From the Publisher
Writing functional, understandable programming code just got easier! Written by well-known author and columnist Don Libes, this insightful and at times humorous work takes you through good and bad codes, and helps you understand the differences between them. Through real-world examples, you're shown how to solve a variety of difficult problems you're likely to face. Hard-to-find essays have been reprinted and included. Chapters cover speeding up strcpy, threads, life with static buffers, implementing software timers, keeping track of malloc, variable-sized arrays, tcl (tool command language), and more.

a required reading in any programming class. Unfortunately
It is hard to find.
This book was an relevation, the gems in it
proved that language (C/C++/Java) has nothing to do
with beatiful ideas and the genius of programmers like
Larry Wall (past winners of OCC) and the algorithms
that make a program.
Read this book, and you will never have to join a
'C vs C++ vs Java' discussions, you will be too busy writing
beautiful program, in the tradition of Stallman, Knuth and Wall.
Programs should be beautiful like Poetry.
But that isn't all: Libes actually makes all this hardcore C stuff fun! I burst out laughing many times while reading the book, which (you may have discovered) doesn't happen often, when reading books on programming.
This book is for anyone who thinks that C-programming will one day be recognized as the artform it truly is!
