Assembly Language Programming on the BBC and Acorn Electron

By Coats, R. B.

UK: Edward Arnold, 1985. Soft cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 7" x 9.75. P/B 281 pages, condition is very good. This book can be used with both the BBC computer and the Acorn Electron computer. It will appeal to two categories of reader: those teaching assembly language programming as part of a formal course on computer studies - and their students; those owners of BBC or Acorn Electron computers who want to extend their knowledge beyond BASICinto assembly language. Learning to program in assembly language will give the reader an understanding of the internal workings of the computer, particularly the 6502 microprocessor. Some previous knowledge of BASIC is required, to the extent of being able to write simple programs, to edit these programs and to load and save them using cassette tape or disk. Introducing BBC BASIC by R. B. Coats deals with these topics at the appropriate level. Assembly language concepts are introduced gradually. Each short unit of the text focusses on one aspect of assembly language programming and consists of explanatory text, test questions and practical exercises. These exercises are an essential component of the book, encouraging the reader to learn by trying things out on the computer. A special program called TRACER has been developed by the author for use with this book. A copy of TRACER on cassette tape can be purchased from the publishers. Alternatively, the program can be typed into the computer from the listings given in the book.

Linear Programming

By Hadley, G

USA: Addison-Wesley Publishing, 1965. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. 6" x 8.5. h/b 520 pages, condition is very good, minor edge wear to the DJ. A presentation of the theory, computational techniques, and applications of linear programming,The text gives a fairly complete and rigorous development of the subject. Some familiarity with linear algebra and convex sets is assumed. The necessary mathematical background is covered briefly in one chapter. The reader completely unfamiliar with linear algebra will probably find it desirable to study simultaneously some text such as the author's Linear Algebra. In fact, the latter book was designed expressly to precede the present text. A great deal of material not found in other books on the subject is presented here. This includes the primaldual algorithm; the decomposition principle; generalized machine assignment problems; the transhipment problem; the network flow algorithm for transportation problems and a novel development of the theory of transportation problems. Separate chapters are devoted to applications of linear programming to industrial problems and to problems in economic theory. Another strong point of the text is the large number of problems included for solution. The problems deal with both theoretical and computational aspects of the subject.

Professional Issues in Software Engineering

By Bott, Frank; Coleman, A.; Eaton, J.; Rowland, D.

Taylor & Francis, 1998. 3rd Edition . Soft cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 6" x 9.25. P/B 328 pages, condition is very good, minor edge wear. This successful book provides up-to-date coverage of an area that is now perceived as an essential element of a software engineer's education - the legal, professional and commercial context in which they must work. The past few years have seen a rapidly growing appreciation of the importance to software engineers of issues beyond mere technical knowledge. These include: the commercial and financial framework the effect of new technology on employment the safety and reliability of computer systems intellectual property rights in software computer contracts computer misuse The context in which professional software engineers operate changes as quickly as technology. This new edition has been comprehensively revised to reflect these changes. The major changes have been the development of the Internet, the new Data Protection Act, and recent developments in the legal status of software engineers in the USA. All these are covered and the first chapter has been substantially extended to cover ethical issues and codes of conduct. This book is equally valuable to practitioners and students alike. It brings together the expertise and experience of academics in software engineering, law, industrial relations, and health and safety. The book explains the central principles and issues in each field and shows how they apply to software engineering. All the authors are at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth. Frank Bott is Head of the Department of Computer Science and a member of the BCS Board of Moderators. Allison Coleman is a senior lecturer in the Law Department and has written extensively on intellectual property law. Jack Eaton lectures in the School of Management and Business Studies, where he specialises in industrial relations and human resource management. Diane Rowland has a PhD in semiconductor electronics and was once one of HM Inspectors of Factories. She is now also a senior lecturer in the Law Department.

Fourth Generation Languages Under DOS and UNIX

By Joseph St John Bate & Dinesh B Vadhia

BSP Professional Books, 1987. Soft cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 6" x 9.25. P/B 200 pages, condition is very good. All organisations are facing a serious software crisis which is costing them money and lost opportunities. The book shows how this software development crisis can be overcome by using fourth generation languages, a solution which many organisations are beginning to accept. Traditional DP using third generation languages (COBOL, C, Pascal etc.) results in 60 per cent of programming staff time being spent maintaining existing applications. Fourth generation languages, however, can resolve this state of affairs; but only if new approaches to developing applications are followed, as set out in this book. This book will be welcomed by both the end user who requires flexible applications in a very short time (4GLs can increase productivity by a factor of 6000 per cent) and the over-worked DP department.
