I bought the second edition awhile back and considered it one of my indispensible reference books on C at the time. I have since donated all my programming books to the local library, so I snatched up the fourth edition e-book quickly so I can once again refer to it on my iPad! A lot of books explain the C language from a very high level, but few dive deep to expose compiler trickery, myths, gotchas, and real-world use. This is a developer reference book as it so clearly states on the cover.

The new edition is updated for Visual Studio ,. NET 4. As always, I do review each and every chapter, I apply any reported errata improvements, fix any bugs, typos, or improve wording if a reader reported that something was confusing.
I also update version numbers, screen shots, and any current thinking that differs from thinking in the past. However, I have also made some significant enhancements to the 4th edition. I have rewritten the Garbage Collection chapter so the material is updated and presented in more organized fashion. The new Reflection APIs have affected other chapters too such as the delegates chapter where I talk about how to dynamically create delegate instances at runtime.
The only language feature new to C 5. This model is very similar to the model I produced years ago via my AsyncEnumerator class which has been freely available as part of my Power Threading library. OK, C has introduced another tiny language feature via Callee custom attributes and I also show how to use them in the same chapter. When the book goes to the printer, I will post the source code on the Wintellect website.
