C How to Program is a comprehensive introduction to programming in C. Like other texts of the Deitels’ How to Program series, the book serves as a detailed beginner source of information for college students looking to embark on a career in coding, or instructors and software-development professionals seeking to learn how to program with C.

The Eighth Edition continues the tradition of the signature Deitel “Live Code” approach--presenting concepts in the context of full-working programs rather than incomplete snips of code. This gives students a chance to run each program as they study it and see how their learning applies to real world programming scenarios.

MyProgrammingLab® not included. Students, if MyProgrammingLab is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MyProgrammingLab should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.

MyProgrammingLab is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them better absorb course material and understand difficult concepts.

Features

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

C How to Program uses the following features to facilitate learning:

  • Deitels’ signature “Live-Code” approach allows students to run full programs as they learn key concepts.
  • A focus on performance issues relates the text to real world, as developers of performance-intensive systems often code in C or C++.
  • Unparalleled breadth and depth of programming concepts and intermediate-level topics for further study
  • Hundreds of complete, working programs
  • Comprehensive Introduction to C compatible with all major operating systems
  • The book supports both the C11 and C99 standards in early chapters as appropriate for introductory material.
  • All code has been tested and is compatible with Linux, Windows, and OSX operating systems.

UPDATED! New information has been added throughout the text to maintain relevancy of key concepts and discussions. :

  • UPDATED! Chapter 1 contains updated facts and figures about current technology trends and social networking to intrigue readers and get them excited about learning C. It also includes updated test-drivers that show students how to run a command-line C program on Linux, Windows, and OSX. Discussions of the Internet and web have been updated, and a new introduction to object technology has been added.
  • UPDATED! All coverage of object oriented programming in C++ (Chapters 15-23) now includes material from Deitels’ 9th edition of C++ How to Program, up-to-date with C11 standards.
  • UPDATED! The code-style throughout has been changed: spacing inside parentheses and brackets has been removed, and the use of commas has been reduced. Parentheses have been added to certain compound conditions for clarity.
  • UPDATED! Improved compiler support has allowed variable declarations to be moved closer to where they’re first used and defined: for-loop counter-control variables in each for loop’s initialization section.
  • UPDATED! Terminology throughout has been updated to reflect the most recent C standard to help students prepare for programming as a career.
  • UPDATED! Clear and carefully-paced pedagogy for introductory courses
  • UPDATED! Summary Bullets replace end-of-chapter terminology lists from previous editions with detailed bullet-list summaries in each section that bold key terms and include page references to their defining sources.
  • NEW and UPDATED! Examples and practice problems throughout the text have been updated and added to maintain relevancy.
  • Titled Program Exercises allow instructors to easily choose problems for each topic.
