Douglas Crockford starts by looking at the fundamentals: names, numbers, booleans, characters, and bottom values. JavaScript’s number type is shown to be faulty and limiting, but then Crockford shows how to repair those problems. He then moves on to data structures and functions, exploring the underlying mechanisms and then uses higher order functions to achieve class-free object oriented programming. The book also looks at eventual programming, testing, and purity, all the while looking at the requirements of The Next Language. Most of our languages are deeply rooted in the paradigm that produced FORTRAN. Crockford attacks those roots, liberating us to consider the next paradigm.He also presents a strawman language and develops a complete transpiler to implement it. The book is deep, dense, full of code, and has moments when it is intentionally funny.

Learn CMake through a series of task-based recipes that provide you with practical, simple, and ready-to-use CMake solutions for your codeKey FeaturesLearn to configure, build, test, and package software written in C, C++, and FortranProgress from simple to advanced tasks with examples tested on Linux, macOS, and WindowsManage code complexity and library dependencies with reusable CMake building blocksBook Description

CMake is cross-platform, open-source software for managing the build process in a portable fashion. This book features a collection of recipes and building blocks with tips and techniques for working with CMake, CTest, CPack, and CDash.

CMake Cookbook includes real-world examples in the form of recipes that cover different ways to structure, configure, build, and test small- to large-scale code projects. You will learn to use CMake's command-line tools and master modern CMake practices for configuring, building, and testing binaries and libraries. With this book, you will be able to work with external libraries and structure your own projects in a modular and reusable way. You will be well-equipped to generate native build scripts for Linux, MacOS, and Windows, simplify and refactor projects using CMake, and port projects to CMake.

What you will learnConfigure, build, test, and install code projects using CMakeDetect operating systems, processors, libraries, files, and programs for conditional compilationIncrease the portability of your codeRefactor a large codebase into modules with the help of CMakeBuild multi-language projectsKnow where and how to tweak CMake configuration files written by somebody elsePackage projects for distributionPort projects to CMakeWho this book is for

If you are a software developer keen to manage build systems using CMake or would like to understand and modify CMake code written by others, this book is for you. A basic knowledge of C++, C, or Fortran is required to understand the topics covered in this book.

Programmers run into parsing problems all the time. Whether it's a data format like JSON, a network protocol like SMTP, a server configuration file for Apache, a PostScript/PDF file, or a simple spreadsheet macro language--ANTLR v4 and this book will demystify the process. ANTLR v4 has been rewritten from scratch to make it easier than ever to build parsers and the language applications built on top. This completely rewritten new edition of the bestselling Definitive ANTLR Reference shows you how to take advantage of these new features.

Build your own languages with ANTLR v4, using ANTLR's new advanced parsing technology. In this book, you'll learn how ANTLR automatically builds a data structure representing the input (parse tree) and generates code that can walk the tree (visitor). You can use that combination to implement data readers, language interpreters, and translators.

You'll start by learning how to identify grammar patterns in language reference manuals and then slowly start building increasingly complex grammars. Next, you'll build applications based upon those grammars by walking the automatically generated parse trees. Then you'll tackle some nasty language problems by parsing files containing more than one language (such as XML, Java, and Javadoc). You'll also see how to take absolute control over parsing by embedding Java actions into the grammar.

You'll learn directly from well-known parsing expert Terence Parr, the ANTLR creator and project lead. You'll master ANTLR grammar construction and learn how to build language tools using the built-in parse tree visitor mechanism. The book teaches using real-world examples and shows you how to use ANTLR to build such things as a data file reader, a JSON to XML translator, an R parser, and a Java class->interface extractor. This book is your ticket to becoming a parsing guru!

What You Need:

ANTLR 4.0 and above. Java development tools. Ant build system optional(needed for building ANTLR from source)
Incorporate the assembly language routines in your high level language applicationsAbout This BookUnderstand the Assembly programming concepts and the benefits of examining the AL codes generated from high level languagesLearn to incorporate the assembly language routines in your high level language applicationsUnderstand how a CPU works when programming in high level languagesWho This Book Is For

This book is for developers who would like to learn about Assembly language. Prior programming knowledge of C and C++ is assumed.

What You Will LearnObtain deeper understanding of the underlying platform Understand binary arithmetic and logic operationsCreate elegant and efficient code in Assembly languageUnderstand how to link Assembly code to outer worldObtain in-depth understanding of relevant internal mechanisms of Intel CPUWrite stable, efficient and elegant patches for running processesIn Detail

The Assembly language is the lowest level human readable programming language on any platform. Knowing the way things are on the Assembly level will help developers design their code in a much more elegant and efficient way. It may be produced by compiling source code from a high-level programming language (such as C/C++) but can also be written from scratch. Assembly code can be converted to machine code using an assembler.

The first section of the book starts with setting up the development environment on Windows and Linux, mentioning most common toolchains. The reader is led through the basic structure of CPU and memory, and is presented the most important Assembly instructions through examples for both Windows and Linux, 32 and 64 bits. Then the reader would understand how high level languages are translated into Assembly and then compiled into object code. Finally we will cover patching existing code, either legacy code without sources or a running code in same or remote process.

Style and approach

This book takes a step-by-step, detailed approach to Comprehensively learning Assembly Programming.
