If someone were to be interested in compilers and the C programming 
language, I would also highly recommend _C - A Reference Manual_ by 
Harbison and Steele.  This was the book that I used in my undergrad 
compiler course a long time ago, and one of the all-time most useful 
books on my bookshelf. 


Q:  If I write the code int i, j; can I assume that (&i + 1) == &j? 
A:  Only sometimes. It's not portable, because in EBCDIC, i and j 
    are not adjacent.
