The first edition, published February 22, , was the first widely available book on the C programming language. In April , the second edition of the book was published, updated to cover the changes to the language resulting from the then-new ANSI C standard, particularly with the inclusion of reference material on standard libraries. The second edition of the book and as of , the most recent has since been translated into over 20 languages.
