P: n/a
Hi,
Does any one know if "Practical C Programming" is available on Internet?
I searched for it, but in vain.

Please let me know in case you know.

Thanks in advance.

It is available from amazon.com, however, unlike most O'Reilly books, I
would not recommend it.

If you mean available for legal download, only from the O'Reilly Safari
bookshelf.

I've never seen the book, but I'm curious as to why you wouldn't
recommend it. Is it written by Schildt? ;)

If you mean for free, legally, no. I don't know if you'd want it
anyway, if it's anything like "Practical C Programming." I threw a
copy of that into the garbage not long ago. I wouldn't even give it to
someone, it was so bad.
Please let me know in case you know.

Thanks in advance.

No, but:

Note that the first review is of the 3rd Edition,
the second, of the 2nd Edition. I don't know if
3rd is the latest or not.

Please excuse the typo - it was "Practical C++ Programming" that I
bought, then threw away.

There seems to be a little confusion here. The first review is for
"Practical C Programming" (3rd ed), the second is for "Practical C++
Programming" (2nd ed) by the same author. Neither fares well.

Oh, right. Sorry I missed that. Steam from my coffee clouding my
reading glasses. Yeah, that musta been it... :-)

Agreed.
