Beginning Perl (3rd Edition)

This can be a e-book for these folks who believed that we didn’t have to research Perl, and now we all know it's extra ubiquitous than ever.

Sample text

By using C, you can nearly achieve the efficiency of assembly code combined with the structure of Pascal or Modula-2. It is no wonder that C has become the universal language of programmers around the world. The fact that C can often be used in place of assembly language was a major factor in its initial success. Assembly language uses a symbolic representation of the actual binary code that the computer executes directly. Each assembly-language operation maps into a single task for the computer to perform.

The x in func1( ) has no bearing on or relationship to the x in func2( ). As explained, this is because each x is known only to the code within the block in which it is declared. The C language contains the keyword auto, which you can use to declare local variables. However, since all nonglobal variables are, by default, assumed to be auto, this keyword is virtually never used. Hence, the examples in this book will not use it. For reasons of convenience and tradition, most programmers declare all the variables used by a function immediately after the function's opening curly brace and before any other statements.

Thus, C89 is both the foundation for C99 and the basis for C++. In a book such as this Complete Reference, dividing the C language into two pieces— the C89 foundation and the C99-specific features— achieves three major benefits: •The dividing line between the C89 and the C99 versions of C is clearly delineated. When maintaining legacy code for environments in which C99-compatible compilers are not available, an understanding of where C89 ends and C99 begins is important. It is a frustrating experience to plan a solution around a feature, only to find that the feature is not supported by the compiler!
