With more than 200 example scripts and applications, JSL Companion: Applications of the JMPÂ® Scripting Language, Second Edition provides scripters with a resource that takes them beyond the basics of the JMP Scripting Language (JSL) and serves as a companion to writing applications. Avid JSL scripters Theresa L. Utlaut, Georgia Z. Morgan, and Kevin C. Anderson have tapped their expertise to write a task-oriented approach that allows readers to learn scripting by immersion.
This edition builds on the earlier edition with substantial new content for scripting enhanced JMP features, such as Graph Builder, new query methods, and enriched display box functionality. A new chapter is dedicated to creating applications with the Add-In Builder and Application Builder. The âKnow Your Toolsâ topic has been expanded, including a section on how to use the JMP Debugger.
The book begins with an introduction that is intended for the JSL novice and quickly moves into the building blocks of JSL, which include input and output, working with data tables, script-writing essentials, and JMP data structures. The next chapters provide the foundation for building an application and focus on creating reports, communicating with users, customizing displays, and writing flexible scripts. The final chapters include building and deploying applications and helpful tips on planning scripts, debugging, and improving performance.
A comprehensive introduction to type systems and programming languages.
A type system is a syntactic method for automatically checking the absence of certain erroneous behaviors by classifying program phrases according to the kinds of values they compute. The study of type systemsâand of programming languages from a type-theoretic perspectiveâhas important applications in software engineering, language design, high-performance compilers, and security.
This text provides a comprehensive introduction both to type systems in computer science and to the basic theory of programming languages. The approach is pragmatic and operational; each new concept is motivated by programming examples and the more theoretical sections are driven by the needs of implementations. Each chapter is accompanied by numerous exercises and solutions, as well as a running implementation, available via the Web. Dependencies between chapters are explicitly identified, allowing readers to choose a variety of paths through the material.
The core topics include the untyped lambda-calculus, simple type systems, type reconstruction, universal and existential polymorphism, subtyping, bounded quantification, recursive types, kinds, and type operators. Extended case studies develop a variety of approaches to modeling the features of object-oriented languages.
A new edition of a textbook that provides students with a deep, working understanding of the essential concepts of programming languages, completely revised, with significant new material.
This book provides students with a deep, working understanding of the essential concepts of programming languages. Most of these essentials relate to the semantics, or meaning, of program elements, and the text uses interpreters (short programs that directly analyze an abstract representation of the program text) to express the semantics of many essential language elements in a way that is both clear and executable. The approach is both analytical and hands-on. The book provides views of programming languages using widely varying levels of abstraction, maintaining a clear connection between the high-level and low-level views. Exercises are a vital part of the text and are scattered throughout; the text explains the key concepts, and the exercises explore alternative designs and other issues. The complete Scheme code for all the interpreters and analyzers in the book can be found online through The MIT Press web site. For this new edition, each chapter has been revised and many new exercises have been added. Significant additions have been made to the text, including completely new chapters on modules and continuation-passing style. Essentials of Programming Languages can be used for both graduate and undergraduate courses, and for continuing education courses for programmers.

Evaluating the Fundamentals of Computer Programming Languages
Concepts of Computer Programming Languages introduces students to the fundamental concepts of computer programming languages and provides them with the tools necessary to evaluate contemporary and future languages. An in-depth discussion of programming language structures, such as syntax and lexical and syntactic analysis, also prepares readers to study compiler design.
The Eleventh Edition maintains an up-to-date discussion on the topic with the removal of outdated languages such as Ada and Fortran. The addition of relevant new topics and examples such as reflection and exception handling in Python and Ruby add to the currency of the text. Through a critical analysis of design issues of various program languages, Concepts of Computer Programming Languages teaches programmers the essential differences between computing with specific languages.
The new C++11 standard allows programmers to express ideas more clearly, simply, and directly, and to write faster, more efficient code. Bjarne Stroustrup, the designer and original implementer of C++, has reorganized, extended, and completely rewritten his definitive reference and tutorial for programmers who want to use C++ most effectively.
The C++ Programming Language, Fourth Edition, delivers meticulous, richly explained, and integrated coverage of the entire languageâits facilities, abstraction mechanisms, standard libraries, and key design techniques. Throughout, Stroustrup presents concise, âpure C++11â examples, which have been carefully crafted to clarify both usage and program design. To promote deeper understanding, the author provides extensive cross-references, both within the book and to the ISO standard.
New C++11 coverage includes
Topics addressed in this comprehensive book include
This fourth edition makes C++11 thoroughly accessible to programmers moving from C++98 or other languages, while introducing insights and techniques that even cutting-edge C++11 programmers will find indispensable.
This is a hardcover version of the Fourth Edition. Content in this hardcover and the paperback version is identical.
This book features an enhanced, layflat binding, which allows the book to stay open more easily when placed on a flat surface. This special binding methodânoticeable by a small space inside the spineâalso increases durability.
