The second edition of The C Programming Language was published early in 1988. At that time, the first C standard was almost complete, formalizing and codifying the precise definition of the language. There have been two revisions to the standard since then, in 1999 and 2011, that added a number of language features and cleared up a few minor issues. But for many programmers, the 1988 definition of C covers the parts of the language that they use, so it has never seemed necessary to update the book itself to track the newer standards. Thus, the digital version is intentionally identical to the print edition.

On the other hand, the computing world is very different from what it was in 1988. The Internet has gone from a network primarily for researchers at universities to a universal network linking everyone on the planet. Computers have continued to get smaller, cheaper, and faster; a typical laptop or cell phone today has more computing power than a supercomputer of 1988, yet costs so little that probably half the people in the world have one. Languages such as C++, Objective-C, Java, and JavaScript make it easier to program these systems as well; all of them borrow heavily from C
