Hi. To understand C better, I am working my way through The C Programming Language (a.k.a K and R). I have some questions about how to implement some of the solutions to the problems presented in the text. I have The C Answer Book, too. My questions also relate to that book's suggested implementations. There are some minor variations between my solutions and the book's, which I would like to understand better.

Is there anyone who could help me with my questions? Ideally, I would send code fragments with questions. I do not think my questions are trivial. I have given the books and my questions a fair bit of thought, so I will be to the point in asking my questions.

Any help and/or leads appreciated.

Many thanks,
Bruce

The time lag between post and response can be quite high on this group
because responses have to wait for acceptance from the moderator.
However there is a group dedicated to people such as yourself:

alt.comp.lang.learn.c-c++

It covers both C and C++ and there are a number of resident experts who
will be happy to help. As an unmoderated group responses can be quite
fast (depends who is around)

You might find these interesting to go along with the K&R:

http://www.csd.uwo.ca/~jamie/C/KR/annotations.html

http://users.powernet.co.uk/eton/kandr2/index.html

Slightly off topic, but you'll want this on your shelf sooner or
later:
C: A Reference Manual (5th Edition)
Harbison & Steele

Post your questions (and the code if necessary) and see if anyone
responds.

Howdy Francis,

Nice to see you are still around to help us.

THANKS for past help.

Respectfully,
