Books by K. N. King
Comments from Reviewers
"I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this book to anyone who programmed in Pascal-like languages and wished to learn Modula-2." Richard E. Pattis, University of Washington
"Highly recommended as a Modula-2 reference." Stan Osborne, San Francisco State University
"This book will be an excellent reference work for Modula-2." Dr. Albert L. Crawford, Southern Illinois University, Carbondale
"Kim King's book leaves me both dejected and thankfulgloomy that now I can't write the first Modula-2 reference to explain the language's ideas simply, carefully, and completely; grateful that now I don't have to. King clearly has worked to satisfy his own curiosity along with the reader's; he has put in the effort it takes to explain the purpose, and not just the syntax, of Modula-2's features. His book is an outstanding, exceptionally conscientious piece of work." Doug Cooper, author of Oh! Pascal!
About the Book
Modula-2: A Complete Guide is both a comprehensive Modula-2 reference and a text for learning Modula-2. The only background required of the reader is experience writing programs in a structured, high-level language such as Pascal, PL/l, Ada, or C.
The text covers all of Modula-2's features in detail, with particular emphasis on the language's advanced features, including modules, low-level features, coroutines, and interrupt handling. Two entire chapters are devoted to modules, the key feature of Modula-2. Numerous examplesincluding a string-handling module and a character set moduleillustrate the proper use of modules. Object-oriented design is introduced and illustrated by a detailed example. Low-level examples include a screen module, a device driver for the IBM PC keyboard, and an interrupt-driven scheduler.
