About the Technology

C is extraordinarily modern for a 50-year-old programming language. Whether you’re writing embedded code, low-level system routines, or high-performance applications, C is up to the challenge. This unique book, based on the latest C standards, exposes a modern perspective of this tried-and-true language.

About the book

Modern C introduces you to modern day C programming, emphasizing the unique and new features of this powerful language. For new C coders, it starts with fundamentals like structure, grammar, compilation, and execution. From there, you’ll advance to control structures, data types, operators, and functions, as you gain a deeper understanding of what’s happening under the hood. In the final chapters, you’ll explore performance considerations, reentrancy, atomicity, threads, and type-generic programming. You’ll code as you go with concept-reinforcing exercises and skill-honing challenges along the way.

What's inside

  • Operators and functions
  • Pointers, threading, and atomicity
  • C’s memory model
  • Hands-on exercises
