This book is organized into three parts, separated by major milestones in gaining programming knowledge. Part 1 shows how to apply basic concepts of programming. It goes through the details of writing programs using freely available editor and compiler software. It shows how to store data in variables for use in calculations, and how to produce nice-looking output. These chapters teach all that is needed to create simple interactive programs that gather input, perform calculations based on the input, and display output using calculated results. Part 2 adds elements of logic to the simple programs of part 1. Ways are presented for making programs selectively use different sets of instructions, based on circumstances. Ways to get a program to repeat itself are also presented, allowing things to be done more than once without duplicating the steps. These chapters teach what is needed to create more sophisticated programs with branching and looping logic, such as would be required for computer games and almost every other useful program. Part 3 introduces the powerful concept of single variables that can store multiple values all at the same time. Array variables can store multiple values of the same type, and are suitable for dealing with lists, such as lists of test scores, high temperatures, or names of students. Object variables can store multiple values of related information, and are suitable for dealing with data records, such as student accounts with names, IDs, and addresses. Chapters 13-15 introduce advanced applications of arrays and objects, for the purpose of first exposure to some advanced computer science concepts, but primarily to provide an opportunity to apply the language elements learned in parts 1 and 2.
Edited by Andrew Noble and Patrick Scott Hogg. The Canongate Burns is the most comprehensive and challenging edition of the poems and songs of Robert Burns ever published. Drawing on extensive scholarship and the poet’s own inimitable letters, this definitive edition offers a wealth of information on Burns’s life and times, the hardship of his early days, his political beliefs, his hatred of injustice and his fate as a writer too often sentimentalised by biographers, critics and well-meaning enthusiasts. The poems are presented in the order of their first appearance, giving further insights into the reception of Burns’s work and the guarded relationship he had both with his readers and his own fame. We see Burns as a radical figure in a British as well as a Scottish context, the peer of Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats and Byron in the revolutionary and repressive world of the 1790s. With its inclusion of recently attributed poems, explanatory notes and extensive Scots glosses, The Canongate Burns offers vitally fresh insights into the irreverent spirit and the democratic convictions which illuminate the work of Scotland’s most famous poet. ‘A magnificent and definitive work of scholarship. A thousand pages long, it provides not only a glossary and a context for the poems, but also a textual and historical note for each poem and song.’ Colm Toibin, Independent ‘A very fine edition, and the long introduction, which sets out to clear the tangled banks, is alone worth the cover price.’ Andrew O’Hagan, Scotsman ‘Scholarly and comprehensive.’ Sunday Telegraph
