Understanding Programming Languages
A comprehensive look at the design elements of programming languages. It will enable the developers, managers and architects to compre programming languages using the listed design elements to decide... More > which language is the best suited to the solution being developed. It covers over 75 elements of programming languages. From imperative, functional, concurrent, domain-specific & multi-paradigm languages, type systems, continuations, currying, partial application, lambda expressions, turing completeness, virtual machine comparisons to name just a dozen of over 75 topics covered. Basic knowledge of programming is assumed and familiarity with the most common languages available will help the reader grasp the context of the topic being discussed. Makes a good casual read. And is an essential part of a software professionals vocabulary and engineering practice.
The first step to polyglot programmers, improving code quality and a refresher for those working in software engineering.< Less

Principles of Assembly Language Programming
Ships in 6-8 business days.
During the transition from the mainframe to the personal computers, the programmers faced several challenging tasks which, at that time, were not possible to solve within the context of higher-level... More > programming languages. Among them were that the input to a mainframe computer was not by using a CRT the monitor, by via a punched tape or a stack of punched cards. Another major problem was the formatting of output from compilers which could parse commands for control of line printers, but not for the control of laser printers. These tasks required the use of the assembly langue libraries, one of which, included in the Microsoft reference manual for its programming languages and used, among others, by programmers at NASA, U.S. Navy, and Armco Corporation, is described in this book.< Less
