Advanced book but one of my "most" favorites - in my opinion all of his books are wonderful. Dave R.
I think this book is cute, but written in 1994 it is _way_ out of date in 200x. At that time, for a *nix programmer, it was a gem. I think it will continue to have some usefulness as it was written from the point of view of a very knowledgeable and competent compiler writer, so it provides unique insights. To get the in depth content of this book, I recommend would the peerless "C: A Reference Manual". Larry
Where this book stands out is its lucid explanations of "under the hood" material. What really happens when your program is loaded in? Why aren't pointers and arrays the same? (Bet you thought they were.) This book explains it all. Hollister H.
