C.4 Programming Languages

A number of important programming languages were first developed under Unix. Note again the books written by Brian Kernighan.

  1. The C Programming Language , Brian W. Kernighan and Dennis M. Ritchie, Prentice-Hall, Englewood Cliffs, NJ, USA, 1978. ISBN: 0-13-110163-3.

    The original "bible" on C. Dennis Ritchie invented C and is one of the two "fathers" of Unix. This edition is out-of-print.

  6. The Java Programming Language , Ken Arnold and James Gosling. Addison Wesley, Reading, MA, USA, 1997. ISBN: 0-201-31006-6.

    This book is intended for learning Java, by two of the designers of the language.

  7. The Java Language Specification , James Gosling, Bill Joy, Guy L. Steele Jr. Addison Wesley, Reading, MA, USA, 1996. ISBN: 0-201-63451-1.

  8. The AWK Programming Language , Alfred V. Aho and Brian W. Kernighan and Peter J. Weinberger, Addison Wesley, Reading, MA, USA, 1987. ISBN: 0-201-07981-X.

    The original definition for the awk programming language. Extremely worthwhile. See http://cm.bell-labs.com/cm/cs/awkbook .

  9. Effective AWK Programming , Arnold Robbins, Specialized Systems Consultants, Seattle, WA, USA, 1997. ISBN: 1-57831-000-8.

    A more tutorial treatment of awk that covers the POSIX standard for awk . It also serves as the user's guide for gawk . See http://www.ssc.com/ssc/eap/ .
