Comparative Programming Languages: Generalizing the Programming Function
This book focuses on using programming to solve problems in business information processing, rather than on compiler writing and language design. This book combats the problem of language dependence by showing how programming languages achieve the same results using different syntactic constructs. Covers the programming languages COBOL, MODULA-2, C, Pascal, Smalltalk and Prolog, and discusses programming paradigms - imperative, functional, rule-oriented, object-oriented, access, dataflow and constraint.
The hardcover originally published in 1991 by Prentice Hall is now out of print.
