If you’re like most people, the above seems like nonsense.Actually, it’s computer sense—C programming. Afterdigesting C For Dummies, 2nd Edition,you’ll understand it. C programs are fast, concise andversatile. They let you boss your computer around for a change. Soturn on your computer, get a free compiler and editor (the booktells you where), pull up a chair, and get going. You won’thave to go far (page 13) to find your first program example.You’ll do short, totally manageable, hands-on exercises tohelp you make sense of:

All 32 keywords in the C language (that’sright—just 32 words) The functions—several dozen of them Terms like printf(), scanf(), gets (), and puts () String variables, numeric variables, and constants Looping and implementation Floating-point values

In case those terms are almost as intimidating as the idea ofprogramming, be reassured that C For Dummies was written byDan Gookin, bestselling author of DOS For Dummies, the bookthat started the whole library. So instead of using expletives andgetting headaches, you’ll be using newly acquired skills andgetting occasional chuckles as you discover how to:

Design and develop programs Add comments (like post-it-notes to yourself) as you go Link code to create executable programs Debug and deploy your programs Use lint, a common tool to examine and optimize your code

A helpful, tear-out cheat sheet is a quick reference forcomparison symbols, conversion characters, mathematical doodads, Cnumeric data types, and more. C For Dummies takes themystery out of programming and gets you into it quickly andpainlessly.
