Mastering C Pointers: Tools for Programming Power. The material which this book presents on C pointers must, I repeat, MUST, be thoroughly mastered and understood before a beginning C programmer can become a serious professional.

Mastering C Pointers: Tools for Programming Power. This book will provide that mastery. If every piece of C code which I have seen had been programmed by someone who had thoroughly and completely understood how to use C pointers, then the vast majority, if not all, of the memory leaks and other memory related problems in those programs would never have seen the light of day.

In addition, these same errors can be found repeated almost line for line in his other published works ("Master C Pointers" ISBN 0126974098, "Conquering C++ Pointers" ISBN 0126974209).

This book really teaches the novice C programmer pointers. It sparked my interest in pointers and has helped me to understand pointers. I use this book for reference all the time.

If you don't fully understand C pointers and how they are used, you're not getting the most out of C programming. This book features complete coverage on using and controlling C language pointers to make C applications more powerful and expressive. This new edition is completely updated and revised to reflect the changes that have been brought about with the full adoption of ANSI C. All discussions and program examples have been updated, and reading materials necessary for any modern ANSI C programmer have also been added.Includes one 3 1/2" disk containing all of the working programs and modules found in the book.System Requirements: 286 or higher IBM PC or compatible. * Includes three entirely new chapters and many new or revised programs covering the latest techniques and advances in C* Provides a 3.5" disk containing all of the working programs and modules found within the text* Explains pointers in a friendly, easy-to-follow style to allow for quick implentation of new techniques* Serves as a useful tool to both beginning and intermediate programmers for mastering pointers* Includes numerous examples to provide continued reinforcement of techniques

Brian Kernighan stated that this is "the worst C book ever written," that "every single example is wrong," and that the advices it gives are "misleading." So... avoid at all cost!

Great update to the original gold standard book.

The writing style talks down to the reader.

The book focuses on the MS/DOS architecture. Why isn't it titled as such?

I stopped reading after the author commented that many programmers are afraid to use functions that return pointers. He then went on to give an example of how to use them. It was wrong!
Reference page 111 of the SECOND EDITION. The "combine()" function returns a pointer to a local variable which is out of scope when it is dereferenced.

I would have returned the book but unfortunately it came with a disk which I had prematurely ripped out!

I doubt ant AP books will be finding a space on my bookshelf.

The material which this book presents on C pointers must, I repeat, MUST, be thoroughly mastered and understood before a beginning C programmer can become a serious professional.

If every piece of C code which I have seen had been programmed by someone who had thoroughly and completely understood how to use C pointers, then the vast majority, if not all, of the memory leaks and other memory related problems in those programs would never have seen the light of day. Particularly useful is the discussion about uninitialized versus initialized pointers, pointer indirection, and addresses (constant pointers). The book is best summed up by a single sentence on page 77: "Always know where and to what your pointers point." Although this book lacks the glitz and polish of other comparable books on C, it is clearly a must read. As a C programming professional, I highly recommend this book.

Sure it's not a product of the current decade...but invaluable on your programming bookshelf.

Sure there's some errors...but the writer's sharp, to the point, and if you can't take it from there, you don't deserve to call yourself a programmer!
