This book introduces computer programming to a beginner using the programming language C. The version of C used is the one standardised by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI C). C has rapidly gained users due to its efficiency, rich data structure, variety of operators and affinity to UNIX operating system. C is a difficult language to learn if it is not methodically approached. Our attempt has been to introduce the basic aspects of C to enable the student to quickly start writing C programs and postpone more difficult features of C to later chapters. The methodology of presentation closely follows the one used by the author in his popular book on PASCAL programming. Those who know PASCAL will find it very easy to learn C using this book.
Computer Programming: Made Simple, New Edition focuses on the processes, principles, methodologies, techniques, and approaches involved in computer programming. The publication first takes a look at the introduction to computer structure, backing store, input, and output devices, and logic and flowcharting. Discussions focus on flowcharting, file organization, sequencing, and security, magnetic disc devices, optical character recognition, keyboard, encoders, optical mark reading, input and output unit, and backing store. The manuscript then ponders on operating systems, data and numbers, introduction to COBOL, and word types and constants. The text examines arithmetic statements, MULTIPLY an...
Computer Programming: A Mixed Language Approach describes computer programming from a mixed language perspective. More specifically, it examines how to make effective use of the hardware and software aspects of the total system using the mixed languages that are a composite of the absolute machine languages and the more facile problem-oriented languages. In addition to the absolute machine language required by the computer "hardware" and the problem-oriented language provided by the "software" of symbolic assembly programs and compilers, a third kind of programming language is considered, namely, the symbolic machine language. Comprised of nine chapters, this book illustrates mixed language ...
This book is intended to present basic concepts on the most popular computer programming language C. It has been tried to present the fundamental concepts on Computer Programming with C simply and straightly for the undergrad students and self-learners. More than 155 examples (codes with sample input-output) are included to clarify the topics.
This is a revised and enlarged version of the author's book which received wide acclamations in its earlier three editions. It provides a lucid and in-depth introduction to the programming language Fortran 77 which is widely used by scientists and engineers.The fourth edition is completely revised chapterwise and also minor corrections incorporated. A new standard for Fortran called Fortran 90 was introduced in early 90s and compilers for this version of Fortran were sold in early 1995 by computer vendors. All Fortran 77 programs will run without change with Fortran 90 compilers; however some aspects of Fortran 77 have been declared obsolete and will not run on future Fortran compilers_these are explained in this revised edition. An appendix consolidates these features. Fortran 90 is introduced in a new chapter which summarises all its features.

Takes a unique systems approach to programming and architecture of the VAX Using the VAX as a detailed example, the first half of this book offers a complete course in assembly language programming. The second describes higher-level systems issues in computer architecture. Highlights include the VAX assembler and debugger, other modern architectures such as RISCs, multiprocessing and parallel computing, microprogramming, caches and translation buffers, and an appendix on the Berkeley UNIX assembler.
