Kenneth Louden and Kenneth Lambert's new edition of PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES: PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE, 3E gives advanced undergraduate students an overview of programming languages through general principles combined with details about many modern languages. Major languages used in this edition include C, C++, Smalltalk, Java, Ada, ML, Haskell, Scheme, and Prolog; many other languages are discussed more briefly. The text also contains extensive coverage of implementation issues, the theoretical foundations of programming languages, and a large number of exercises, making it the perfect bridge to compiler courses and to the theoretical study of programming languages.
