Overview

The innovative approach of the first edition of Programming Language Pragmatics provided students with an integrated view of programming language design and implementation, while offering a solid teaching text on timely language topics in a rigorous yet accessible style.

The new edition carries on these distinctive features as well as the signature tradition of illustrating the most recent developments in programming language design with a variety of modern programming languages.

  • Addresses the most recent developments in programming language design, including C99, C#, and Java 5
  • Introduces and discusses scripting languages throughout the book as well as in an entire new chapter
  • Includes a comprehensive chapter on concurrency, with coverage of the new Java concurrency package (JSR 166) and the comparable mechanisms in C#
  • Updates many sections and topics, including iterators, exceptions, polymorphism, templates/generics, scope rules and declaration ordering, separate compilation, garbage collection, and threads and synchronization
  • Highlights the interaction and tradeoffs inherent in language design and language implementation decisions with over 100 "Design and Implementation" call-out boxes
  • Adds end-of-chapter "Exploration" exercises—open-ended, research-type activities
  • Provides review questions after sections for quick self-assessment
  • Includes over 800 numbered examples to help the reader quickly cross-reference and access content
