From C to Modula-2--and Back, Bridging the Language GapBook - 1987
The two important computer languages C and Modula-2 are presented and compared in this book and explicit conclusions are drawn from the two. Languages are presented according to program development, features and examples in order to help readers determine which one is best for them. Issues such as the physical structure of programs, software engineering and tools, costs and portability are discussed and the features of each language are covered in parallel form inviting easy comparison. Special sections focus on types and costs of applications and on the organization of large systems, modularity and maintenance. Well written examples illustrate good software engineering underscored with the realities of production programming. Case studies that are computer- and operating-dependent are written for the IBM PC. Appendices include syntax diagrams, libraries, compilers and tools.
