Description

The third edition of this best-selling text has been revised to present a more problem oriented approach to learning Pascal, without substantially changing the original popular style of previous editions. With additional material on Turbo Pascal extensions to the standard Pascal, including binary files and graphics, it continues to provide an introduction which is as suitable for the programming novice as for those familiar with other computer languages.

Readership

First time learners of Pascal - undergraduates in mathematics, applied mathematics, physics, engineering and computing. Also of value to academics in other scientific disciplines who need to learn some basic programming.
