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.
"...highlights the interaction between programming language design & implementation...explains how a compiler works, what it does to a source program, & why...also explains how to choose an appropriate language for a given application."
"This book is the best and most complete on this topic that I've seen." —Klaus Ostermann, Darmstadt University of Technology
