An Introduction to the C Programming Language and Software Design (Tim Bailey)

The professional perspective, concise explanations, examples, and images in this book make learning C easy and enjoyable, despite the fact that many students of C will rightfully concede that it is not an easy language to learn.

You can't learn to program; you have to actually develop programs to do it. Because of this, each chapter in this book includes programming exercises, a summary of the chapter, and a complete program that applies the ideas from the chapter to create a simple application.

With the help of this book, you'll learn how to think through and design programs using algorithms and pseudocode; translate your ideas into functional C programs; write, compile, test, and debug your code; and use data types, arrays, pointers, strings, file operations, among other things, to build reliable programs.

There were two main goals in mind when writing this textbook. Introduce the C programming language first. C is a useful and up-to-date software tool; it is still among the most widely used programming languages, especially in fields like embedded systems. Given the prevalence of C compilers and the ease with which code can be translated to numerous platforms, C makes it possible to write incredibly powerful and efficient programs. Additionally, there is a sizable code base of C programs that have been written over the past 30 years, and there are numerous systems that will require maintenance and extension for a very long time.

The introduction of fundamental software design concepts is the second major goal. Learning how to design, develop, and debug full C programs is a C-specific skill at first glance. At another level, it is more general: to acquire the knowledge and abilities required to develop substantial and intricate software systems. This entails understanding how to break down complex issues into manageable systems of modules, using modularity and clear interfaces to create designs that are accurate, understandable, and flexible.
