This doesn't at all answer your question, but I happen to have a copy of
that book (picked up for a quarter at a flea market) and I don't think
it's a particularly good text to learn C from. The example code does
things such as spuriously cast malloc and even worse, uses
gets(stdin) IIRC. I'm mostly a lurker, but I think most here would
recommend using K&R2 if you want to learn C.

The newest one is the one that has "ANSI C" "stamped" on the cover. If
you have an older one be aware that things may have changed.
