This book covers the language of PS-algol, and presents the techniques needed to support persistent objects in a procedural language. Covering the main features of PS-algol, including its syntax, types and control structures, the first part of the book looks at PS-algol orthogonal treatment of maps, first class functions and persistence. The latter half contains comprehensive coverage of implementation techniques for the heap and the persistent store. The book argues that persistence presents a new programming paradigm that unifies all levels of data storage on a computer.
