data abstraction is an area in which the current version of C has only limited facilities C is currently in the process of being adopted as an ANSI standard; it is likely that this process will result in further changes to C, several of which are under consideration ANSI standardization of C is scheduled for late 1985 I would have liked to base this book on the ANSI version of C, which is currently in preliminary form However, I decided against doing this because the ANSI version of C is likely to undergo many changes before it is adopted as a standard and because existing compilers not implement this version I will discuss C as it is described in The C Programming Language-Reference Manual [Ritchie 1980], which is the latest version of the C reference manual The anticipated differences between this version of C and the preliminary n< UNIX is a trademark of AT&T Bell Laboratories Xl xu Preface ANSI version are summarized in Appendix C C is a flexible programming language that gives a great deal of freedom to the programmer This freedom is the source of much expressive power and one of the main strengths of C, making it powerful, versatile and easy to use in a variety of application areas However, undisciplined use of this freedom can lead to errors Consequently, in this book I shall, without loss of generality, restrict discussion to a disciplined use of C For example, I shall discuss only a restricted version of the switch statement in which the code for the different alternatives does not overlap Although overlapping alternatives can sometimes be used to advantage, such code can be hard to read, modify and maintain, and can be a potential source of errors Likewise, I shall not rely on default initial values for variables because only a subset of variables is initialized by default; I will explicitly initialize all variables in the example programs No C compiler will check and warn of all violations of the disciplined use of C advocated in this book However, many undisciplined uses will be detected by the C program checker lint [AT&T UNIX
