C: A Reference Manual
Author: Samuel P Harbison
This best-selling, authoritative reference manual provides a complete description of the C language, the run-time libraries, and a style of C programming that empha_sizes correctness, portability, and maintainability.
Describing the C language more clearly and in more detail than any other book, authors Samuel P. Harbison and Guy L. Steele Jr. provide in a single manual:
- Standard C (1999) - the new revison of the C Standard supports complex and Boolean types, variable length arrays, precise floating-point programming, and new libraries for portability and internationalization.
- Standard C (1989)- the version of C used by most of today's programmers.
- Traditional C-common practice before 1990, with millions of lines of code in use every day.
- C++ compatible C-code that can be used as C or C++.
- The complete C run-time libraries for all C versions.
C: A Reference Manual is the only book that describes all the details of C-past and present. It is the single must-have reference for all C programmers and implementors.
Thoroughly revised and updated, the expanded Fifth Edition includes a complete description of the latest C Standard, ISO/IEC 9899:1999, with its powerful language extensions and new libraries.
New! Visit the Web site. www.CAReferenceManual.com contains source code for the longer examples in the book, expanded discussions on language issues, the latest ISO/IEC language corrigenda, and links to other C resources.
Documents the proper syntax and usage of the C programming languages' constructs and run-time libraries. Differences among standard C, C89, C99, and C++ are noted. Chapter topics include declarations, types, expressions, statements, string processing, I/O facilities, and mathematical functions. A useful reference for experienced programmers. The fifth edition incorporates the latest international C standard, ISO/IEC 9899:1999 (C99). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
A reference manual describing C language, run-time libraries, and a style of C programming that emphasizes portability and maintainability. Reviews language standards, C programming, and syntax notation, and covers lexical elements, declarations, types, conversions, and functions in both standard C and traditional C. This fourth edition includes ANSI/ISO descriptions updated with ISO C Amendment 1 (1994), and chapter discussions on C++ compatibility. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist: Effective Modeling in RDFS and OWL
Author: Dean Allemang
The promise of the Semantic Web to provide a universal medium to exchange data information and knowledge has been well publicized. There are many sources too for basic information on the extensions to the WWW that permit content to be expressed in natural language yet used by software agents to easily find, share and integrate information. Until now individuals engaged in creating ontologies-- formal descriptions of the concepts, terms, and relationships within a given knowledge domain-- have had no sources beyond the technical standards documents.
Semantic Web for the Working Ontologist transforms this information into the practical knowledge that programmers and subject domain experts need. Authors Allemang and Hendler begin with solutions to the basic problems, but don't stop there: they demonstrate how to develop your own solutions to problems of increasing complexity and ensure that your skills will keep pace with the continued evolution of the Semantic Web.
• Provides practical information for all programmers and subject matter experts engaged in modeling data to fit the requirements of the Semantic Web.
• De-emphasizes algorithms and proofs, focusing instead on real-world problems, creative solutions, and highly illustrative examples.
• Presents detailed, ready-to-apply "recipes" for use in many specific situations.
• Shows how to create new recipes from RDF, RDFS, and OWL constructs.
