Concepts of Programming Languages (10th Edition) by Robert W. Sebesta

By Robert W. Sebesta

For undergraduate scholars in desktop technological know-how and computing device Programming courses.

Now in its 10th version, Concepts of Programming Languages introduces scholars to the most constructs of up to date programming languages and offers the instruments had to significantly overview present and destiny programming languages. Readers achieve a great starting place for realizing the basic options of programming languages throughout the author's presentation of layout concerns for numerous language constructs, the exam of the layout offerings for those constructs in probably the most universal languages, and demanding comparability of the layout choices. moreover, Sebesta strives to organize the reader for the learn of compiler layout via delivering an in-depth dialogue of programming language constructions, offering a proper approach to describing syntax, and introducing methods to lexical and syntactic analysis.

Object-oriented programming developed along with a language that supported its concepts: Smalltalk (Goldberg and Robson, 1989). Although Smalltalk never became as widely used as many other languages, support for object-oriented programming is now part of most popular imperative languages, including Ada 95 (ARM, 1995), Java, C++, and C#. , 2010), as well as logic programming in Prolog++ (Moss, 1994). Language support for object-oriented programming is discussed in detail in Chapter 12. Procedure-oriented programming is, in a sense, the opposite of dataoriented programming.

Although some simple early languages of the 1960s (APL, SNOBOL, and LISP) were purely interpreted, by the 1980s, the approach was rarely used on high-level languages. However, in recent years, pure interpretation has made a significant comeback with some Web scripting languages, such as JavaScript and PHP, which are now widely used. 4. 3 Implementation Methods 29 Hybrid Implementation Systems Some language implementation systems are a compromise between compilers and pure interpreters; they translate high-level language programs to an intermediate language designed to allow easy interpretation.

This type of compiler would be used in situations where execution speed of the translated program is far less important than compilation speed. An example of such a situation is a computing laboratory for beginning programmers. In most commercial and industrial situations, execution speed is more important than compilation speed, so optimization is routinely desirable. Because many kinds of optimization are difficult to do on machine language, most optimization is done on the intermediate code.
