9780201107456: Human Factors and Typography for More Readable Programs

This book shows how increased attention to human factors and typographical principles can enhance the readability of computer programs and their documentation. It illustrates such enhancement by suggesting a new style for C documentation. Any language could have been used as an example, and similar factors and principles would apply. Specialists in human factors and computer typography, as well as programmers and software engineers, will find this book a rich source of interesting ideas on how computer programs might be made easier to read and maintain, and how program documentation might be made more accessible to users.
