About the book
C Programming in easy steps instructs you how to create computer programs in the C programming language. It contains separate chapters on the major features of the C language. There are complete example programs that demonstrate each aspect of C together with screenshots that illustrate the output when that program has been executed.
C Programming in easy steps begins by explaining how to download and install a free C compiler so that you can quickly begin to create your own executable programs by copying the book's examples. You need have no previous knowledge of any programming language so it's ideal for the newcomer to computer programming. Each chapter builds your knowledge of C. By the end of this book you will have gained a sound understanding of the C language and be able to write your own C programs and compile them into executable files that can be run on any compatible computer.
C Programming in easy steps has an easy-to-follow style that will appeal to anyone who wants to begin programming in C. It will appeal to programmers moving from another programming language, and to the student who is studying C programming at school or college, and to those seeking a career in computing who need a fundamental understanding of procedural programming.
