edition of this book.

There is little to none 3d programming in here but i got more then my moneys worth in getting this book.
