Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0632015713, Paperback)The primary purpose of this book, a title in the Computer Science Texts series, is to serve as a manual on the two popular system-programming languages BCPL and C. These languages are closely connected, both having descended from another language, never fully implemented, called CPL. The book is not intended as an introductory programming manual but it does describe both languages fully, and includes a system description of C under UNIX. A few simple programs are provided to illustrate the major features of the two languages. There is a syntax for each language in the form of a set of railroad' diagrams. The second purpose of the book is to provide material for a study of the genealogy of the languages. To this end it gives a brief overview of CPL and of B, which was the precursor of C.
