No, you wont learn programming with it. It is more like a referance book.

>>51398210
I'm not looking to learn programming - just the C language

>>51398187

absolutely. if you've been programming already for a while it'll probably join up some dots for you fill in some gaps you may not know you had etc plus its a freaking classic.

>>51398187
get away from C you java fag

>>51398210

horseshit.

>>51398261
there is more to a language than the syntax so yes, you are lookin to learn programming. Plus, whatever you know already is different from C.

Don't listen to these children, K&R is the word of god.

In all seriousness, it's a great book. I'm assuming you understand you fully understand the JVM and it's memory management model--C will just be a more hands on way of doing things that you likely already understand.

Unfortunately, I appear to not understand the English language.

just read the C faq and the standard and start following the C tag on stack overflow
