The main problem for newcomer with K&R C tutorial may be not even
learning style, but language version it uses. It uses so-called old C
language version - first version existed, requires special gcc option
to enable. In particular, this version permits such old style of
function definition:

int main (argc, argv)
int argc;
char ** argv;

as well as main function format:

void main();

I first was serious to try learning C programing starting with 2003 or
2004, at that time I was under windows. They gave me right this among
others (another was Introduction to C++ html book). So, I had to
improvise while reading that book, because whatever language was in use
by compiler, when I got it (I used either borland or visual studio) -
used newer, more standartized language version (I guess, at least C89,
if not C99, should be least supported by them).
