A Little C Primer/Comments and Revision History
I wrote this document, not because I am an expert on this subject, but because I'm not. I don't use C often, and the combination of infrequent use and relatively obscure syntax makes them frustrating to deal with. So I threw these notes together to make sure that what I did know was in an accessible form.
This document originally contained two chapters on C++, but they were sketchy and I had little interest in the language. C++ is really not so much an enhancement of C as it is a different language based on C. For the very small software projects I tend to work on, its additional features are much more bother than they're worth. Since I couldn't maintain that material, I deleted it.
