View Full Version : Brief explanation of BWK's credentials

Trying to figure out a short and sweet way of listing Brian W Kernighan's credentials for my english paper.

Here is what I have (needs to be cleaned up a little)

co-author of one of the original C compilers and co-author of one of the popular C standards used prior to the American National Standards Institute adopting a formal standard
Since this is a English class and not going to be read by anyone with a lot of knowledge on the subject I can emblish a little. But at the same time I do not wish to lie outright, so if I'm wrong please say so :)

Already looked there. Too me simply saying someone has written a lot of books isn't enough for creditionals :)

Just trying to translate it into normal language.
