    Dennis Ritchie was also known as one of authors in the classic book about C "The C Programming Language . Also known as just K&R. The first edition of the book, was published in 1978. I still find it a good book. Particular for those who are new to C and want to start with C and micro-controllers

    I finally broke down and got a copy of K&R about 2-3 months ago. Nice ex-library bound book for $20 the the big A. An excellent book, but I would never use it to teach a beginner.

    You brought a tear to my eye with that one. Stay faithful my friend.
