Introducing Computer Programming Date: Unknown Introducing Computer Programming

"A machine and language-independent textbook for beginners"
From inside cover:
The use of computers for data processing has revolutionised procedures and practice in offices in commerce, industry and public service. Computers are being used for more sophisticated and complex applications every day. The basic principles of computers and of computer programming remain the same even though they are being hidden in the multiplicity of complicated machinery and the welter of jargon that results from rapid and important technical advances.
This book explains these basic principles so that those interested in data processing or wishing to take up a career in programming can understand them before attempting to learn the programming languages involved in writing programs.

This book is a machine-specific introduction to microcomputers based on the VIC-20, designed to supplement the booklet provided with the machine. It offers a wealth of intresting programs can be supplied separately on tape or disk, or entered by the reader.

After a comprehensive study of BASIC and VIC-20 structure, the reader is introduced to machine code programming using the VICMON assembler. A unique feature is the quality and quantity  of programs contained  in the book, which are used to illustrate  classic problems arising in programming, and show how solutions can emerge quite naturally. Several of the longer programs are commercial in their own right. These include MINISYN, setting up the VIC as a two-octave keyboard instrument wirg sustain and colour display: PONTOON, an excellent card game used to illustrate  shuffle routines, card displays and program logic; and STARSHIP, as classic star trek game, which will be particularly popular and appealing. There are also innumerable tables and diagrams.

Hi-resolution graphics in BASIC and Machines Code and explained in detail. Routines for saving a Hi-resolution screen to disk or tape are given, together with a BASIC program which will output a Hi-resolution screen to the VIC-1515 printer.

Year of Publication: 1953. Editor B. V. Bowden. Hardback 414 pages with black and white photographs.     
Publisher Pitman Publishing  London, UK

B V Bowden was born, Chesterfield, Derbyshire, he attended Hasland Junior School as a child and graduated in natural sciences from Emmanuel College, Cambridge (1931), taking his Ph.D. in nuclear physics. From 1934-1935 he was sponsored by ICI to undertake research at the University of Amsterdam. After a period in teaching, in 1940 he was conscripted to the Telecommunications Research Establishment to work on radar. From 1943, he continued his work at the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, establishing himself as an able and effective administrator. From the end of World War II to 1953 he held a series of jobs, including selling early computers manufactured by Ferranti. His prescient forecasts of the impact that the technology would have on daily life were published in this 1953 book Faster than Thought.


In this book, B. V. Bowden is the first person to reintroduce to the public imagination Ada Lovelace's significant contribution to the development of computing. This was 101 years after her death.

A Computer Combining Analogue and Digital Principles to Investigate Network Functions in the Complex Plane (1956) Date: 1956 A Computer Combining Analogue and Digital Principles to Investigate Network Functions in the Complex Plane (1956)

The original copy of P. F. Blackman's 1956 thesis, submitted for the Degree of Ph.D. in Engineering of London University.

This bound book is hand-typed, with hand-drawn diagrams, and black-and-white photographs pasted in. A copy of the thesis summary is provided below:

"Certain important aspects of closed-loop system and network analysis are closely related to complex variable mathematics. Graphical interpretation of such analysis is frequently employed owing to the difficulty of exact analytic work. In particular the 'p-plane' or 'root-locus' method is essentially simple, and affords considerable insight into the problem, but becomes tedious in practice for complicated systems, and several instruments have been devised to reduce the labour.

"It seemd to the author that the application of p-plane principles could be considerably extended if certain operations beyond the scope of existing instruments, particularly manipulation of ept, and summation of real and imaginary components of vector products, could be achieved. These facilities would enable more advanced types of problems to be handled, such as systems containing a pure delay, and transient response by contour integration, and would permit investigation of problems not previously considered.

"This Thesis gives proposals for a Computor to provide these additional facilities. In principle the proposals are that the techniques should be as simple as possible compatible with accuracy to engineering requirements, while facilities provided should be just adequate to eliminate excessive labour from investigations. This leads to a suggested combination of analogue and digital principles.

"An experimental Computor developed from these proposals is described. Vectors are represented by AC voltages, final results being presented as counts on Dekatrons. The Computor is largely relay controlled, and accuracy is of the order 1%-2%.

"The thesis contains 3 sections:-

"Section 1. Outlines the p-plane method, and gives proposals for the Computor. The design of a proposed resistance network analogue of the complex plane is dicussed.

"Section 2. Describes the experimental Computor, and the essential points of interest in the analogue to digital conversion processes. The operation of individual units is outlined, more detailed information being given in an appendix.

"Section 3. Illustrates the varied type of problem that can be handled on the Computor, including some exaples involving time-varying zeros. Alternative applications for the Computor, and modifications resulting from operating experience are discussed."

This Amazon review is from: Planning a Computer System: Project Stretch (Hardcover)
Werner Buchholz was a Systems Consultant on the IBM Research and Engineering Corporate Staff and manager of engineering planning during Project Stretch. This 1962 book explains the functional characteristics of large high-speed digital computer. The electronic computer improved scientific research by reducing costs and times. The Stretch computer was planned with the involvement of users and designers, this book records the design effor for the instruction set and related functional characteristics (`Preface'). The IBM 7030 was the latest in advanced design. This book does not cover the programming techniques used in the compiling and supervisory programs for this system.

Project Stretch started in 1954 to use the experience gained from early computers (Chapter 1). A computer built of solid-state components (transistors and diodes) would have higher reliability, lower power consumption, smaller size, lower cost (automatic assembly), and greater speed. They wanted a machine that was a hundred times faster than the 704 (p.2). This required components that were possible but did not yet exist. The Atomic Energy Commission gave a contract. Automatic checking facilities would detect and correct errors. The best features of existing computers would be used. A high-speed parallel arithmetic unit would execute floating-point arithmetic (p.3). Main memory would be 8,192 words (65,536 bytes). A unit provided simultaneous operation of input-output, storage, and data-transmission devices. Magnetic disk units with a capacity of one million words (8 million bytes) were used for external storage (p.4).

Chapter 2 explains the Architectural Philosophy, to meet the needs of the user. The engineering design should be economical and feasible. Some real-time tasks needed very high performance, others were too large to use existing computers. A general-purpose computer is needed for scientific processing, business data processing, and large information processing needs (p.6). A fresh design permits many system improvements. Efficiency required making programming easier by using a compiler (p.8). A rich instruction set was used to offset memory limitations (p.10). Multiprogramming would take advantage of a more powerful machine. Concurrent operation of the computer with input-output operations increases speed (p.11). The paragraphs on Multiprogramming foretells the future (p.13).

Chapter 3 provides a System Summary. Chapter 5 explains why binary numbers were used (more economical than decimal). The character set allows 120 characters with lower-case letters (Chapter 6). The set of instructions is the most distinguishing characteristic of a computer (Chapter 9). The operation of a computer depends on instruction sequencing (Chapter 10). Chapter 12 discusses Input-Output Control design. The 7030 is capable of working on multiple instructions (Chapter 13). Multiprogramming allows concurrent execution of programs to improve performance. The Central Processing Unit was designed for this (Chapter 14). There are pictures of circuit cards (p.223) and the main frame (p.227). The Exchange controls the flow of information between internal memory and external storage (Chapter 16). Chapter 17 discusses non-arithmetical systems such as information retrieval, language translation, etc. [The example on page 270 assumes the values are in descending order.]

The manual describes LISP, a formal mathematical language. LISP differs from most programming languages in three important ways. The first way is in the nature of the data.

The LISP language is designed primarily for symbolic data processing used for symbolic calculations in differential and integral calculus, electrical circuit theory, mathematical logic, game playing, and other fields of artificial intelligence.The manual describes LISP, a formal mathematical language. LISP differs from most programming languages in three important ways. The first way is in the nature of the data. In the LISP language, all data are in the form of symbolic expressions usually referred to as S-expressions, of indefinite length, and which have a branching tree-type of structure, so that significant subexpressions can be readily isolated. In the LISP system, the bulk of the available memory is used for storing S-expressions in the form of list structures. The second distinction is that the LISP language is the source language itself which specifies in what way the S-expressions are to be processed. Third, LISP can interpret and execute programs written in the form of S-expressions. Thus, like machine language, and unlike most other high level languages, it can be used to generate programs for further executions.

KDF9 ALGOL Programming (1000166) Date: 1963 KDF9 ALGOL Programming (1000166)

KDF9 was an early British computer designed and built by English Electric, later English Electric Leo Marconi, EELM, later still incorporated into ICL. It first came into service in 1964 and was still in use in 1980 in at least one installation.

Author's Introduction
ALGOL 60 is a programming language for describing numerical processes
and has the unique advantage of international recognition as a common
language. ALGOL »s inherent merits are the bases of its widening acceptance
for both scientific and engineering applications. The power of its state-
ments often surprises newcomers. Its conciseness avoids much of the tedium
in other forms of programming, simplifies the programming of complex
problems 9 and makes it an acceptable medium for solving the occasional
problem. The use of conventional symbols of mathematics and the borrowing
of ordinary English words to form ALGOL symbols helps to make an ALGOL
program easy to read and understand. The ALGOL identifiers are much more
easily recognised and distinguished by the human eye than the numerical
storage representation of computer codes. These advantages » by making
programming easier, also enable a program to be written in a shorter time
and result in fewer mistakes.

Of particular value are the ALGOL programs and. procedures published
throughout the world, which are immediately available to the user of the
language. By their means he has access to the work of recognised experts
in the field of numerical analysis and to a wider variety of computer
programs and techniques than can be obtained by using one machine code
only.

Amazon Review:
This is a very interesting book for anyone who is involved in today's world of IT but has been around to remember the days before PC's and Microsoft - back when computers were big mysterious devices most of us never saw and certainly didn't work with. The author begins the book with a discussion of just what is an 'automatic computer', what it can do, and how it can be of use to a company.

The computing industry was so small and limited at the time of this book's writing that a huge amount of the computer industry can be well-covered by it. It is hard to describe this book but it deals with everything from application to hardware to programming. It gives detailed specs for the various computers available at the time, right down to the address and phone number of the vendor. It tells whether each can be bought or leased, the physical specs of size and weight, the spare parts list, power requirements, and the amount of time it takes to get it in place and installed. The book covers operating systems, data storage, input and output devices. It tells how to introduce a computer into your company and to deal with the human fallout, how to shift people around in their jobs and keep their support. There are some photographs of vintage equipment and work areas which are really neat too.

Programming Real-Time Computer Systems Date: 1965 Programming Real-Time Computer Systems

Programming Real-Time Computer Systems, by James Martin,
1965; 386 pages.
Publisher: Prentice-Hall International,

REVIEW:
Within what we all know to be a very rapidly expanding
industry, one aspect of computer usage—Real Time—is
almost exploding. Quite apart from the airline, bank and
communications systems which are so time-sensitive in their
normal operation, enlightened managements are realizing
that, to use computers to their maximum efficiency as management
tools, demand-processing is an essential and quick
responses really do matter. Senior executives have grown
tired of being presented with wads of paper which they never
have time to read, and now realize that with Real-Time systems
"management by exception" really can be accomplished.
Mr. Martin's book will no doubt stimulate interest in and
argument about many aspects of Real-Time. Whilst giving a
good basic account of the philosophy of Real-Time programming,
it has the drawback common to all textbooks which deal
with a rapidly advancing technology—it was out-of-date
almost before it reached the printers.

Apart from a glaring set of printer's errors in Table 1 of
Chapter 7, Mr. Martin's book is well set out. It should
provide the novice in this field with a good semi-historical
account of the development of programming methods and a
background to Real-Time implementation as a whole.
Provided that the reader is aware of the existence of other
programming philosophies and methods, the sections on
programming aids, and system implementation, in themselves,
make the book a worthwhile acquisition.

Leon Bagrit was generally recognised as being extraordinarily prescient in his thinking.  For instance, in this book 'The Age of Automation' he predicted:
 
‘It is now possible to envisage personal computers, small enough to be taken around in one’s car, or even one’s pocket.  They could be plugged into a national computer grid, to provide individual enquirers with almost unlimited information.’
 
‘Perhaps the most far-reaching use of the new generation of computers will be in the retention and communication of information of all sorts within a national, possibly a world-wide, information system.
 
‘In many industrial and commercial applications we are moving steadily away from large, centralized computers towards much simpler decentralized units, systems of small, cheap, special-purpose units, rather like building bricks.
 
‘Car drivers could be told immediately about traffic hold-ups and road works and given alternative routes….’

US Naval Research Laboratory - Five-Figure Table of the Functions 1/(1- Tan θ) and 1/(1 - Cot θ) for the Range -90° (1') 90° Date: 8th December US Naval Research Laboratory - Five-Figure Table of the Functions 1/(1- Tan θ) and 1/(1 - Cot θ) for the Range -90° (1') 90°

This book contains mathematical tables 'to aid data reduction for extensive application of a method to determine Seebeck coefficients of materials.  It was published in 1965 by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory.

The Seebeck coefficient (also known as thermopower, thermoelectric power, and thermoelectric sensitivity) of a material is a measure of the magnitude of an induced thermoelectric voltage in response to a temperature difference across that material.  The use of materials with a high Seebeck coefficient is one of many important factors for the efficient behaviour of thermoelectric generators and thermoelectric coolers.  These devices were presumably of enough interest to the U.S. Navy to make pursuing a mathematical shortcut, such as these tables, worthwhile.

The computing interest of the document can be seen from this passage.

'COMPUTATION AND ACCURACY

The table was computed on an IBM 1620 computer, using the library sine-cosine subroutine.  A word length of thirteen decimal digits was used, and a corrected value of the argument was inserted at every degree of the computation.  The results were then rounded ot the five figures given.  The maximum error in the last significant figure of any value of the table is (1 + δ)/2, where δ is established to be less than 10-4.

The method used to print the table minimised the possibility of transcribing errors.  Punched card computer results were printed by machine (IBM 407) and then reproduced photographically.'

Some notes on Utility Computing by Ivan I. Ivanov:

Utility Computing is not a new concept. It involves organizing and providing a wide range of computing-related services as public utilities. Much like water, gas, electricity and telecommunications, the concept of computing as public utility was announced in 1955. Utility Computing remained a concept for near 50 years. Now some models and forms of Utility Computing are emerging such as storage and server virtualization, grid computing, and automated provisioning. Recent trends in Utility Computing as a complex technology involve business procedures that could profoundly transform the nature of companies’ IT services, organizational IT strategies and technology infrastructure, and business models. In the ultimate Utility Computing models, organizations will be able to acquire as much IT services as they need, whenever and wherever they need them. Based on networked businesses and new secure online applications, Utility Computing would facilitate “agility-integration” of IT resources and services within and between virtual companies. With the application of Utility Computing there could be concealment of the complexity of IT, reduction of operational expenses, and converting of IT costs to variable ‘on-demand’ services. How far should technology, business and society go to adopt Utility Computing forms, modes and models?

ASIN: B0016N4HMC

Computer Basics is the final culmination of a comprehensive course originally prepared for the US Navy at a cost of over $250,000 (quite a sum in the 60s). The course was designed to train naval electronics technicians. Written to be easily understood, and with a special chapter by G Oliver for the English reader, it assumes no prior knowledge of computer systems, though it does require some background in basic electronics theory and a working knowledge of trigonometry and algebra. A real slice of technological history.

Programming the IBM System 360 Date: April 1967 Programming the IBM System 360

Programming the IBM System 360 by the staff of CUC

As a result of the specifications developed at the FAA NAFEC, FAA contracted with IBM for 9020 computer systems (actually tri-plex IBM System/360, Model 50s) for the ATC application.  IBM then contracted with CUC to program the System/360, including the JOVIAL compiler and all of the supporting software (but not the application software.) Ascher Opler directed this effort.

Early 1964: IBM contracted with CUC to use the software being developed for the System/360 to develop a program to keep track of  the election results, 1964 being a presidential year. This system was used by CBS TV to report these results on election evening. Based on this experience CUC staff members wrote this book “Programming the IBM System/360” which was published by John Wiley and Sons in 1966.

The SNOBOL4 Programming Language Date: 1968 The SNOBOL4 Programming Language

by Ralph E. Griswold 1968
Paperback 220 pages

SNOBOL (String Oriented Symbolic Language) is a series of computer programming languages developed between 1962 and 1967 at AT&T Bell Laboratories by David J. Farber, Ralph E. Griswold and Ivan P. Polonsky, culminating in SNOBOL4. It was one of a number of text-string-oriented languages developed during the 1950s and 1960s; others included COMIT and TRAC.

SNOBOL4 stands apart from most programming languages by having patterns as a first-class data type (i.e. a data type whose values can be manipulated in all ways permitted to any other data type in the programming language) and by providing operators for pattern concatenation and alternation. Strings generated during execution can be treated as programs and executed.

SNOBOL4 was quite widely taught in larger US universities in the late 1960s and early 1970s and was widely used in the 1970s and 1980s as a text manipulation language in the humanities.

From the preface:

'This is the first of a four-part series of lectures devoted to the stored-program or general-purpose digital computer.  The topic is one of several presented jointly by the Science Museum and Industry, and directed primarily at sixth-formers. 

The series is not concerned either with historical development or with social implications of the computer.  Rather it is dedicated to a better understanding of the contemporary computer, its potentialities and limitations, through knowledge of what it does and how it does this.  The lid is taken off the 'black box', not just the electronics, but the whole computer system comprising hardware, software, programs, and the user himself (the 'liveware'?).  No prior acquaintance with comptuers is assumed.'

Fundamentals of COBOL Date: 1971 Fundamentals of COBOL

Following numerous requests both by members and non-members it was decided that the National Computing Centre Limited should issue this essential and widely-used, high level language manual in the United Kingdom. This would not have been possible, r.cwever, without the gratefully accepted assistance of the UNVAC Division of Sperry Rand Corporation, who hold the copyright of COBOL (Common Business Oriented Language) and of the "Jnited States Navy Programming Languages Group.

"COBOL" provides the programmer with a machine-independent programming language and ignores the machine-dependent features which can restrict the usefulness of a proaram to one particular type of machine. Use of this manual should therefore enable -r.e programmer to produce a program which can be successfully applied to any make of machine and avoids the laborious task of program rewrites and the attendant costs involved. This publication provides the essentials of COBOL in a standard manual which has been widely used throughout the United States as an instructional handbook. COBOL brings one close to having computer language tailor-made to one's own needs and it enables identification of the many program elements to be made in

rlish and in a readily-understandable form. As discussions in the manual are oriented towards the highest level - level two the fullest implementation can be achieved.

Essentially the manual follows the structure of the COBOL la as defined by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI! md describes the nucleus, sequential access, segmentation and library modules as applied to tape, card and printed files. Also included are sections on table handling, sorting, mass storage, random access, and a useful glossary.

In addition to this manual, tr.e Centre also has available a number of valuable support programs. These programs have been prepared b the United States Navy Programming Lanauages Group and include compiler auditing routines, preprocessing options and a program flowcharter.

The Algorithm Writer's Guide Date: 1972 The Algorithm Writer's Guide

This book on algorithms was published in 1972.  It provides insight into the use of algorithms in the early 1970s computer market, when computers were still largely scientific devices used only by experts, but were also just beginning to be used as everyday work devices.

From the preface:

'Until now, writings on algorithms have been either for the specialist, who wants to know the latest research, or for the beginner, who needs to understand how algorithms work and what use they can be to him.

This book fills the gao.  Its subject is how to write algorithms.  It ranges widely over many forms and techniques, always with the aim in mind of providing the designer of algorithms with the knowledge he needs.

It is illustrated with many examples, very few of which have ever been used before in any publication on algorithms.  Several of the methods discussed have been developed recently in the course of consultancy work and are published here for the first time.'

OS6 An Operating System for a small Computer Date: May 1972 OS6 An Operating System for a small Computer

This is a description of a simple operating system, which runs in a virtual machine (implemented on a real machine by an interpreter). OS6 copes with only one user at a time, and is not a multi-programming system: many major problems associated with large operating systems have therefore been avoided or considerably simplified. It nevertheless has several features of interest, including the fact that it is written almost entirely in the high-level language BCPL. The most important single feature, however, is the hierarchical nature of its control structure, which avoids the need for a special job-control language

Computerguide 9: Production Control Date: 1973 Computerguide 9: Production Control

A survey of the use of computers for production control in the UK Manufacturing Industries.

The book, which is aimed at production and DP management, highlights the main problem areas of developing, implementing and operating computer-aided, production control systems and serves as a guide to existing and potential users of such systems. In addition it examines criteria such as reductions in stock, reductions in queueing times, to establish whether or not relationships exist between those companies who have achieved some measurable benefits in these areas and their method of approach in applying computer systems to production control.

This practical manual on the production of educationally sound visual aids is just what the working teacher or instructor needs. It tells with simple step-by-step procedures, how to make the most of whatever equipment a school possesses or intends to acquire. It shows how to organise the students themselves into using cameras creatively. It compares the possibilities and, even more important, the limitations of different types of equipment and the ways they interlink for visual aids production. Assuming that the reader believes in the use of visual aids, but has little experience, the first section of the book introduces all the equipment for making and showing the aids. It describes and inter-relates projectors of all kinds, copiers, enlargers, duplicators and cameras. The second major section deals with the making and using of software. It analyses the teaching task, the preparation of artwork and the copying of all types of originals by every available practical method.
 
It explains how to photograph educational subjects using still and cine cameras and advises on the all-important final presentation. The last section shows the teacher how to organise his students, whether adults or children, to use photography as easily and universally as a pencil or pen, and without ruinous expense. It relates case histories, suggests layouts for working areas, and the most worthwhile equipment for specific needs. This book will provide an excellent starting point for the student teacher, practising lecturer, instructor, or visual aids technician needing guidance in actually getting down to work. It cuts through a mass of optimistic sales literature and complex technical data. It suggests other specialist sources of information, suppliers and courses. Extensive use of diagrams helps to clarify the many step-by-step procedures

Shipping Weight: 2.6 pounds

Amazon Review:
As Knuth himself says, it is impossible for any one person to keep up with all the research in computer science, but these 3 volumes do a remarkably good job of distilling the most important results and explaining them with mathematical rigor.

Each volume contains 2 chapters. Ch. 1, Basic Concepts: mathematical foundations and a description of MIX, a hypothetical machine (now available in software emulations). Ch. 2, Information Structures: lists, trees, memory allocation, garbage collection. Ch. 3, Random Numbers: how to produce series of "random" numbers and test their statistical properties. Ch. 4, Arithmetic: algorithms for integer and floating-point arithmetic. Ch. 5, Sorting: both in memory and on disks or tapes. Ch. 6, Searching: sequential, binary, hashing.

Despite the detailed coverage of the topics, which often involves esoteric mathematical notation, the author's lively style makes the algorithms and the main theoretical results relatively easy to grasp. If all you care about is getting a program to run, buy another book; but if you really want to understand how and why software works, there's nothing quite like this.

This book is an essential read for anyone who really wants to understand the foundations of modern computer science and software engineering. The core concepts are still as relevant now as they were when it was first published, and it provides an invaluable baseline against which to measure how far the state of the art has progressed.

This book introduced the key concepts of both structured programming and object-oriented programming nearly 30 years ago. Essays by Dahl, Dijkstra, and Hoare.

This promotional book, produced by IBM in 1974, introduces the subject of computing for beginners.

From the preface:

'In this little book, we try to remove some of the noise that may block understanding of the digital computer and its use.  The computer is based on simple concepts, so we have tried to talk about it simply.  We briefly describe how electronic digital computers work, where they come from, and what they are good for.  If we have succeeded in any small degree to clear a path to understanding the computer, we will have made at least part of today a little less confusing and at least part of tomorrow a little easier to see.'

Review from Amazon:
"Full of numerous case studies that give insight into the kind of detailed process sleuthing that process capability studies are all about ... it should be a part of every serious quality practitioner's library."

--Bert Gunter in Quality Progress Magazine* Want to design fail-safe methods for finding and solving problems in complex processes? Discover new ways to coax answers from complicated data? Uncover hidden value in perplexing findings? If you want the most sophisticated and insightful approach to process sleuthing and process capability available, you've come to the right place. Packed with case studies drawn from real industrial processes, Process Quality Control demonstrates how to collect, crunch, and analyze data, step by step. Along the way, it gives you examples of successful, real-world applications used to solve tough questions. This book can help you: Learn time-tested troubleshooting methodologies. Discover better ways to gather, interpret and analyze data. Correctly interpret findings with time-ordered data. Resolve difficult, puzzling, or conflicting results with proven methods. Gain new insight in the analysis of attributes and variables data. Employ newer methods of analysis to maximize the information from your data. Draw problem-solving solutions from the identification of outliers in data. Apply graphical analysis to experimental designs. For anyone charged with discovering problems in processes, or suggesting improvements, there could be no more worthwhile--or inspiring--reading than Ellis Ott's, Edward G. Schilling's, and Dean V. Neubauer's Process Quality Control.

This new edition of the definitive Pascal reference updates the text with the most recent revisions of the ISO Pascal standard, performed by Working Group 2 of the ISO community, since the standard was formally ap- proved in 1983. This reversion of the ISO standard resolved differences between it and the American (ANSI) standard, and these as well as other changes are subsequently reflected in this new edition. It should be noted that in 1984 the third edition of this book was modified with respect to the standard while retaining the readability and elegance which originally set it apart from the standard. This book consists of two parts: The User Manual, and the Revised Report. The User Manual is directed to those who have some familiarity with computer programming, and who wish to get acquainted with the language Pascal. The style of the User Manual is that of a tutorial, and many examples are included to demonstrate the various features of Pascal. Summarizing tables and syntax specifications are among the Appendices. The Report serves as the ultimate, concise reference for both programmers and implementors. It describes Standard Pascal which constitutes a common base between various implementations of the language.

Quotation from David Griffiths:
"I believe we had the first PDP11 in Central Africa (Zambia to be exact) where it formed part of a remote control system by Brown Boveri, one of the forerunners of ABB.  In 1975 I spent 6 weeks in Switzerland on a training course on the hardware and software (the location in Zambia being too remote to rely on outside help in emergency).  The system entered full service in 1976."

Amazon review:
For programming enthusiasts, this work is a gold mine. It describes the all-important techniques for successful programming. The following proverbs are described generously
throughout the book:
o Don't panic
o Problem definition is important
o Document early and continuously
o Plan and think first-code later
o Proceed top/down
o Code logically
o Use PERFORM and CALL verbs
o Comment effectively and use mnemonic words
o Get the syntax correct
o Plan for customizations
o Desk check your work
o Have someone else read your work
o Don't be afraid to start over or to make a major customization
or improvement

Model programs depict the IDENTIFICATION DIVISION, ENVIRONMENT DIVISION, DATA DIVISION, FILE SECTIONS, WORKING-STORAGE SECTIONS , REPORT SECTIONS AND PROCEDURE SECTIONS

The author shows how to isolate key program messages in the data division and the wisdom of avoiding non-standard COBOL features.

An example of top/down programming follows:

describe input files
if either input file is missing or is labelled incorrectly
then let the operating system generate an error message
else if either input file is empty
then write appropriate message to system console
else prepare for payroll and report generation
generate payroll and report
clean up after generation
end

The author asks that programmers write simple code that is easy to read, interpret and re-create if the need arises. In addition. it is important to avoid nonstandard features.
This book has a wealth of programming standards information which
will prove invaluable in the field. The book is well worth the money.

The VAX-11 was a family of minicomputers developed and manufactured by
Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC) using processors implementing the VAX instruction set architecture (ISA). The VAX-11/780 was the first VAX computer.

The VAX-11/780, code-named "Star", was introduced on 25 October 1977 at DEC's Annual Meeting of Shareholders.[1] It was the first computer to implement the VAX architecture. The VAX-11/780 central processing unit (CPU) was built from transistor-transistor logic (TTL) devices and had a 200 ns cycle time (5 MHz) and a 2 kB cache. Memory and I/O were accessed via the Synchronous Backplane Interconnect (SBI).

BASIC: An Introduction to Computer Programming Date: 1978 BASIC: An Introduction to Computer Programming

This book is intended for an audience with no prior programming experience. A mathematics background of elementary algebra is sufficient for most of the material. Those sections involving more advanced topics in mathematics, such as the trigonometric functions, may be omitted with no loss of continuity. During the past three years the material has been tested successfully in a one-semester course for nonscience majors. It has also been used, with equal success, in both a one-quarter course and a one-semester course for mathematics and science majors.

We wrote this book with two principal goals in mind. First, we felt it important to present the elements of BASIC so that meaningful computer programs could be written at the earliest possible time. We adhere to the notion that one learns by doing. As a result, problem solving is emphasized from the beginning, and the various aspects of the BASIC language are introduced only as needed. Our second goal was to write a book that would serve as a general introduction to computer programming, not just to a programming language. Simply describing a variety of computer applications and ways to go about writing BASIC programs for these applications does not constitute an introduction to programming. What is required is a consideration of the entire programming process. The approach we have taken toward this objective is to introduce programming principles only as they can be understood and appreciated in the context of the applications being considered. For example, a beginner can easily appreciate the necessity of choosing variable names and determining how they are related. Hence, this step is introduced very early, even though it will later be found that this is one of the last steps normally taken by a programmer. On the other hand, the value of modularization is not so easily grasped in the context of the straightforward programming problems first encountered. As natural as modularization may appear to an experienced programmer, a beginner must "see" its usefulness before being convinced of its value. Therefore, this programming principle is not introduced until much later in the book.

Throughout the text we have attempted to conform to the most common BASIC usage. BASIC is not a static language. It seems that each new BASIC implementation contains what the designers consider to be "improvements." Although the many forms that BASIC assumes on different systems may please Proteus, they do nothing for the poor programmer. To help resolve this dilemma, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) prepared a document, dated December 1, 1976, entitled "Proposed American National Standard for Minimal BASIC." In all but two instances, which are clearly identified, our presentation of minimal BASIC conforms to the ANSI standard.

Amazon Reviews:
"Ages ago my instructor at the local university computing center gave me this book. After completing all etudes
I was accepted as an apprentice programmer at age fourteen. This is an exceptional book! It teaches you to think like a programmer. Unfortunately it has been out of print for more than a decade."

"This is one of the most wonderful books on computer programming.

To use the musical metaphor presented in the book, the reader will be challenged to compose pieces ranging from simple melodies to full blown symphonies, in styles ranging from classical to modern hip-hop. While many of the examples are in what would be viewed as archaic languages, the problems themselves are agnostic to the selection of computer languages used. One of the lessons is that there is no single silver-bullet language, and it is best to learn how to select the right instrument for the part.

Each programming Etude is presented as a problem. Background information is given to aid in the composition of the solution, and for some of the puzzles there is a supplied example solution in the back of the book. A rough time frame is given (ranging from a few hours for a single person to a class team project that might take an entire semester).

The focus on each Etude is in the critical thinking required to develop the solution while the actual implementation is assumed to be already within the grasp of the reader. Again to use the musical metaphor, the reader is assumed to be able to play several musical instruments, understand scales, chords, and can read sheet music, and is now ready to move on to their own musical compositions"

An amazon review:
This book and the other one on Advanced programming with Pascal are ideal for beginning computer science students to learn programming fundamentals and data structures. Needless to say, this book is outdated, but then, how many languages are "current" after two years? If you want the plain basics, get this book. If not, go for those monster 2000 page java books... Pascal is beautiful as simple things are.

Sharpe, W.F. and Jacob, N.L.  BASIC An Introduction to Computer Programming Using the BASIC Language  Third edition  (Free Press, 1979)



"This book is designed to allow the user to think of a computer as if the latter understands the BASIC language. Thus no details of any of the supporting systems are included. This makes the book particularly suited for those unable to use a computer system, because it allows them to concentrate on the computational and logical properties of a high-level computer language with relatively little concern for clerical details".

Book Description:
(from the back cover) Computers are coming home! Now with the development of the Atari ready-to-go systems, you, too, can use the computer as a tool in your home, school, or office.
Tens of thousands of people of all ages used earlier editions of this book to teach themselves the programming language BASIC. So can you! This Atari edition makes it even easier for you to dispel the mystical aura that often surrounds the computer. You will learn how to write computer programs to use in your home or office, in any field from education to business to the humanities. You need no special math or science background to read, understand, and write programs in ATARI BASIC.
This book shows you how to read, write, and understand the ATARI BASIC programming language used in these new personal-sized microcomputers. In just a few days you can learn to do nearly anything you want using ATARI BASIC programs -- without any special background or previous experience with a computer. You'll find detailed descriptions of all the ATARI BASIC you will need to know to make your computer work for you. Numerous applications and games are also included.
