From the preface:

'Thank you for purchasing BDS C. This software package is one programmer's personal implementation of the minicomputer language C, geared down specifically for microcomputers running the CP/M operating system. The primary design goal of BDS C was to allow C programmers to move forward at a steady, efficient pace as structured programs are developed. To this end, the compiler and linker were made fast enough to compile, link and execute programs repeatedly without wearing out the programmer's patience.

There is nothing quite so annoying as waiting for a slow language processor to crunch through its task, only to be told (after many minutes) of some trivial errors which then require the entire process to be repeated. With BDS C, such errorsusually show up within seconds after starting up the compiler...and programmers can their spend time programming instead of muttering obscenities at slow computers.'

This version of C was produced by BD Software.  In 1982, the time of this manual's production, the company was based in Brighton, Massachusetts, USA.
