API Design for C provides a comprehensive discussion of Application Programming Interface API development, from initial design through implementation, testing, documentation, release, versioning, maintenance, and deprecation It is the only book that teaches the strategies of C API development, including interface design, versioning, scripting, and plug in extensibilAPI Design for C provides a comprehensive discussion of Application Programming Interface API development, from initial design through implementation, testing, documentation, release, versioning, maintenance, and deprecation It is the only book that teaches the strategies of C API development, including interface design, versioning, scripting, and plug in extensibility Drawing from the author s experience on large scale, collaborative software projects, the text offers practical techniques of API design that produce robust code for the long term It presents patterns and practices that provide real value to individual developers as well as organizations.API Design for C explores often overlooked issues, both technical and non technical, contributing to successful design decisions that product high quality, robust, and long lived APIs It focuses on various API styles and patterns that will allow you to produce elegant and durable libraries A discussion on testing strategies concentrates on automated API testing techniques rather than attempting to include end user application testing techniques such as GUI testing, system testing, or manual testing Each concept is illustrated with extensive C code examples, and fully functional examples and working source code for experimentation are available online.This book will be helpful to new programmers who understand the fundamentals of C and who want to advance their design skills, as well as to senior engineers and software architects seeking to gain new expertise to complement their existing talents Three specific groups of readers are targeted practicing software engineers and architects, technical managers, and students and educators.The only book that teaches the strategies of C API development, including design, versioning, documentation, testing, scripting, and extensibility.Extensive code examples illustrate each concept, with fully functional examples and working source code for experimentation available online.Covers various API styles and patterns with a focus on practical and efficient designs for large scale long term projects.

5/10I learned almost nothing from this, maybe the inevitable consequence of spending so much of my life at this game. You just can never tell until you've been through it.A useful compendium of best practices for any novice though. Succinct, well organised and competently written. But oh how I wish for something of the quality of a Jon Bentley or a Herb Sutter.
In practice, this is more a book of good development practices, a bit like Code Complete, but more concise and slightly directed towards public API development.I didn't learn anything new, but it's a nice compilation and might be worth for beginners.
Good language specific book in API and class interface design
This is a really easy read. Nothing complicated, just good advices. Most of them things that I've been implementing, or already knew. But it's always interesting to reinforce our knowledge. I feel it's a book that all software engineers should read. The world would be a better place if they followed the advice herein.The only thing I would say is arguable is the treatment of copy-on-write (COW). The opinion expressed by this author doesn't consider the arguments given by Sutter in "More Exceptio [...]
Well written and easy to read. Beginners can learn a lot from this book.
Good resource for beginners, but I learned almost nothing.
Nothing unique, new or particularly advanced But it's nice to have all this material in one source.
Good book to check C++ related knowledge coverage, to spot a gaps.
Great first few chapters with practical advice on C++ API design; rest of the book devolved into high-level rehash of other works, a lot of it out of date.
A must read for any C++ programmer. It basically ensures that the stuff one's suppose to be aware of and know in-depth are still in the attic of the mind. It's definitely one for the shelf.
