The most comprehensive programming language textbook available today, Programming Language Pragmatics is distinguished and acclaimed for its integrated treatment of language design and implementation. Its emphasis on integration is supported by a central focus on programming language design; together, they provide readers with a solid foundation for understanding the most important issues driving software development today. The fourth edition is updated with new material and numerous updates, including added content on interpretation; expanded coverage of OCaml; new chapters devoted to type systems and composite types; reworked coverage of overloading, coercion, and polymorphism; and new examples featuring the ARM and x86 64-bit architectures. * New material on interpretation* Expanded coverage of OCaml* New chapters devoted to type systems and composite types* Updated and re-worked coverage of overloading, coercion, and polymorphism* New examples featuring the ARM and x86 64-bit architectures

"This book is a key resource for any computer science student and is certainly faithful to its title - Programming Language Pragmatics. The updated third edition of this popular book delivers the key concepts of programming languages and their implementation in a concise and intuitive way, illustrated with clear explanations and examples. In addition to the coverage of traditional language topics, Scott's book delves into the sometimes obscure, but essential, details of programming artifacts. The descriptions of language theory, along with concrete implementations of how to realise them, are invariably presented in a language-agnostic fashion. And therein lies the strength of this book: whilst the main examples have been updated (with C and Intel x86 replacing Pascal and MIPS), it provides an organisational framework for learning new languages, irrespective of the paradigm. Programming Language Pragmatics provides a more accessible introduction to many of the key topics than the classic Compilers: Principles, Techniques and Tools by Aho et al. (a.k.a. the 'Dragon Book') and provides a deep appreciation of the design and implementation issues of modern languages. The material is aimed at an undergraduate computer science level, but is also suitable for self-study. Topics are often independent of previously presented material, making it easier to pick and choose areas for study. This is also supported by additional in-depth material and advanced discussion topics on the companion CD.. In summary, this new edition provides both students and professionals alike a solid understanding of the most important issues driving software development today - an essential purchase for any serious programmer or computer scientist!"--BCS.comAbout the Author:
