Summary

Summary

This book is suitable for students with little or no programming background. The complete book can easily be covered in a one-semester or one-quarter introductory course on problem solving. The book's main emphasis is problem solving; the C programming language is used as the vehicle for problem solving. To this end, a sufficient subset of the C language is presented in the book. However the book does not attempt to cover the complete C spectrum but stresses only the features essential to problem solving in the first course in computing. Therefore, this book is not a comprehensive C reference book but a textbook for students who want to learn problem solving using computers, structured procedural programming, and the standard C language.


Summary

New edition of a textbook intended for entry-level university courses that are modeled after the CS1 course of the Association for Computing Machinery Curriculum Recommendations. The primary objective is to teach problem solving using computers. Covers the elements of C, arithmetic calculations, modular programming, selections and repetitions, arrays and their operations, character data and string processing, and recursion. Three appendices list the C reserved words, tables of C operators, and standard C header files and library functions. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
