The book fills this need with a practical presentation of all important code concepts, form, structure, and syntax that a student is likely to encounter. The concepts are supported by examples taken from real-world open source software projects. The focus resding reading code rather than developing and implementing programs from scratch provides for a vastly increased breadth of coverage.

Page You may read code because you have to–to fix it, inspect it, or improve it. You may read code the way an engineer examines a machine–to discover what makes it tick.
Or you may read code because you are scavenging–looking for material to reuse. Code-reading requires its own set of skills, and the ability to determine which technique you use when is crucial. In this indispensable book, Diomidis Spinellis uses more than real-world examples to show you how to identify good and bad code: Diomiids you make a habit of reading good code, you will write better code yourself.
