View Full Version : Looking for a C reference (cheatsheet)

Oct 9, 2005, 01:58 PM
I'm in the process of learning C and was wondering if there were any small reference sheets available to print out. I know there are books on this but while I'm still very early into the learning process many of these books are overkill though I will undoubtedly pick up on eventually.

I'm just looking for something with the keywords, signed/unsigned variables, conversion characters (%*) and reminder about things like the '&' with basic description...etc. Basically anything helpful to a beginner. I have several post-it tabs all over my book with these but it's a hassle to flip through and keep finding them. It would be much more convenient if they were on a few sheets I could print out and reference until they are fully committed to memory.

Not exactly a small reference, but C/C++ Programmer's Reference (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0072227222/ref=pd_bbs_null_1/002-9175855-9242441) is very handy... highly recommended!

Perhaps something like this (http://www.digilife.be/quickreferences/QRC/C%20Reference%20Card%20(ANSI).pdf). It's 2 pages instead of one, but it's free to print...

Edit to add: it's one of a whole set (http://www.digilife.be/quickreferences/quickrefs.htm) covering lots of languages...

Thanks for the replies. That book is definately something I will get in the hopefully near future. That link to the pdf looks perfect. I just need something to remind me of things.

Thank you again.
