Wouldn't it be better to use a newer study book? Should I look for
Yes, that book is over 30 years old. C itself, and Unix, were invented
together about 1970. (FreeBSD is a version of Unix; Linux is a different
version of Unix.)
That is a classic book about C, and still valuable, but no longer
complete. There were some additions to the language in 1999, and a
couple smaller changes since.
C is useful to know around Unix systems, and there's a lot of existing
software in the world written in C, but it's not used all that much for
new projects. I say this even though I've used C and Unix for a long time.
