      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

    Published in the year 2009, Understanding Pointers In C is a book that provides the readers with in-depth insights into pointers in the C programming language.

    Summary Of The Book

    Understanding Pointers In C provides C programmers all the information they need about pointers in the C programming language. It can be rightly said that a C programmer without a sound understanding of pointers is like a fish who can’t swim. Pointers are actually variables that are used for storing addresses, and can also be null. Pointers are useful for expressing a number of computations, helping to produce efficient and compact code.

    To tap into their full potential, the programmer needs to have a solid grounding in the subject, which is provided in Understanding Pointers In C. Errors often crop up in code if the programmer is not aware of the usage of pointers, thereby, making it important to study this subject meticulously. There are seven chapters in this book, which include Applications of Pointers, Pointers and Data Structures, Pointers and Arrays, Pointers and Structures, Introduction to Pointers, Pointers Miscellany, and Pointers and Strings.

    Through the course of this book, Kanetkar explains a number of related concepts in an easy-to-understand manner. He delves into a number of crucial aspects such as the relationship between arrays and pointers, dynamic memory allocation, structures, and variable arguments list. He also throws light on the application of pointers at the end of the book. Kanetkar explains all the important concepts in a step-by-step manner, which helps the readers understand the concepts better. This book provides the readers with detailed information on pointers, and is suitable for students as well as practicing engineers.

    Mostly outdated stuff

    This book is mostly based on TC compiler, which is almost non existant. Concepts provided are from point of view where address used to be 16bit!

    this book gives you intense concept of pointer related with every data structure, these days you need to know dynamic programming in order to save memory n efficiency of program while working in high end software companies. Though this book lacks in complexity of program for which you can buy some other book but for pointer its d best :)

    A really nice book !

    Well pointers are a very *confusing* concepts for beginners, however YK has taken the effort to simplify it, and I should mention, he succeeded at doing that. YK was very truthful when he said that in writing this volume, his computer crashed a lot as pointers can be that 'dangerous' if not used properly ! This book is really a great reference for anybody who knows C and wants to further develop his'/her's computing skills. not to mention, that this books takes a deep dive into data structure...
