The first edition ofC Programming: A Modern Approachwas popular with students and faculty alike because of its clarity and comprehensiveness as well as its trademark Q&A sections. Professor King's spiral approach made it accessible to a broad range of readers, from beginners to more advanced students. With adoptions at over 225 colleges, the first edition was one of the leading C textbooks of the last ten years. The second edition maintains all the book's popular features and brings it up to date with coverage of the C99 standard. The new edition also adds a significant number of exercises and longer programming projects, and includes extensive revisions and updates. Highlights of the second edition include: Complete coverage of both the C89 standard and the C99 standard, with all C99 changes clearly marked A quick reference to all C89 and C99 library functions Expanded coverage of GCC New coverage of abstract data types Updates to reflect today's CPUs and operating systems Nearly 500 exercises and programming projects-sixty percent more than in the first edition Source code and solutions to selected exercises and programming projects A password-protected instructor site containing solutions to the remaining exercises and projects, plus PowerPoint presentations for most chapters
