This second edition of Computer Fundamentals and Programming in C revisits the topics covered in the earlier edition and provides an updated exposition of key topics that are often covered at the undergraduate level. It is a comprehensive book ideal for students of engineering and computer science, as also for those who have chosen the subject in their ancillary courses. The book is comprised of two parts. The first part discusses topics such as microprocessors and data representation and provides a concise introduction to programming languages and operating systems. The second part provides an introduction to C and delineates the schemes and conventions followed in using it as a programming language.
