Summary
"The book identifies and explains the essential concepts underlying the design and use of programming languages showing how the major languages handle issues such as declarations, types, data abstraction, information hiding, modularity and the support given to the development of reliable software systems. The emphasis is on the similarities between languages rather than their differences and the book covers modern widely-used object-oriented and procedural languages such as C, C++, Java, Pascal (including its implementation in Delphi), Ada 95, and Perl with special chapters being devoted to functional and logic languages."--BOOK JACKET
