    Good C Books for Reference (Wich one(s) should I buy?)

    I well I'm a CS student, so I saved some of my money in order to buy some programming books, as I haven't much money to spare then I would like to use it the best way. My University Library already has the following famous books (so I wont buy them):

    C How to Program by Deitel and Deitel
    The C Programming Language by Schildt
    The ANSI C Programming Language by Kernighan and Richie
    Programming in C/C++ The Bible by Kris Jamsa and Lars klander

    I was looking for something good for Linux programming, and also some strong reference for deeper topics, so what would you suggest me to buy?
    Thx a lot by the patience.

    I'd suggest a forum search, you'll find this one has been asked before...
    When all else fails, read the instructions.
    If you're posting code, use code tags: [code] /* insert code here */ [/code]

    But only once. Every week.
    If I did your homework for you, then you might pass your class without learning how to write a program like this. Then you might graduate and get your degree without learning how to write a program like this. You might become a professional programmer without knowing how to write a program like this. Someday you might work on a project with me without knowing how to write a program like this. Then I would have to do you serious bodily harm. - Jack Klein

    if your looking for *nix programming, theres a pretty informative book called "Advanced Programming in the Unix Environment" or something like that. I didnt use it all that much (as with so many of my text books) but what i did read of it was pretty good.
