Dennis Richie is the original creator of C and this is the book that introduced C to the world.
The CCS C compiler used the first edition of this book as the reference for the design of the
compiler. This is a short but sweet look at C with all the details of the language simply
explained. Note that the second edition of this book covers enhancements to the language made
by an ANSI standards group. Not all ANSI enhancements are included in the CCS C compiler since
some are geared toward larger computers with different resources. For example most PICs do not
have a hard disk connected and a file system. This is a great reference book for all C programmers.

The Standard C Library
This book defines all the standard C functions in good detail. Many of these functions do not apply to C on a PIC

reference manual and the C programming language book cover the essentials
