This book aims to provide a comprehensive course in C programming. The book teaches the C programming language at tertiary level with a strong emphasis on `good' programming techniques using real examples. The book benefits from Boris Allan's extensive experience of teaching in higher education and preliminary versions have been used on in-house training courses for FORTRAN and Pascal programmers learning C. Differences between C compilers are highlighted where appropriate to assist working programmers understand their system - of particular importance to the use of the book as an independent text. Hide

In this novel approach to the language Boris Allan finds a way through Forth, by looking at how it works and how it functions. This is not a manual - Boris Allan is more concentrated with the use of forth in analysing its logical implications ad in the use of graphics than with the more mundane numerical applications.
The graphics in this book match the style and the sophistication of the BBC computer and its basic language. Boris Allan shows what can be achieved with turtle graphics - the most powerful and artistic way of programming graphics on a computer.
