Business at the Speed of Thought: Succeeding in the Digital Economy Date: 2000 Business at the Speed of Thought: Succeeding in the Digital Economy

Amazon.co.uk Review
So where do you want to go tomorrow? That's the question Bill Gates tries to answer in Business @ the Speed of Thought. Gates offers a 12-step programme for companies wanting to do business in the next millennium. The book's premise: Thanks to technology, the speed of business is accelerating at an ever-increasing rate and to survive, it must develop an infrastructure--a "digital nervous system"--that allows for the unfettered movement of information inside a company. Gates writes: "The most meaningful way to differentiate your company from your competition ... is to do an outstanding job with information. How you gather, manage and use information will determine whether you win or lose."

The book is peppered with examples of companies that have already successfully engineered information networks to manage inventory, sales, and customer relationships better. The examples run from Coca-Cola's ability to download sales data from vending machines to Microsoft's own internal practices, such as its reliance on e-mail for company-wide communication and the conversion of most paper processes to digital ones (an assertion that seems somewhat at odds with the now-infamous "by hand on sheets of paper" method of tracking profits that was revealed during Microsoft's antitrust trial).

Product Description
Most companies have a sizeable investment in technology but are realising only 20% of its potential benefit. BUSINESS @ THE SPEED OF THOUGHT introduces the concept of the digital nervous system which unites all systems and processes under one common infrastructure, allowing companies to make quantum leaps in efficiency, growth and profit. Using detailed tours of Microsoft and other major corporations, Gates demonstrates how integrated technology can transform any business by energizing its three major elements: customer/partner relationships, employees and process, and offers practical suggestions on how this can be achieved.

ISBN/ASIN: 0137469756
ISBN-13: 9780137469758
Number of pages: 417

 

Description:

This book is written for computer system performance analysts. Its goal is to teach them to apply queueing network models in their work, as tools to assist in answering the questions of cost and performance that arise throughout the life of a computer system. The approach to the subject arises from the authors' collective experience in contributing to the theory of queueing network modelling, in embodying this theory in performance analysis tools, in applying these tools in the field, and in teaching computer system analysis using queueing network models in academic and industrial settings.

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

By Joseph Stoy  & Christophre Strachey May 1972

Amazon Reviews:
Turbo Pascal 3.0 was the affordable program which opened up the PC for programmers, and this is the original manual shipped with Turbo 3. This is one of the best references to using Turbo Pascal in DOS mode.

This was the first integrated development environment (IDE) and a revalation in 1982. Prior to its release, compilers were run from the command line or as batch jobs on the main frames. This might be of interest to computer programming historians; however, given the nature of the industry, it's likely to just be forgotten or mentioned with a little smirk.

Amazon Review

At the time, this was the best reference book for explaining how the Commodore PET worked and how to program it.
Obviously it has been superseded by all the many developments in computers since then, but if you are still working with, or studying, a vintage Commodor PET, or its simulated equivalent, this book is a must.

ADA Programming Language
Author  Ian C. Pyle  
Source  Pages: 293  
Medium: Paperback
Year of Publication: 1981
ISBN:0130039217 
Publisher Prentice Hall PTR  Upper Saddle River, NJ, USA 

Ada is a structured, statically typed, imperative, wide-spectrum, and object-oriented high-level computer programming language, extended from Pascal and other languages. It was originally designed by a team led by Jean Ichbiah of CII Honeywell Bull under contract to the United States Department of Defense (DoD) from 1977 to 1983 to supersede the hundreds of programming languages then used by the DoD. Ada is strongly typed and compilers are validated for reliability in mission-critical applications, such as avionics software. Ada is an international standard; the current version (known as Ada 2005) is defined by joint ISO/ANSI standard, combined with major Amendment ISO/IEC 8652:1995/Amd 1:2007.

Ada was named after Ada Lovelace (1815–1852), who is often credited as being the first computer programmer.

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"

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.

Planning a computer system: Project Stretch Date: 1962 Planning a computer system: Project Stretch

Author: Werner Buchholz     
Publisher McGraw-Hill, Inc.  Hightstown, NJ, USA

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.]

Amazon Review:
It's amazing how much this book manages to pack into its three-hundred-odd pages, yet it is definitely showing its age.
Most of the 'real world' examples - systems "capable of between one and ten million operations per second" and their software - date to the late 1970s or early 1980s. Digital logic is covered and a simple microprogrammed CPU is worked through as a (good) example but it neglects the fact that, in the last fifteen years, CPU architectures have moved completely away from microcode, passing through RISC and onwards to VLIW. There is obviously no mention of the modern internet as the book pre-dates the WWW. GUIs - or, in fact, any user interfaces less complex than SQL - are another notable omission.

The fundamentals of algorithms and CS are, of course, timeless and this book is an average - though highly compact - introduction to the subject. For those with more time available, I'd recommend 'Foundations of Computer Science' by Aho/Ullman and Knuth's 'The Art of Computer Programming' contains far more detailed coverage of algorithms. Of course, no matter what you choose, this book will still be required reading for the CompSci course at Cambridge...

Howard Davies has a First Class Honours degree in Engineering Science and a DPhil from the University of Oxford. From 1964 to 1977, he worked in the Data Handling Division of CERN (European Organization for Nu-clear Research) in Geneva, initially as a Scientific Programmer, later as a Group Leader and Project Manager for CERNnet, CERN’s first general purpose, internal network. Between 1977 and 1993, he was Director of the Computer Unit at the University of Exeter, responsible not only for the provision of computing services to all academic departments within the university but also for the development of services based on the use of JANET (the national research network in the UK) and its successors. During this period, he spent six months sabbatical leave in 1986 as a Visiting Computer Specialist at the Stanford Linear Accelerator Center, Stanford, California. He acted as (part-time) Director of the Interim COSINE Project Management Unit from 1989 to 1991 and from 1992 to 1994 he was Vice-President of RARE. He was appointed Joint General Manager of DANTE in 1993 and played a prominent role in the implementation across Europe of an increasingly powerful infrastructure to support network-based services. He retired at the end of 2001 having seen the introduction into service of the GÉANT network.


Beatrice Bressan is responsible for the outreach of the TOTEM experiment at CERN (European Organization for Nuclear Research), Geneva, and is also a science writer. She has more than ten years of experience in the field of scientific and technological communication with extensive experience in journalism, media publishing and public relations. She is a member of the European Union of Science Journalists' Associations (EUSJA). After her university studies in mathematical physics and science communication, she completed her PhD research and carried out a postdoctoral fellowship on knowledge management and knowledge transfer inside CERN for the Department of Physical Sciences at Helsinki University. She has worked with-in the Technology Transfer Group at CERN, taking care of the production of promotional material, at SIB (Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics) as Head of Communications, and at the Department of Physics at Geneva University, being responsible for their communications. Through her work, she aims to give a better understanding of complex scientific and technological topics for politicians, industrialists and the general public.

The Rough Guide to the Internet 2000 Date: 2000 The Rough Guide to the Internet 2000

5th Edition (Internet (Rough Guides), 2000) [Paperback]
by Angus J. Kennedy (Author)

Amazon Review:
The Rough Guide series, famous for its listings of skanky Italian hostels and super-cheap Istanbul eateries, now covers the wildest territory of all. The Internet: The Rough Guide 2000 is a tourist's guide to the online world, complete with information on what equipment you need, what it'll cost, and what to see once you're connected. This latest edition reflects recent changes in site locations and contents.

Hardly bigger than a coaster, this book packs a remarkable amount of information into its minimal bulk. Though its small format makes it somewhat difficult to use (it won't lie open), author Angus Kennedy competently explains everything from basic connection procedures to multimedia and page publishing in a fraction of the space other books require (and at far less cost too). Fans of other Rough Guide books will be pleased by coverage of the Internet as it applies to travelers (Web-based mail sites, cybercafés, and the like).

The how-to information represents only half of what this guide contains. The rest is a random walk, largely on the Web's weird side. You'll find references to sites claiming to be the grossest (in an 8-year-old's sense of the word) on the Web, a site where you can get a downward-ticking death clock, Mr. Cranky's movie reviews, and "99 Ways to Open a Beer Bottle." Sure, there's some serious reference stuff, but it misses the point. Overall, the book is almost as much fun as opening 99 beer bottles in a skanky Italian hostel. --David Wall

Topics covered: The Internet from every angle. What it is, what it's good for, why and how you should connect. Having connected you, the author skips off on a eclectic tour of things to see and do online.

Sinclair ZX Spectrum Micro-PROLOG Primer Date: 1983 Sinclair ZX Spectrum Micro-PROLOG Primer

by K L Clark, F G McCabe and J R Ennals 1983
302 pages small format paperback

Micro-PROLOG is the name of a variant or dialect of Prolog , initially created to microcomputer of 8 bits, popularized in the early of 1980 . Fue usado en la enseñanza pública, normalmente como introducción a la programación lógica ya la Inteligencia Artificial . Was used in public education, usually as an introduction to logic programming and Artificial Intelligence .

Sinclair Research launched a package that includes a 'primer' on the language, Micro Prolog, together with a cassette containing the interpreter and a few example programs. Prolog is the language that the Japanese have selected as a major component in their ambitious project for a new breed of computers called the Fifth Generation - planned for the next decade. And considering the Japanese designers are hoping to build computers that can emulate human reasoning powers, it's hardly surprising that the programming language they have chosen is a few light years away from homely old Basic.The name Prolog is derived from the phrase 'programming in logic'. The language was originally developed at the University of Marseilles about ten years ago,

Micro-PROLOG is the name of a variant or dialect of Prolog , initially created to microcomputer of 8 bits, popularized in the early of 1980.

Sinclair Research launched a package that includes a 'primer' on the language, Micro Prolog, together with a cassette containing the interpreter and a few example programs. Prolog is the language that the Japanese have selected as a major component in their ambitious project for a new breed of computers called the Fifth Generation - planned for the next decade. And considering the Japanese designers are hoping to build computers that can emulate human reasoning powers, it's hardly surprising that the programming language they have chosen is a few light years away from homely old Basic.The name Prolog is derived from the phrase 'programming in logic'. The language was originally developed at the University of Marseilles about ten years ago,

ICL Series 39 An Introduction to VME Date: December 1989 ICL Series 39 An Introduction to VME

This ICL Series 39 An Introduction to VME is a quality publication of 168 pages with coloured illustrations
The ICL Series 39 was a range of mainframe and minicomputer computer systems released by the UK manufacturer ICL in 1985.

The Series 39 range was based upon the New Range concept and the VME operating system from the company's ICL 2900 line, and was introduced as two ranges:

Series 39 "Estriel" systems (Series 39 Level 40 and above, including multinodes), which replaced previous mid-range and large processors from the 2900 range, and needed a full computer room environment
Series 39 DM1 systems (up to Series 39 Level 30), which were intended to replace the smaller processors such as the ICT1901/2, the ICL2903/4 and the ME29 ranges. These brought mainframe class operating system facilities into the office environment, a first for ICL

The original Series 39 introduced the "S3L" processors and microcodes, and a nodal architecture (see ICL VME) which is a form of Non-Uniform Memory Access which allowed nodes to be up to 500 metres apart.

The Series 39 range introduced Nodal Architecture, a novel implementation of distributed shared memory that can be seen as a hybrid of a multiprocessor system and a cluster design. Each machine consists of a number of nodes, and each node contains its own order-code processor and main memory. Virtual machines are typically located (at any one time) on one node, but have the capability to run on any node and to be relocated from one node to another. Discs and other peripherals are shared between nodes. Nodes are connected using a high-speed optical bus using multiple fibre optic cables, which is used to provide applications with a virtual shared memory. Memory segments that are marked as shared (public or global segments) are replicated to each node, with updates being broadcast over the inter-node network. Processes which use unshared memory segments (nodal or local) run in complete isolation from other nodes and processes.

The semaphore instructions prove their worth by controlling access to the shared writable memory segments while allowing the contents to be moved around efficiently.

Overall, a well configured Series 39 with VME had an architecture which can provide a significant degree of proofing against disasters, a nod to the abortive VME/T ideas of the previous decade.

Reviews:
"I bought this book to help me with my AS Computing course as Pascal is one of the languages we have to learn. It was very helpful with nice code samples, well annotated lines and practise exercises. Worth every penny!

This is a great book for the beginner programmer wanting to learn something simple and quick, if you are starting pascal or delphi.

This book was an excellent read and further more an excellent reference book. Although I was not new to programming, I was new to pascal.

This book filters out the crap and really shows you what you need to know. If you are an a-level student needing help with pascal, get this book now.

It helped me to complete my project with ease.

With really great coverage of file organisation methods (serial, random, pointers etc) it really will help you."

Amazon Review:
This book is much more informative than *The Official Book of Leisure Suit Larry*. It doesn't give hints, it tells you exactly what to do. Deciphering hints is fun, but not when you're trying to relax on your summer vacation by playing what you thought would be an easy computer game. It also includes Larry's story of how be became to be the leisure suit wearing babe magnet god that he is. If you love Leisure Suit Larry, you'll love this book.

Paperback, 280 pages
isbn0273028200    (isbn13: 9780273028208)

This basic introductory text on microprocessors and their applications assumes little previous knowledge of computer hardware. The essential characteristics of microprocessors and their operating and application principles are provided with the minimum of electrical/electronic detail. In its considerably revised and updated second edition, the Intel 8085 is the basic reference. Students in technical colleges and universities will find the approach particularly suitable. Although the book stands on its own, the many program and application examples can be run directly on a microprocessor prototyping system, which makes the book suitable for a hands-on introductory course

The SECD Microprocessor: A Verification Case Study Date: 31st May 1992 The SECD Microprocessor: A Verification Case Study

The SECD Microprocessor: A Verification Case Study (The Springer International Series in Engineering and Computer Science) (Hardcover)
by Brian T. Graham (Author)

The SECD Microprocessor is a substantial case study in hardware specification and verification. The subject is a silicon implementation of Landin's SECD machine, which is transformed into a layout, formally specified, and partially verified using the HOL proof assistant. It is important as a nontrivial worked example, clearly describing the organization and execution of the correctness of proof, and by making the sources available, will be helpful to those considering the use or learning about the application of formal methods.
The architecture is designed to provide support for functional programming, with complex machine instruction to support recursive definitions and function calls. This considerably raises the complexity of the state transitions to be verified, and an abstract data type and operations are introduced to express the specification.
The SECD Microprocessor illustrates what formal methods can achieve today, not only by some expert elite, but by anyone prepared to carefully consider the problems at hand.

Language English
ISBN-10: 0201100886
ISBN-13: 978-0201100884
Product Dimensions: 23.6 x 15.7 x 3.6 cm

This introduction to compilers is the direct descendant of the well-known book by Aho and Ullman, Principles of Compiler Design. The authors present updated coverage of compilers based on research and techniques that have been developed in the field over the past few years. The book provides a thorough introduction to compiler design and covers topics such as context-free grammars, fine state machines, and syntax-directed translation

Amazon Review:
During each compiler stage (lexical analysis, syntax analysis, translation, type checking, translation, code generation, and code optimization) multiple methods, strategies, and algorithms are presented. This comprehensive book examines items that are unique to the various languages presented (Fortran, C, and Pascal); there are even sections on dealing with estimation of types (10.12) and symbolic debugging of optimized code (10.13). Wow! The exercises are thorough, challenging, and thought provoking. Examples are interleaved with the discussion and algorithms. There is an excellent set of historical and bibliographic information at the end of each chapter. The use of automated tools such as lex, yacc, and compiler-generators is discussed throughout the text. This is an advanced book, however a good understanding of compilers can be obtained without understanding the details of every algorithm.

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."

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.

GEOS Graphic Environment Operating System Version 2.0 Date: 1986 GEOS Graphic Environment Operating System Version 2.0

 

For Commodore 64, 64C and 128 computers
Published by Berkeley Softworks
308 pages

GEOS (Graphic Environment Operating System) is an operating system from Berkeley Softworks (later GeoWorks). Originally designed for the Commodore 64 and released in 1986, it provided a graphical user interface for this popular 8-bit computer.

GEOS closely resembled early versions of Mac OS and included a graphical word processor (geoWrite) and paint program (geoPaint). For many years, Commodore bundled GEOS with its redesigned and cost reduced C64, the C64C. At its peak, GEOS was the third most popular operating system in the world in terms of units shipped, trailing only MS-DOS and Mac OS.

Other GEOS-compatible software packages were available from Berkeley Softworks or from third parties, including a reasonably sophisticated desktop publishing application called geoPublish and a spreadsheet called geoCalc. While geoPublish was not as sophisticated as Aldus Pagemaker and geoCalc not as sophisticated as Microsoft Excel, the packages provided reasonable functionality, and Berkeley Softworks founder Brian Dougherty claimed the company ran its business using its own software on Commodore 8-bit computers for several years.

Enhanced versions of GEOS later became available for the Commodore 128 and the Apple II family. A lesser-known version was also released for the Commodore Plus/4.

Written by a group of programmers, led by Dougherty, who cut their teeth on limited-resource video game machines such as the Atari 2600, GEOS was revered for what it could accomplish on machines with 64–128 kB of RAM memory and 1–2 MHz of 8-bit processing power.

LCP is a data-driven program design technique.  It replaces the intuitive, trial-and-error approach to programming with a disciplined approach, based on logical rules.  Thus “the art of programming” is really transformed into an engineering discipline.

Invaluable for structuring large batch programs, LCP is a powerful technique for any kind of program or procedure (including the most neglected but nevertheless equally important human/manual procedures).

Publisher: Springer-Verlag New York, Inc (Dec 3 1990)
Language: English
ISBN-13: 978-0387534374

This book contains papers presented at the Symposium on Computational Logic held during the 7th ESPRIT Conference. Ten leading researchers in computational logic were invited to contribute papers. The papers range from some on specialized research topics to some which give an overview and a glimpse into the future of computational logic. A major theme of the symposium was the likely future impact of computational logic, and there was a panel session on the topic "Programming in 2010: the Role of Computational Logic". The position papers of the panelists are included in the book. The book will be of interest to researchers and graduate students in logic programming, database systems, artificial intelligence, and software engineering. This volume is the first of the ESPRIT Basic Research Series. The ESPRIT Basic Research efforts aim at forging strong links between European academic and industrial teams carrying out research, often interdisciplinary, at the forefront of information technology. The quality of content of this series and its broad distribution should have a major impact in making these advances accessible to both academic and industrial researchers.

Rebel Code: Linux and the Open Source Revolution  
by Glyn Moody 2001 
Published by Penguin 
343 pages paperback

Many excellent programs have been produced by the open source movement, in which programmers collaborate to develop software that can be distributed free of charge.  
ISBN 0-14-029804-5
 
A high-velocity chronicle of the open source movement-and its impact on computing, business, and culture.
 
The open source saga has many fascinating chapters. It is partly the story of Linus Torvalds, the master hacker who would become chief architect of the Linux operating system. It is also the story of thousands of devoted programmers around the world who spontaneously worked in tandem to complete the race to shape Linux into the ultimate killer app. Rebel Code traces the remarkable roots of this unplanned revolution. It echoes the twists and turns of Linux's improbable development, as it grew through an almost biological process of accretion and finally took its place at the heart of a jigsaw puzzle that would become the centerpiece of open source. With unprecedented access to the principal players, Moody has written a powerful tale of individual innovation versus big business. Rebel Code provides a from-the-trenches perspective and looks ahead to how open source is challenging long-held conceptions of technology, commerce, and culture.
 
Everyone in computing has heard of Linux--hundreds of millions use it every day. Every Net user accesses Linux systems dozens of times during any Net session. Yet, because people associate products with companies, Linux--with its thousands of largely anonymous volunteer developers and free availability--is a difficult fit with our world view.

Rebel Code puts Linux into historical and social contexts. Based largely on interviews with the main players and precise historical data (Linux kernel releases are dated to the second), it traces "free software" from its early '80s origin--with Robert Stallman's founding of the GNU Project--and takes it as far as the end of 2000--with GNU/Linux becoming a worldwide phenomenon that runs handheld PDAs, PCs and Macs, IBM mainframes, and the world's biggest supercomputers.
 
Glyn Moody charts every milestone in the development of the Linux kernel, from Linus Torvalds's first installation of Minix. As importantly, he follows the progress of major "free software" projects (essential to the success of GNU/Linux) from Emacs and GCC to Sendmail and XFree 86, and finishes with KDE and Gnome.

The Telecommuters  by Francis Kinsman
Published 1987 by Wiley 
 
In 2009, much software is developed by people working from home or as a collaborative effort between people in different parts of the globe. In 1987, home working was a novelty instituted by people who wanted to enable parents of young children to divide their time more easily between work and home life. 
 
Teleworking has been in operation for twenty five years but it is only recently, through improved communication and more accurate information systems that this way of working has become a possibility for many people. This book looks at the technological, social and organizational trends that have made this possible and, through the use of case studies, examines the advantages and disadvantages of working in this way. In particular it focuses on two of the organisations to pioneer teleworking - ICL and F International.

Reviews from Amazon:
"I bought this book in 1990. I still read it from time to time. I could not have been a successful programmer without this. I would strongly recommend this to anybody who wants to be a programmer. The first ever book you should read. I will save this book for my children, grand children and so on."
"This book "How to solve it by computer" is a must read book for those who want to be programmer. Dromey he teaches each and every problem in the easy and understanble way.He does't use any particular language to solve all those problems, he just uses psudo code engish like language. Any persona who wants to be programmer should first read this book and then only start learning Porgramming languages."
"This book should be treated as Bible. It starts with very simple examples as swaping two numbers and goes in depth taking you along with it. I have not found anything as good as this in many years. It gives a beginner programmer much needed confidence very soon. It does not use much programming language (It uses pascal syntax...but pascal is almost English). If you are entering into programming field..start with this book. You will never forget "How to Solve it by computers" in your entire life. This book has no shelf life. You will never need this again....but you cannot do it without first time."

From the Publisher
An introduction to the principles of object-oriented technology.

REVIEW
I've used it for a couple of years in a three-day introductory courses about OOA/D and the 'students' found it easy to learn. It's good because it softly introduces to the concepts of object orientation keeping in mind the fact that many people worked for years in a 'functional' way. Also good because you can use it every day while making analysis. In fact it's a manual. The two examples (one about an airline system and another about vehicle categorization) are developed together with the various aspects of the methodology and this helps to understand how to apply it. It's good also because it clearly separates analysis from design concerns. Of course now shows its age, but can be a good introductory book.

Note from the Author.

I spent about twenty years in sales and marketing, before becoming 'retired' in 1997, at the age of 39 after a company take over. Since when I have been travelling and cobbling my own notes on the Z88 into this book. Several years of my career were spent fighting for British exports, in the front line, notably seven years in Australia where I managed a British subsidiary, and, additionally founded, edited and published a semi-technical periodical over a period of several years, before returning to England for domestic reasons.

During 'time' in Australia I developed an general interest in computers, mainly through my contacts with my good friend Stuart Smith, who worked with a mainframe computer. In those days computers were very expensive and relied a lot on data input through punched cards (a throwback to nineteenth century technology). Since those days things in the computer world have changed a lot, and not the least of these changes, in my opinion, is the introduction of the Z88 computer, which offers real computing power commensurate with the real needs of 'personal' computing, within optimum parameters of weight, size, endurance and ease of use. I hope you find my notes and methods contained in this book of use in the guidance and inspiration of your own applications.

Language: English
ISBN-10: 020140348X
ISBN-13: 978-0201403480

Product Description
From the author of the bestselling Object-Oriented Software Engineering, this is the first book to combine object-oriented technology and business process engineering. Jacobson demonstrates how object technology can be used in the BPR model, how the requirements of a new software system can be captured as a result of business engineering, and much more.

REVIEW
The well-integrated contents include: business engineering (definitions, the "new company", BPR, risk management), what is business modelling (definitions, traditional ways of modelling- SA/SD, IDEF, SADT, working with business models), object orientation (definitions & modelling), OO business modelling (re-engineering, business context), architecture, reversing the existing business, forward business engineering, an example, building the supporting information system, managing OO business engineering, and scaling up to a large business.

Strengths include the attractive appropriate use of figures, sidebars, references and supporting material; and the depth of proven use cases and applications supporting the credibility of approach. A book you can read cover to cover, or dip into a section for reference. Much of the approach is now included in Rational's UML - so the book still has value for business and software development.

Criticisms include the lack of more fully worked examples, and the lack of checklists (although chapter summaries are good).

Overall a great intermediate-level text (not introductory nor complete enough to be expert) for software developers, engineers, and business information systems consultants.

Author: Tracy Kidder
Pbl: Penguin Books, England, 1982
Penguin Books, 1982. 254 pages. First published in the USA by Little Brown & Company. First published in Great Britian by Allen Lane 1982


Amazon.co.uk Review
The computer revolution brought with it new methods of getting work done--just look at today's news for reports of hard-driven, highly motivated young men and women developing software and online commerce who sacrifice evenings and weekends to meet impossible deadlines. Tracy Kidder got a preview of this world in the late 1970s when he observed the engineers of Data General design and build a new 32-bit minicomputer in just one year. His thoughtful, prescient book, The Soul of a New Machine, tells us stories of 35-year-old "veteran" engineers hiring new college graduates and encouraging them to work harder and faster on complex and difficult projects, exploiting the youngsters' ignorance of normal scheduling yet engendering a new kind of work ethic.

Eran Tromer's Book Reviews 
Atlantic Monthly Press, 1981
Winner of the Pulitzer prize for non-fiction
They Say IBM's Entry Into Minicomputers Will Legitimatize The Market.
The Bastards Say, Welcome.
 
The Soul of a New Machine tracks a team of engineers at Data General Corporation working on an innovative new computer. It follows the life of the project and those involved in it for over a year, from the background of the undertaking until its completion. During this time, the social and professional situations undergo different phases, some quite dramatic. Kidder does a superb work of capturing their essence, and combining them into a coherent account. The result is a gripping tale of of hope and anxiety, of will power and despair, and of immense dedication.
Along the way, various aspects of the engineers' lives are revealed. Some are characteristic of many engineering projects, while others are unique to the peculiar circumstances. At times the personal lives of various members are emphasized, while at others the team-wide social pattern gets the stage. Some sections dwell into semi-technical situations and anecdotes, while others deal with management and politics. All of these combine into a well-orchestrated hymn to the Man behind the Machine.
 
This is not a technical book. While some terminology and concepts are needed to fully appreciate the numerous anecdotal cases, Kidder does a good job of providing the context. On the other hand, those with the relevant technical background will find these digressions more amusing then annoying, and will get enough details to realize the immense technical challanges at hand -- defining and implementing a state-of-the-art computer while maintaining compatibility with an archaic architecture, and doing so with an impossible deadline and insufficient resources.
 
The bigger game was "pinball". "You win one game, you get to play another. You win with this machine, you get to build the next." Pinball was what counted. 
Personally, I found this book very exciting. This heroic tale of the technological frontier is for me a long sought-for counterweight for the traditional drab image (and, at times, self-image) of those involved. I found it surprisingly easy to identify with many situations, having undergone some of the psychological torture tests and draconian management techniques whose tale is narrated, not to mention having experienced the technical situations.
The book could be criticized for being unbalanced in favor of the heroic. While the factual accounts appear reasonably balanced, the overall emotional tone is not. Also, some characters recieve a fairly shallow treatment. Indeed, Tom West, arguably the central character, still remains a mystery to the reader when the strory is over. But this does little to overshadow the brilliantly original perspective Kidder presents.
 
He went away from the basement and left this note on his terminal: "I'm going to a commune in Vermont and will deal with no unit of time shorter than a season." 
I'd strongly recommend this book to anyone engaged in engineering in general, and computer-related in particular -- they are most certain to enjoy it. For others, it may provide some insight into the people behind technology.

1995 | 280 pages
ISBN: 131723979
DESCRIPTION
This first book on the union of two rapidly growing approaches to programming--visual programming and object technology--provides a window on a subject of increasing commercial importance. It is an introduction and reference for cutting-edge developers, and for researchers, students, and enthusiasts interested in the design of visual OOP languages and environments.
Visual Object-Oriented Programming includes chapters on both emerging research and on a few classic systems, that together can help those who design visual object-oriented programming systems avoid some known pitfalls. The book contains an experience report on the use of available visual programming languages in a commercial setting, and chapters, by some of the leaders of this cutting-edge subject, covering systems such as Prograph, VIPR, PURSUIT, ThingLab II, Vampire, Forms/3, Self's environment, Vista, SPE, and Cerno.
 
ABOUT THE AUTHORS...
Margaret Burnett, a faculty member at Oregon State University, is well known as a visual programming researcher. Her current work focuses on expanding the capabilities of visual programming languages. Dr. Burnett won the National Science Foundation's Young Investigator Award in 1994. Adele Goldberg is Chairman of ParcPlace Systems. She led the design team for the widely used OOP system, Smalltalk, and was the recipient of the ACM Systems Software Award in 1987. Ted Lewis is Chairman of the Computer Science Department at the Naval Postgraduate School. He is Editor-in-Chief of IEEE's Computer magazine and has authored or co-authored over 20 books.

Where Wizards Stay Up Late: The Origins Of The Internet Date: 1998 Where Wizards Stay Up Late: The Origins Of The Internet

Amazon.com Review
Considering that the history of the Internet is perhaps better documented internally than any other technological construct, it is remarkable how shadowy its origins have been to most people, including die-hard Net-denizens!

At last, Hafner and Lyon have written a well-researched story of the origins of the Internet substantiated by extensive interviews with its creators who delve into many interesting details such as the controversy surrounding the adoption of our now beloved "@" sign as the separator of usernames and machine addresses. Essential reading for anyone interested in the past -- and the future -- of the Net specifically, and telecommunications generally. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From Publishers Weekly
Hafner, coauthor of Cyberpunk, and Lyon, assistant to the president of the University of Texas, here unveil the Sputnik-era beginnings of the Internet, the groundbreaking scientific work that created it and the often eccentric, brilliant scientists and engineers responsible. Originally funded during the Eisenhower administration by IPTO (Information Processing Techniques Office) within the Defense Department's Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA), ARPANET, the Internet's predecessor, was devised as a way to share far-flung U.S. computer resources at a time when computers were wildly expensive, room-sized bohemoths unable to communicate with any other. The husband-and-wife writing team profile the computer engineering firm of Bolt Baranek and Newman, which produced the original prototypes for ARPANET, and they profile the men (there were virtually no women) and an alphabet soup of agencies, universities and software that made the Internet possible. And while the book attempts to debunk the conventional notion that ARPANET was devised primarily as a communications link that could survive nuclear war (essentially it was not), pioneer developers like Paul Baran (who, along, with British Scientist Donald Davies devised the Internet's innovative packet-switching message technology) recognized the importance of an indestructible message medium in an age edgy over the prospects of global nuclear destruction. The book is excellent at enshrining little known but crucial scientist/administrators like Bob Taylor, Larry Roberts and Joseph Licklider, many of whom laid the groundwork for the computer science industry.

GEM on the Atari ST Date: 1986 GEM on the Atari ST

First Publishing 1986
414 pages
Hardback

Digital Research (DRI) created the Graphical Environment Manager as an add-on program for personal computers. GEM was developed to work with existing CP/M and MS-DOS operating systems on business computers such as IBM-compatibles. It was developed from DRI software, known as GSX, designed by a former PARC employee. The similarity to the Macintosh desktop led to a copyright lawsuit from Apple Computer, and a settlement which involved some changes to GEM. This was to be the first of a series of 'look and feel' lawsuits related to GUI design in the 1980s.

GEM received widespread use in the consumer market from 1985, when it was made the default user interface built in to the TOS operating system of the Atari ST line of personal computers. It was also bundled by other computer manufacturers and distributors, such as Amstrad. Later, it was distributed with the best-sold Digital Research version of DOS for IBM PC compatibles, the DR-DOS 6.0. The GEM desktop faded from the market with the withdrawal of the Atari ST line in 1992 and with the popularity of the Microsoft Windows 3.0 in the PC front by the same years.

Review by an Amazon customer:
By A Customer:
Experiments with EPROMS is an invaluable reference for the electronics hobbiest who wishes to get started with EPROMS.With its fifteen simple EPROM projects, including a poor man's EPROM programmer (which saves a ton of money that deters many people from getting in to this exciting field), it encourages many nights' tinkering in the basement.While the circuit diagrams are not completely intuitive (repeated connections are left out, conserving space but confusing the reader), the basic concepts are present and well explained. The book also contains an extensive reference section, ranging from an introduction to boolean algebra, to IC pinouts that will come in handy if you lack the bulky, dog-eared reference set that would otherwise contain this information.

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 Pick operating system (often called just "the Pick system" or simply "Pick") is a demand-paged, multiuser, virtual memory, time-sharing operating system based around a unique "multivalued" database. It is used primarily for business data processing. Although it started on a variety of minicomputers, the system and various implementations eventually spread to a large variety of microcomputers and mainframe computers, and is still in use today.

The Pick database is a 'hash-file' data management system. A hash-file system is a collection of dynamic associative arrays which are organized altogether and linked and controlled using associative files as a database management system. Being hash-file oriented, Pick provides efficiency in data access time in many cases. All data structures in Pick are hash-files (at the lowest level) meaning records are stored as associated couplets of a primary key to a set of values.

Pick was originally implemented as the Generalized Information Retrieval Language System (GIRLS) on an IBM System/360 in 1965 by Don Nelson and Dick Pick at TRW for use by the U.S. Army to control the inventory of Cheyenne helicopter parts. Pick was subsequently commercially released in 1973 by Microdata (and their British distributor CMC) as the Reality Operating System now supplied by Northgate Information Solutions.

Amazon Review by Linda Zarate (Amazon user published 2002-03-26 )  
 When this book was first published in 1991 it presented a viable approach to getting IT under control. The 1995 second edition contained refinements and was even more valuable because it came out in the aftermath of the industry-wide movement to decentralize, which only reinforced the central theme of the book: IT needs to be managed centrally. Although this book is as valid today as it was when first published, others with a fresher approach have been published in the ensuing 7 years since the second edition. However, this book is still invaluable as a secondary text for a number of reasons:
(1) It is focused on business control of IT, and centralized control at that. This message needs to be reinforced, in my opinion, and the book provides compelling reasons for doing so.

(2) Chapter 3's discussion of the IT director's job is really an examination of politics and challenges that still doggedly remain in IT in spite of being exposed year after year. The case studies in this chapter alone make this book worth buying and reading. Chapter 4, The Culture Gap, is also invaluable and shows that after 7 years since this edition came out that we're still grappling with the same old issues.

(3) The book's anecdotes, case studies and pull-no-punches comments about pitfalls and challenges are sanity checks that should be revisited by pulling this book from your shelf, dusting it off and turning to a random page - you are sure to spot a phrase or illustration that will influence you. Think of it as high-tech I Ching.

If you want a more up-to-date text on managing IT methodically and quantitatively I recommend anything written by Dan Remenyi. However, if you want deep insights and a book from which you can find inspiration or ideas by turning to a random page, this will serve you long after the more technical tomes have lost their appeal.

Literate Programming Date: 1992 Literate Programming

by Donald E. Knuth (Stanford, California: Center for the Study of Language and Information, 1992), 368 pages
(CSLI Lecture Notes, no. 27.)
ISBN 0-937073-80-6

Literate programming is a methodology that combines a programming language with a documentation language, thereby making programs more robust, more portable, more easily maintained, and arguably more fun to write than programs that are written only in a high-level language. The main idea is to treat a program as a piece of literature, addressed to human beings rather than to a computer. The program is also viewed as a hypertext document, rather like the World Wide Web. (Indeed, I used the word WEB for this purpose long before CERN grabbed it!) This book is an anthology of essays including my early papers on related topics such as structured programming, as well as the article in The Computer Journal that launched Literate Programming itself. The articles have been revised, extended, and brought up to date.

Table of Contents:

   1. Computer programming as an art [P68]
   2. Structured programming with go to statements [P67]
   3. A structured program to generate all topological sorting arrangements [P65]
   4. Literate programming [P109]
   5. Programming pearls: Sampling [Q78]
   6. Programming pearls, continued: Common words [Q79]
   7. How to read a WEB [from TeX: The Program]
   8. Excerpts from the programs for TeX and METAFONT [from Computers & Typesetting, volumes B and D]
   9. Mathematical writing [from Mathematical Writing]
  10. The errors of TeX [P124]
  11. The error log of TeX [P124, with new material]
  12. An example of CWEB [never before published]
  13. Further reading: A comprehensive bibliography of Literate Programming [never before published]

Amazon Review:
"t was written by a mainframer for mainframers, and the slant towards MVS needs to be aligned to contemporary systems.

However, here are some of the reasons why I feel this book still has value:

- The principles haven't changed. While the first chapter on debugging is aimed at mainframe systems programmers, consider some of the topics - "What did you change recently?", "Corrective Redesign", and "Timing Problems". These, and the other eighteen items covered are most certainly relevant today regardless of the programming language(s) or environments. Other chapters that are well grounded in principles include (3) Prevention, (4) Coding Practices, (6) Testing and (7) Management.

- It's an easy read. Each chapter addresses topics in short one-to-two page essays. I especially like the wry humor which reminds me of Geoffrey James' "The Tao of Programming" (ISBN 0931137071), and the fact that each topic is covered in sufficient depth to make you think, but doesn't go into superfluous or unnecessary detail.

- Gerald Weinberg's forward to this book could have been written yesterday instead of in 1989!

Of course, if you are one of the shrinking group of MVS (and VM) systems programmers this book will be much more meaningful, but I think that any programmer will benefit from this book. I would love to see it updated and republished in a 3rd edition."

Antipatterns are an emerging and controversial new area in the patterns community. Where design patterns identify different types of procedures, designs, or code that worked in object-oriented projects, antipatterns target those common mistakes, defects, errors, or difficult people that can sink object-oriented projects and systems. Configuration Management (CM) is managing the evolution of a software project - managing the revisions or changes to the product after it is first released. This phase is important in a product's ongoing life-cycle because CM helps to ensure that all improvements are implemented in a timely and accurate fashion. In addition, CM ensures that product testing occurs and is accurately documented so that the test findings can be incorporated into improving the design of the product with the next version. This book continues where the first book on antipatterns by this author team left off. In the first book, they focused on the areas of design, architecture, and management, in other words - people issues. With this book, they focus on the area of Configuration Management and document over 20 antipatterns and ten design patterns that exist during this stage of a product's development.

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.

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.

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.

Originally specified in 1958, Lisp is the second-oldest high-level programming language in widespread use today; only Fortran is older (by one year). Like Fortran, Lisp has changed a great deal since its early days, and a number of dialects have existed over its history

PREFACE

This book has been produced primarily for people who enjoy games but would like to have the 'pleasure' of typing them in themselves. In this way it is possible to build up a good collection of programs for very little outlay. Entering programs from listings is also the best way to learn the syntax of BASIC and to see how various results can be obtained. Later as you develop your programming skills you will be able to adapt the programs to suit your own preferences. Finally it is hoped that you will be suitably inspired and experienced to be abk to write your own programs from scratch. Although this book can be a useful aid to learning it is not designed as a tutorial. If I had taken pages to tell you why and how each element of a program functioned then there would probably only be half as many listings! My aim and the aim of our merry band of programmers has been to ensure that each program is well worth the effort of typing in. In our efforts to ensure that the finished games are satisfactory machine code routines have been incorporated. The code is POKED into the memory from data and it will not be necessary to know about the wild code.

It is important to realise however that CBM BASIC, even with a little help from machine code, cannot equal a fully coded program. The compromise which has been adopted in this book is as far as it is possible to go without making each one totally machine code. In the final analysis however it is whether the game is 'playable' that matters and I hope you will agree that each game in this ollection is enjoyable and playable.

This book represents a great deal of hard work and long hours from a team of people. I am pleased to be able to record my appreciation to the following Mr Micro programmers: Issi, Greg, Bootsy, David and Evan who each contributed a great deal to the project. I am also grateful to our friends at Commodore for the loan of equipment and for their valuable technical assistance. The other important person to have worked on the book is my wife Val who took my handwritten input and produced the finished word processed output.

Finally I am grateful to Richard Miles of Collins who commissioned this book and who ensured that despite the many possible pitfalls of publishing it has reached you, the C 16 owner, for whom the entire exercise was undertaken.

This clear and comprehensive introduction to compilers and interpreters emphasises the practical side of the art. It moves gradually from the idea of a 'wedge' in the BBC computer's Operating System, to a simple interpreter, a simple graphics language, threaded interpretive languages (including FORTH) and, finally, a stand-alone compiler. Listings of the implementations are given. This book will give anyone with a good knowledge of assembly language the foundation on which to build an interpreter or compiler of their own.

Bruce Smith has written sixteen books on computing, fourteen of which have dealt with the BBC Computer range. He is currently technical editor of Acorn User magazine.

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.

Amazon Review:

Presents a step-by-step sequence that can be followed in designing a data base. Offers a comprehensive and balanced treatment of the three main data base methods: IDMS/R, ADABAS, and IMS, explaining the advantages and disadvantages of each. Text prepares the reader for each phase of the task by carefully explaining two major examples of data base installations. Text is not restricted to one software package or approach, and sections on the three main methods are written to be relatively independent of one another, so that the reader can consult just the section needed.
