Quite a few good titles have been posted to the group in the past few
weeks/months. Use Google Groups interface to find them.

I don't have a list of titles handy myself, but Kernighan & Ritchie
(Second Edition) is still considered one of *the* books, and certainly
should be on your bookshelf.

Also, "best" (especially "BEST") is very difficult/impossible to define.
You may want to tell us what's your primary area of interest.

I never did quite get around to creating that page. Until now.

It now exists. It says "placeholder", which has a letter 'c' in it.

Don't waste your money on those books. I have probably a two dozen books on
C, but there is only one that I continually open:
"C: A Reference Manual," by Samuel Harbison and Guy Steele, Jr. of Tartan
Laboratories.

That one will _not_ teach you how to program in C. Therefore, it may be too
advanced. If that's the case, go buy this one:
"The C programming Language," by Brian Kernighan and Dennis Ritchie.

If it's not advanced enough, this one may help you to understand how certain
functions could work or be implemented:
"The Standard C Library", by P.J. Plauger

You shouldn't need anything else except perhaps the C standard ISO/IEC
9899:1999(E).
