C is the most versatile of programming languages. It has caused a number of innovations in the areas of software and Information Technology, and is the forerunner to a new programming paradigm, the OOT, the major derivative of which is the graphical user interface which has tremendously simplified the use of computers. C has led to many path-breaking developments in the field of computer science, such as vibrant social media, e-commerce, e-banking, mobile banking, cloud computing, Internet of Things, and Big Data Analytics. Learning of C, thus, is of tremendous use to every programmer. The learner only needs to follow a step-by-step process with one step at a time, so as to absorb its tenets easily—exactly the approach this book has followed.
Over the years, this book has helped thousands of aspirants in developing their career in the language. The second edition has made it compatible with the latest revisions to C Standards.
