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.
