Programmers new to C as well as those experienced with the C language will find Learning C: Programming Graphics on the Amiga and Atari ST full of useful information on programming graphics in C on the Commodore Amiga and the Atari ST. Written for those who have experience working with the ST or Amiga, this book first explores the fundamentals of the C language, then shows how to use C to create dramatic graphics on the Amiga and ST.

The authors have supplied specific libraries of routines for the Amiga and the ST. Each of the program examples will run, without modifications, on both the Amiga and ST. The appendices include clear explanations of how to use these libraries in your own programs. You'll be able to write your own exciting graphics programs once you've mastered the fundamentals of C. And, as an extra bonus, your code will work on either the Amiga or ST.

Here is some what's included:

- Through explanations of each of the C commands needed to write graphics

- How to create three-dimensional graphics

- machine.c, a powerful graphics library for the Amiga and ST

- Clear explanations of how to translate advanced mathematics concepts into usable C language program code

- How to use C structures and arrays to write efficient programs

- Explanations of how to compile and link each program included in this book on the most popular compilers for the Amiga and ST

Learning C: Programming Graphics on the Amiga and Atari ST expects that you've programmed your Atari ST or Commodore Amiga, and are familiar with its operating system.

Written in a clear and concise style, Learning C: Programming Graphics on the Amiga and Atari ST includes all programs, fully tested and ready to type in, compile, and link. If you prefer, there are companion disks available for purchase for the Amiga and ST which include all the C source code and executable files from the book.
