Subject: [TUHS] First(?) C Reference Manual
Date: Sat, 13 Nov 2021 19:52:11 -0500	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

I have been looking for some time for a C Reference Manual from early 1973 (or late 1972) where Dennis comments that multiple array subscripts will eventually have Fortran-like syntax with commas separating rather than multiple sets of square brackets. That was the first C manual I had back when I first learned the language. Silly me, I discarded it when a newer one was issued, not realizing the historical significance of the earlier one.
