    A question to those using Prata's book.

    I'm wondering which of 4th and 5th edition of Prata's C primer plus to buy. I heard the contents aren't much different, and the 4th would be much cheaper if I bought on ebay, but one thing I don't like with 4th edition is the paper is thick and rough, and I'd guess when I use a highlighter, it would probably penetrate to the back side of the page and make the reading difficult.
    I found the latest C++ primer plus is using glossy papers, but not sure about C primer plus. Could anyone using 5th of C primer plus let me know the paper quality..
    it sounds silly, but this is a serious question.

    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.
