C isn’t just the foundation for most modern programming languages: it’s a great solution for programs ranging from games to mobile apps. Now, you can painlessly master the newest version of C, and quickly start writing solid, useful code. C Programming Absolute Beginner’s Guide is the fastest way to get comfortable and productive with C11, even if you’re utterly new to C - or to programming! This friendly, practical book will help you do exactly what you want, one incredibly clear and easy step at a time. World-renowned tech tutorial author Greg Perry reveals C11’s power, and helps you quickly take advantage of it. He provides step-by-step instructions for every task requiring more than one step, many code samples, and screenshots guiding you through complex processes. You’ll learn all the basics, including how to organize a program, store and display data, and work with variables, operators, I/O, pointers, arrays, and functions. Perry presents updated information on the latest C compilers for Windows, OS X, and Linux, as well as valuable new material on C programming for mobile and game development.
