This book is intended to show you how to develop serious applications programs for use on your Amstrad CPC 464 or 664. David Lawrence emphasises throughout the importance of good program planning and design, and illustrates the principal points with a host of examples.

The book begins with a look at the advantages of modular programming, which makes subsequent checking and debugging on your routines much easier. There follow chapters of debugging, proper methods of inputting information, string handling techniques, error trapping, storage and retrieval, data structures, sorting and searching.

At each stage there are handy hints and tips which suggest new ways of tackling problems - how to save greater volumes of data in your Amstrad's memory, or how to sort a long list of items efficiently. These make the book a handy ready reference to have available whenever you are tackling a new and potentially difficult program.
