Programming Language Concepts (Undergraduate Topics in Computer Science)

By Peter Sestoft

Programming Language Concepts makes use of a sensible programming language (F#) because the metalanguage during which to offer all options and examples, and hence has an operational flavour, permitting useful experiments and routines. It contains uncomplicated ideas akin to summary syntax, interpretation, stack machines, compilation, variety checking, and rubbish assortment suggestions, in addition to the extra complicated issues on polymorphic kinds, variety inference utilizing unification, co- and contravariant varieties, continuations, and backwards code iteration with on-the-fly peephole optimization.

Programming Language Concepts covers sensible development of lexers and parsers, yet no longer general expressions, automata and grammars, that are good coated in different places. It throws gentle at the layout and expertise of Java and C# to reinforce scholars’ knowing of those commonly used languages.

The examples current a number of interpreters and compilers for toy languages, together with a compiler for a small yet usable subset of C, numerous summary machines, a rubbish collector, and ML-style polymorphic variety inference. each one bankruptcy has routines in response to such examples.

Programming Erlang: Software for a Concurrent World (Pragmatic Programmers)

A multi-user video game, site, cloud software, or networked database may have millions of clients all interacting while. you wish a strong, industrial-strength instrument to deal with the particularly challenging difficulties inherent in parallel, concurrent environments. you wish Erlang. during this moment variation of the bestselling Programming Erlang, you will the best way to write parallel courses that scale easily on multicore systems.

Using Erlang, you will be stunned at how effortless it turns into to house parallel difficulties, and what sort of swifter and extra successfully your courses run. that is simply because Erlang makes use of sets of parallel processes-not a unmarried sequential procedure, as present in such a lot programming languages.

Joe Armstrong, author of Erlang, introduces this robust language in small steps, providing you with an entire evaluation of Erlang and the way to take advantage of it in universal situations. you are going to commence with sequential programming, stream to parallel programming and dealing with blunders in parallel courses, and discover ways to paintings expectantly with allotted programming and the traditional Erlang/Open Telecom Platform (OTP) frameworks.

You desire no prior wisdom of useful or parallel programming. The chapters are jam-packed with hands-on, real-world instructional examples and insider suggestions and recommendation, and end with workouts for either starting and complicated users.

The moment variation has been largely rewritten. New to this version are seven chapters protecting the newest Erlang beneficial properties: maps, the sort method and the Dialyzer, WebSockets, programming idioms, and a brand new stand-alone execution atmosphere. you will write courses that dynamically discover and proper blunders, and that may be upgraded with out preventing the method. there is additionally assurance of rebar (the de facto Erlang construct system), and knowledge on tips on how to proportion and use Erlang tasks on github, illustrated with examples from cowboy and bitcask.

Erlang will switch your view of the area, and of the way you program.
