"Right next to my desk in a bookshelf is my 1988 copy of Kernighan and Ritchie's second edition of The C Programming Language. I've kept this book, the urtext of C programming, because C has always been the first language of Unix and Linux, and I like to be able to read source code. I know that, over the years, C had declined in use. What I didn't know was that, old as it is, C has actually maintained more of its popularity than I had thought and that it's now once more the number-one programming language in the world.
