Summary: Edition/Copyright: 2ND 07
Tucker and Noonan's new approach emphasizes a thorough, hands-on treatment of key issues in programming language design, providing a balanced mix of explanation and experimentation. Opening chapters present the fundamental principals of programming languages, while optional companion chapters provide implementation-based, hands-on experience that de ...show morelves even deeper. This edition also includes a greatly expanded treatment of the four major programming paradigms, incorporating a number of the most current languages such as Perl and Python. Special topics presented include event-handling, concurrency, and an all-new chapter on correctness. Overall, this edition provides both broad and deep coverage of language design principles and the major paradigms, allowing users the flexibility of choosing what topics to emphasize.
- Depth of coverage & currency: in-depth coverage of core topics includes both modern and historical example languages, including C, Ada, Perl, Java, Smalltalk, Python, Scheme, Haskell, and Prolog
- The authors' approach offers unique coverage of event-handling, concurrent programming and program correctness, with special chapters on each of these topics.
- The authors emphasize a hands-on approach for implementation-based problems and exercises and include expanded coverage of language design principles and trade-offs.
- Introduces Clite (C Lite), a subset of the language C, as a basis for illustrating the principles of language design.
