>From the Preface:

... a workbook intended to be used with a C language textbook ...
The programs are sprinkled with print statements.  The primary task
is to discover what each program prints. ... The larger portion of
the book is devoted to step-by-step derivations of the puzzle
solutions.  Many of the derivations are accompanied by tips and
caveats for programming in C. ...


This book is not a self-contained C tutorial; it must be
augmented by a good C text such as Kernighan & Ritchie.
