I have recently purchased a book titled
'Developing Linux Applications with GTK+ and GDK' by Eric Harlow.
This book is full of mistakes. Many of the example programs have
mistakes such as:
1) functions requiring return value with no return statement.
2) Variables used but not declared.
3) Variables declared but not used.
4) Lines of code out of sequence.
5) typing mistakes.
You can accept some errors in books but not in an educational book.
Fortunately I am an experienced C programmer and spotted the mistakes
and know how to fix them, but a novice programmer would be seriously
Anybody else read this book?
