C Pointers

Understanding and Using C Pointers
By Reese, Richard Martin – 2013

Programmers will want to read this book. I mean youngsters who have got good at PHP and Javascript but do not know about pointers and want their code to run blazing fast without heartbleed bugs. I mean, supposing they have not discovered Rust language, which does away with worries about using uninitialized vars or going out of bounds.

This reminds me of my first senior role, and a new Eng grad who told me he had found a compiler bug. I thought to my self ‘not likely’ and picked out a pointer bug in his code.

I have not read this book yet, but it is from O’Reilly so it will be good, and I am counting on it to discuss smart pointers.
