from the back cover: "...is a thorough introduction to one of the most talked-aboiut programming languages developed in the last decade. Highly structured, Modula-2 allows the creation of modules, independent program parts that can isolate common program functions and be used to build libraries of programming routines. Modula-2's structure and access to system-level facilities are invaluable for systems-level programming. Designed by niklaus Wirth to be more fully functional than his earlier language, Pascal, Modula-2 is available for the IBM PC, Apple II, Macintosh, VAX, and other computers. Focusing on the features of Modula-2 that are used mst by programmers, Edward Joyce gives experienced programmer and enthusiastic novices a clear overview of the complete language. Thorough explanations of each command are supplemented by numerous program expamples that allow you quickly to get a feel for the power and structure of Modula-2. In addition, you'll find: -a quick primer for Pascal programmers -self-study problems in each chapter -numerous program examples: some complete programs, others useful programming tricks -detailed appendices containing a full reference guide to the language and useful program modules -a comparison of Pascal and Modula-2"
