    A good book on algorithms for C

    Hi !!,
    Can anyboby here suggest a good book on algorithms for C?
    I have basic knowledge of C. A friend told me about a book called
    "Algorithms Through C" from oreilly publications but some said it
    could be a bit tough and the review on oreilly mentions that the code in the book is badly written, whatever that means.
    I would be etremely thankful if anyone here could suggest good books about the topic.

    I suggest O'Reilly. I have one of their programming books and I'm satisfied with it.

    Get a copy of the art of computer programming by donald knuth. There are 3 volumes to this work. It is absolutely indispensible.
    Free the weed!! Class B to class C is not good enough!!
    And the FAQ is here :- http://faq.cprogramming.com/cgi-bin/smartfaq.cgi

    Never heard of it. C, I assume. What is meant by "art"?

    Get the standard. Get the 'sedgewick'.

    Algorithms in C
    ( or alternatively Algorithms in C++ )

    Addison Wesley

    She was so Blonde, she spent 20 minutes looking at the orange juice can because it said "Concentrate."

    When in doubt, read the FAQ.
    Then ask a smart question.
