Scripting with Objects

Object-Oriented scripting with Perl and Python Scripting languages are becoming increasingly important for software development. These higher-level languages, with their built-in easy-to-use data structures are convenient for programmers to use as "glue" languages for assembling multi-language applications and for quick prototyping of software architectures. Scripting languages are also used extensively in Web-based applications. Based on the same overall philosophy that made Programming with Objects such a wide success, Scripting with Objects takes a novel dual-language approach to learning advanced scripting with Perl and Python, the dominant languages of the genre. This method of comparing basic syntax and writing application-level scripts is designed to give readers a more comprehensive and expansive perspective on the subject. Beginning with an overview of the importance of scripting languages—and how they differ from mainstream systems programming languages—the book explores: Regular expressions for string processing The notion of a class in Perl and Python Inheritance and polymorphism in Perl and Python Handling exceptions Abstract classes and methods in Perl and Python Weak references for memory management Scripting for graphical user interfaces Multithreaded scripting Scripting for network programming Interacting with databases Processing XML with Perl and Python This book serves as an excellent textbook for a one-semester undergraduate course on advanced scripting in which the students have some prior experience using Perl and Python, or for a two-semester course for students who will be experiencing scripting for the first time. Scripting with Objects is also an ideal resource for industry professionals who are making the transition from Perl to Python, or vice versa.

Everyday billions of people wake up thinking that a god is watching over them as they freely make choices in their lives. Dr. Alan Kosciol, noted neurobiologist, once believed that to be true. But years of research have turned his notion of gods, faith and free will upside down. In this novel, Dr. Kosciol embarks on a visiting lecture series where he debates the concepts of spirituality and free choice. Returning to his alma mater, Alan finds himself face to face with Robert, his deeply religious brother, and Lori, a lost, but not forgotten, love. All three are united through a series of events that centers on a bioterrorist action that has potentially devastating consequences. However, an underlying theme revolving around the age-old debate of nature versus nurture, and of free will versus predestination, seeps into every page. A Bay Breeze is not simply another novel about human behavior. From the first page, the reader will begin to question not only the characters' actions, but their own beliefs about gods, good and evil, and predestination. One cannot leave this experience without examining their own foundational beliefs in a god . and wondering if they really have a free will to choose, or are they simply slaves to their own biochemistry.

Your essential comparative approach to learning C++ and Java Programming with Objects: A Comparative Presentation of Object-Oriented Programming with C++ and Java, a comparative presentation of object-oriented programming with two of the most popular programming languages of today, teaches vital skills and techniques for the Internet age. Based on highly successful courses taught by the author, this book answers the need for a comprehensive educational program on the subject of object-oriented programming. In a clear and accessible format, the author compares and contrasts both languages, from basic language constructs to how both languages are used in application-level programming, such as graphics programming, network programming, and database programming. Since both C++ and Java were born out of the same language, C, learning these two languages together has several distinct advantages: * Because they have much in common at the level of basic language structures, learning C++ and Java together saves time and facilitates the mastery of each * Learning by contrast and comparison can be more efficient and enjoyable, allowing readers access to the strengths and weaknesses of both languages * Learning to write a program in one language that corresponds to a given program in the other language enables students to tackle more difficult projects in either language * Comparing similar concepts in the two languages leads to a deeper understanding of the concepts in both Roughly the first half of the text is devoted to basic language issues. More advanced topics are detailed in the second half, including programming of graphical user interfaces, multithreading, network programming, and database programming. Designed as a text for educational programs in advanced programming and as a reference for professionals implementing Web- and Internet-based applications, Programming with Objects: A Comparative Presentation of Object-Oriented Programming with C++ and Java is also recommended for programmers familiar with either language who wish to expand their programming skills.

Somebody Scream!

Rap Music's Rise to Prominence in the Aftershock of Black Power

For many African Americans of a certain demographic the sixties and seventies were the golden age of political movements. The Civil Rights movement segued into the Black Power movement which begat the Black Arts movement. Fast forward to 1979 and the release of Sugarhill Gang's "Rapper's Delight." With the onset of the Reagan years, we begin to see the unraveling of many of the advances fought for in the previous decades. Much of this occurred in the absence of credible, long-term leadership in the black community. Young blacks disillusioned with politics and feeling society no longer cared or looked out for their concerns started rapping with each other about their plight, becoming their own leaders on the battlefield of culture and birthing Hip-Hop in the process. In Somebody Scream, Marcus Reeves explores hip-hop music and its politics. Looking at ten artists that have impacted rap—from Run-DMC (Black Pop in a B-Boy Stance) to Eminem (Vanilla Nice)—and puts their music and celebrity in a larger socio-political context. In doing so, he tells the story of hip hop's rise from New York-based musical form to commercial music revolution to unifying expression for a post-black power generation.
