College Book from Niranjan Udas. design, evaluation, and implementation. by Bruce J. MacLennan. Published 1983 by Holt, Rinehart, and Winston in New York.

Design is an essential topic for all compuer science students regardless of whether or not they will ever have to create a programming language. The user who understands the motivation for various language facilities will be able to use them more intelligentlu; the compiler writer to implement them more reasonably. Implementation is also important since the language designer must be aware of the costs of the facilities provided. This text treats the design and implementation of programming languages as fundamental skills that all computer scientists should possess. It illustrates concepts with representative languages from five generations of language development. Design and implementation issues surrounding Fortran, Algol-60, Pascal, Ada, Lisp, SmallTalk, and Prolog are covered in-depth as case studies to illustrate larger themes. The implementation techniques discussed in this text are seminal; they form the basis of techniques that will continue to be useful and that can be varied to achieve a wide range of goals.
Reviews:
  • Cktiell
Although it's unlikely you'll ever use the programing languages discussed in this book, it's a good book to have as it teaches you the theory and motivation of programming languages in general.
  • Reighbyra
It works perfectly. I love it. the delivery was also fast.
  • Dishadel
Even though it was a refurb copy, the book was as good as new. And the price I paid for it did all justice to the book.

Today I needed to recommend a book that would treat the ideas and concepts behind good programming. I remembered in college that I had taken a languages course, I looked on my bookshelf, and found this text. I started to re-read it, and found that the ideas and concepts that are covered in this book are still relevant and well treated for today's computing landscape. I only have the 2nd edition so it does not have a treatment of C or C++, but the ideas that it conveyes are still the most important aspect of learning about computer languages. A language you know does not help you with designing good code, however concepts of computer languages will help you no matter what language you code. Inside the cover flap reads a list of principles that are covered throughout the book in each section. Some of them are: Abstraction, Automation, Infomation hiding, Orthogonality, Portability, etc. I would recommend this book to anyone who wanted to learn how to *design* quality software from the ground up. This book will not teach you a language, this book will teach you how to design good code.

This book reads like it was written in 1990 and the author never bothered to do any further research. It makes some good points, but it should not be a first choice for a survey of the state of the art with regard to functional, OO, and logic programming.
