This is the entire text from my book 'C Style: Standards and Guidelines', published by Prentice-Hall in 1991 and now in around 200 hyperlinked web pages.

It is perhaps unique as, rather than telling you what programming style you should use, it details the arguments for and against various alternatives and then lets you choose.

For a little history, if you like, you can read the original story of the book.

 

Enjoy.
