From the Back Cover:

  • Interface techniques between multiple different languages taught by examples―the only book of its kind!
  • Ideal for anyone programming in more than one language
  • Hands-on work with a wide range of languages and applications

Your practical guide to interfacing multiple programming languages.

Computer applications and their implementations become more complex and specialized by the day. Often, the best way to meet a particular challenge is to apply two or more programming languages to the task. The scarcity of useful information on how to get different languages to work together, though, makes this much easier said than done! To that end, topic expert Dr. Ying Bai wrote Applications Interface Programming Using Multiple Languages: A Windows Programmer's Guide―the first book to provide in-depth coverage of the most popular programming languages' interfaces and how to use them.

This hands-on, example-packed book walks you through everything you need to know about interfacing multiple languages in Windows, including combinations of C/C++ and Visual C++ 6.0; Visual Basic 6.0; MATLAB, MATLAB Compiler, and the MATLAB graphics and C/C++ math libraries; Smalltalk; VisualWorks; LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, Measurement Studio for Visual C++ and Measurement Studio for Visual Basic; Java 1.2 and 1.3; Perl; and more. Dr. Bai's practical approach gets you right into the programming―each chapter is taught using working code to solve real-world problems, and the source code on the accompanying CD-ROM makes it easy to experiment and adapt these examples to your own projects. Coverage also details the installation of software tools.

  • Step-by-step interfacing of C/C++ and Visual C++ 6.0; Visual Basic 6.0; MATLAB; Smalltalk; LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, and Measurement Studio; Java 1.2 and 1.3; Perl; and more!
  • Taught by practical, hands-on example―it's easy to learn the techniques and apply them to your own projects
  • CD-ROM provides source code of all examples; perfect for study and use in your own applications

Programmers, software engineers, college students, researchers, professors, and anyone who needs to use more than one programming language on a project need this indispensable book!


This book addresses the need for interfaces, or bridges, between the multiple popular programming languages. With the development of the advanced computer controls and applications, the single programming language sometimes has a limitation for today's complicated projects. Programmers will frequently be working with multiple programming languages at a time and, currently, do not have a "bridge" language to tie things together. They spend countless work hours either converting code or working simultaneously on 2 (or more) different languages at once. To solve this problem and to utilize the advantages of multiple languages, an interface is needed to set a bridge between the different languages. The programming languages covered in this book include: C/C++ and Visual C++ 6.0, Visual Basic 6.0, Java 1.2 and 1.3, Perl, LabView, LabWindows/CVI and Measurement Studio, Matlab, Matlab C/C++ Math library, Matlab compiler and Matlab Graphic library, and SmallTalk. Practical and hands-on programming examples are provided with each project in the book. All program examples, which are stored in the attached CD-ROM, have been tested, debugged and applied in the actual projects.

Readers can easily select the examples to suit their special needs.
