A Programming Classic


With more than 30 years under its belt, the C programming language still remains one of the most important computer languages to date. Languages like Perl and Java might have secured permanent niches in certain areas of programming, but one must keep in mind that they their own compilers were written in C languages, and both use structures and styles derived from C.
In short, this book is a classic in the field of computer programming, but it is no less relevant today. Kernigham and Ritchie start the reader from the very beginning with discussions of variables and functions, and keep their discussion of C in very stripped down and simple terms. Using C libraries can get you very far these days as a programmer, but if you want to know how those functions work, you will enjoy a very nice introduction in this book. You will make your own functions like strcat, atoi and so on using the most basic C commands. This approach to programming really helps the new programmer think for themselves.
I also like the problems and questions throughout the book. Kernigham and Ritchie definitely want the reader to be actively learning C and not just be a passive reader.
In short, this book is an excellent starting point for someone wanting to learn C, or for someone who is starting out in programming. Its also a classic that should definitely be on any career programmer's shelf.

A must have for every serious Perl programmer.


You want to know something about Perl? Larry Wall is among my list of 3 people that I will certainly listen to. Of course if you ask the three people I have in mind (Larry Wall, Damian Conway and Randall Schwartz) you will no doubt come up with three different answers.
That aside, this is the book for you if you are serious about programming in the language dubbed "The Duct Tape of the Internet."
