This book uses a functional programming language (F#) as a metalanguage to present all concepts and examples, and thus has an operational flavour, enabling practical experiments and exercises. It includes basic concepts such as abstract syntax, interpretation, stack machines, compilation, type checking, garbage collection, and real machine code. Also included are more advanced topics on polymorphic types, type inference using unification, co- and contravariant types, continuations, and backwards code generation with on-the-fly peephole optimization. This second edition includes two new chapters. One describes compilation and type checking of a full functional language, tying together the previous chapters. The other describes how to compile a C subset to real (x86) hardware, as a smooth extension of the previously presented compilers.The examples present several interpreters and compilers for toy languages, including compilers for a small but usable subset of C, abstract machines, a garbage collector, and ML-style polymorphic type inference. Each chapter has exercises. Programming Language Concepts covers practical construction of lexers and parsers, but not regular expressions, automata and grammars, which are well covered already. It discusses the design and technology of Java and C# to strengthen students’ understanding of these widely used languages.

Learn Programming Language Concepts instead of just Programming Languages! It will help you to think in a more powerful, abstract but solution-oriented way about the problems you have to solve every day as a Software Developer. Knowing Concepts is much more powerful than knowing a specific Programming Language. Being able to identify a Concept in a Programming Language not only helps writing code in a more powerful style, it also makes you think about a given problem in a more abstract way. Additionally, it aids you in recognizing that very same Concept in other Languages that you might once use, and thus helps you when learning new Languages. Modern Programming Languages keep coming up with more and more new Concepts that make writing software more efficient and less error prone. However, most of us still try to solve all tasks in that verbose style we've known for ages. This results in too much (boilerplate) work that takes too long to write and introduces too many nasty bugs. But we're doing all that although there are so many helpful Programming Language Concepts around these days. Smart people have worked out these tools for us, so we should benefit from them, in order to make our lives as Software Developers easier, our software better in terms of quality and maintainability and thus make our customers happier. This book tries to shed light on modern Programming Language Concepts. It won't teach you a specific Language. Instead it makes the Concepts clear that the powerful Programming Languages of today lay their foundation on and what these are beneficial for. Many code examples in arbitrary Programming Languages as well as many illustrating figures help to get the ideas across. Covered topics are for example: Closures, Currying, Algebraic Datatypes, Type Classes, Immutability, Macros, Monads, Coroutines, Continuations, Lazy Evaluation, Destructuring, plus a chapter about basics that lays the foundation for being able to understand advanced topics.

In programming courses, using the different syntax of multiple languages, such as C++, Java, PHP, and Python, for the same abstraction often confuses students new to computer science. Introduction to Programming Languages separates programming language concepts from the restraints of multiple language syntax by discussing the concepts at an abstract level. Designed for a one-semester undergraduate course, this classroom-tested book teaches the principles of programming language design and implementation. It presents: Common features of programming languages at an abstract level rather than a comparative level The implementation model and behavior of programming paradigms at abstract levels so that students understand the power and limitations of programming paradigms Language constructs at a paradigm level A holistic view of programming language design and behavior To make the book self-contained, the author introduces the necessary concepts of data structures and discrete structures from the perspective of programming language theory. The text covers classical topics, such as syntax and semantics, imperative programming, program structures, information exchange between subprograms, object-oriented programming, logic programming, and functional programming. It also explores newer topics, including dependency analysis, communicating sequential processes, concurrent programming constructs, web and multimedia programming, event-based programming, agent-based programming, synchronous languages, high-productivity programming on massive parallel computers, models for mobile computing, and much more. Along with problems and further reading in each chapter, the book includes in-depth examples and case studies using various languages that help students understand syntax in practical contexts.

The current text provides a clear introduction to Computer Science concepts in a programming environment. It is designed as suitable use in freshman- or introductory level coursework in CS and provides the fundamental concepts as well as abstract theorems for solving computational problems. The Python language serves as a medium for illustrating and demonstrating the concepts.

Programming Languages for MIS: Concepts and Practice supplies a synopsis of the major computer programming languages, including C++, HTML, JavaScript, CSS, VB.NET, C#.NET, ASP.NET, PHP (with MySQL), XML (with XSLT, DTD, and XML Schema), and SQL. Ideal for undergraduate students in IS and IT programs, this textbook and its previous versions have been used in the authors’ classes for the past 15 years. Focused on web application development, the book considers client-side computing, server-side computing, and database applications. It emphasizes programming techniques, including structured programming, object-oriented programming, client-side programming, server-side programming, and graphical user interface. Introduces the basics of computer languages along with the key characteristics of all procedural computer languages Covers C++ and the fundamental concepts of the two programming paradigms: function-oriented and object-oriented Considers HTML, JavaScript, and CSS for web page development Presents VB.NET for graphical user interface development Introduces PHP, a popular open source programming language, and explains the use of the MySQL database in PHP Discusses XML and its companion languages, including XSTL, DTD, and XML Schema With this book, students learn the concepts shared by all computer languages as well as the unique features of each language. This self-contained text includes exercise questions, project requirements, report formats, and operational manuals of programming environments. A test bank and answers to exercise questions are also available upon qualified course adoption. This book supplies professors with the opportunity to structure a course consisting of two distinct modules: the teaching module and the project module. The teaching module supplies an overview of representative computer languages. The project module provides students with the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with the various computer languages through projects.
