Once upon a time I had a book by I believe Jeff Swann on programming in Turbo Pascal 6.0. In the back of the book was and Encyclopedia of the language. Any time I had a problem on a procedure or function I could look it up. It told the syntax, in's and out's and had an example or two of how to use it. It was a GREAT help.

Does such a animal exist for C, inparticular for AVR GCC? Would like to find a public doamin copy but would be worth some real money.

There are several commercial books for C libraries, of course. As for AVR GCC, I think because most programmers are so concerned with program space and execution time, we typically write custom algorithms that have limited functionality when compared to the real C version but suffice for the embedded application. The avr-gcc examples include something like this for printf().

| Larry,
| I like Martin Leslie's online C Programming Reference Guide at
| http://www.gator.net/~garyg/C/mi... . What I do want is access to
| this info while I'm using the computer but I don't want to be
| online during
| this time. Also, I would like to have a printed out in hardcopy, for the
| times when I don't have access to a computer.
| Martin talks about saving this stuff with Mosaic and compile them. Thats
| what I would like to do. How do I accomplish this. I'm using IE5
| and WIN98.
(...)
| Thanks,
| Mike

You don't have to be online to reach the Guide.
You can bookmark the site, and then tag it for: Make this page available offline

You can always print the hole site if you like, but it would probably be better to print them into a PDF file. (I think the site includes about 1000 pages.)
