Suggest a book
Okay guys I think I've got a stupid question but well.. never mind me. Currently I'm learning C++ from the book C++ Primer Plus I'm almost done and I want to continue studying with the book The C++ Programming Language by Stroustrup himself. After I understand the C++ basics and I dare to call myself an intermediate C++ programmer I want to learn C. Now the question is whether I shall choose either C Primer Plus or The C Programming Language.
Enclosing, I have a question about the C Programming Language, the book is published in 1988 so I expect that it covers ANSI C (C89), will it be useful now that C99 is the current standard and will it be compatible with C99. And is it a good book for C starters with C++ experience?
There aren't that many differences between C89 and C99 that you really have to worry about it. Of course, a book printed in 1988 will not have the FULL C89 standard, as the standard was not complete (but very close, so any differences is probably in the obscure details).
Speaking of standards, is there much difference between the C99 draft, and actually C99 standard?
The standard costs US$30, so if the draft(which can be found for free online) is not much different, one could save a bit of money.
EDIT: The draft standards can be found here:
