Pointers In C

Pointers on C
by Kenneth A. Reek

This pathbreaking book provides for the first time an overview of the genesis, growth, gains, and dilemmas of women’s movements worldwide. Unlike most of the literature, which focuses on the industrialized Western world, this volume devotes greater attention to the postcolonial states of Asia, Africa, and Latin America. The book challenges the assumptions that feminism can transcend national differences and, conversely, that women’s movements are shaped and circumscribed by national levels of development. All the authors reject the notion, proposed by its detractors and champions alike, that feminism is of middle-class origins and Western inspiration. Instead they seek to locate women’s movements within the terrain from which they emerge.Virtually all the authors are from the countries or communities about which they write; the few exceptions are women who have spent lengthy periods studying and living in the region. Most are scholars, often in women’s studies, and many are closely associated with the movements they describe. Thus, these writers share a commitment to the substantive concerns as well as the collective processes of women’s movements. As a key book for the Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, this volume will be essential reading for anyone interested in the global scope and implications of feminism.

Understanding and Using C Pointers
by Richard Reese

Improve your programming through a solid understanding of C pointers and memory management. With this practical book, you’ll learn how pointers provide the mechanism to dynamically manipulate memory, enhance support for data structures, and enable access to hardware. Author Richard Reese shows you how to use pointers with arrays, strings, structures, and functions, using memory models throughout the book.

Difficult to master, pointers provide C with much flexibility and power—yet few resources are dedicated to this data type. This comprehensive book has the information you need, whether you’re a beginner or an experienced C or C++ programmer or developer.

  • Get an introduction to pointers, including the declaration of different pointer types
  • Learn about dynamic memory allocation, de-allocation, and alternative memory management techniques
  • Use techniques for passing or returning data to and from functions
  • Understand the fundamental aspects of arrays as they relate to pointers
  • Explore the basics of strings and how pointers are used to support them
  • Examine why pointers can be the source of security problems, such as buffer overflow
  • Learn several pointer techniques, such as the use of opaque pointers, bounded pointers and, the restrict keyword

Pointers in C
by Hrishikesh Dewan, Naveen Toppo

Pointers in C provides a resource for professionals and advanced students needing in-depth but hands-on coverage of pointer basics and advanced features. The goal is to help programmers in wielding the full potential of pointers.

In spite of its vast usage, understanding and proper usage of pointers remains a significant problem. This book’s aim is to first introduce the basic building blocks such as elaborate details about memory, the compilation process (parsing/preprocessing/assembler/object code generation), the runtime memory organization of an executable and virtual memory. These basic building blocks will help both beginners and advanced readers to grasp the notion of pointers very easily and clearly. The book is enriched with several illustrations, pictorial examples, and code from different contexts (Device driver code snippets, algorithm, and data structures code where pointers are used).

Pointers in C contains several quick tips which will be useful for programmers for not just learning the pointer concept but also while using other features of the C language. Chapters in the book are intuitive, and there is a strict logical flow among them and each chapter forms a basis for the next chapter. This book contains every small aspect of pointer features in the C language in their entirety.


Mastering C Pointers
by Robert J. Traister

Mastering C Pointers: Tools for Programming Power focuses on the pointer operations of the C programming language, explaining exactly what pointers are and how to master them through easy-to-understand phrasing and by presenting many simple program examples. The functions of pointers with respect to memory access and memory allocation are also discussed.

Comprised of 10 chapters, this book begins with the author’s personal reflection on his first encounters with the C programming language and its pointers. The next two chapters presents steps to learning pointers, with emphasis on the essential processes that occur (invisibly and internally) when declaring standard numeric variables in C language and how to deal with C language character arrays and C strings. The reader is then introduced to string pointers and declared pointers of numeric types; the use of C language pointers and the memory allocation functions; and C language functions. The book also explores some of the other “entities” that pointers are used to access, including structures and unions, before concluding with an examination of the source code format of C language.

This monograph is intended for both beginning and experienced C language programmers.

Introductory C
by Richard Petersen

C differs from most programming languages in its use of pointers, functions, and files. For those learning C, pointers are the greatest source of confusion. The primary aim of this book is to provide working models of how pointers are used in C. Pointers are used differently with every programming feature and Introductory C, Second Edition, emphasizes how each new programming feature relates to the use of pointers to provide a thorough understanding of the applications throughout C. Introductory C, Second Edition, offers a detailed explanation of Arrays in C over several chapters, describing strings, arrays of structures, multi-dimensional arrays, and arrays of pointers. The underlying implementation of arrays using pointersis described in detail with such features as pointers to elements, pointers to arrays, and pointers to pointers. File access methods using text and binary files are also given thorough coverage: character, line, formatted text files, and record binary files are described, and the implementation of file access functions is described in detail. This book will be of great use to programmers at all levels. Key Features * Includes three new chapters introducing C++, including coverage of classes, objects, constructors, overloading, inheritance, and derivation * Contains a floppy disk with source code from examples in the book
