The book comprises of challenging exercises which cover all significant concepts of C, helping you become a proficient C programmer. The book is a collaborative work of Kernighan and Ritchie, the latter being the creator of C and both considered to be pioneers in computer programming. This book acted as a specification of the language for many years after its release as it introduced several features of the language, and covers the later ANSI C standard. It clearly and briefly explains C concepts such as types, operators, expressions, control flow, and functions.
While it covers the concepts, it merely explains their uses rather than what they are.

Books by Herbert Schildt. No trivia or quizzes yet. Main is main as in C, but then we see the first oddity: auto. The next two lines define a vector containing integers, and reserve enough space in there for how many entries we want.
This is an optional optimization. Next up..
How is this possible? It turns out std::vector is explicitly designed to be interoperable with raw pointer operations. It is meant to be able to be passed to C library or system calls. It stores its data in a consecutive slab of memory that can be changed at will.
The compiler and its optimizer can not look at the qsort procedure as a whole therefore. In addition, there is function call overhead. To make sure we are being fair, since qsort is using a custom comparator, and our std::sort is not, we can use:.
