I'd say K&R is pretty close to a sacred religious text. Certainly K&R is 
a lot closer to a sacred text than a lot of other programming language 
books out there. The only others I can recall that even come close are 
the Lisp 1.5 manual, "Structure and Interpretation of Computer 
Programs", and the Clocksin - Mellish Prolog book.
