The field of systems programming primarily grew out of the efforts of many programmers and managers whose creative energy went into producing practical, utilitarian systems programs needed by the rapidly growing computer industry. Programming was practiced as an art where each programmer invented his own solutions to problems with little guidance beyond that provided by his immediate associates. In 1968, the late Ascher Opler, then at IBM, recognized that it was necessary to bring programming knowledge together in a form that would be accessible to all systems programmers. Surveying the state of the art, he decided that enough useful material existed to justify a significant publication effort. On his recommendation, IBM decided to sponsor The Systems Programming Series as a long term project to collect, organize, and publish principles and techniques that would have lasting value throughout the industry. The Series consists of an open-ended collection of text-reference books. The Series meets the needs of the novice, the experienced programmer, and the computer scientist.
