The C Programming Language (book)

The C Programming Language (also known as K&R or "the white book") is a famous computer science book which has been influential in the application and development of the C programming language. The book was written by Dennis Ritchie, who designed the language, and by Brian Kernighan.

The first edition of the book, published in 1978, discusses the original usage of C by AT&T; this "dialect" of C is sometimes referred to as K&R C. In 1988 a second edition was published which covers ANSI C. The book has since been translated into over 20 languages.

The style of formatting programs used in the book is often called "K&R style" or the "One True Brace Style".
