9780471519287: Writing Scientific Programs Under the OS/2 Presentation Manager

Provided here is a simple introduction to writing scientific programs using the OS/2 presentation manager. This book shows you how to write programs in the C language and is the first to illustrate how to plot data on hard copy devices such as dot matrix printers and pen plotters. Since the C language may be somewhat hard to read for some beginners, a chapter has been included which introduces the C language and includes simple definitions to make C more readable. Discussions comprehensively cover all important areas, including: how to display images such as those obtained from scanning microscopy techniques, frame grabbers, and image capture devices; how multiple thread of execution can be used within your program so that several tasks can run at the same time; the methods of communicating between these threads; how to acquire data from acquisition cards; an introduction to the Intel 80286 assembly language; and how to make calls to OS/2's serial device driver showing how to send and receive characters simply. In addition, all program examples are complete working programs which are fully discussed so that novices can easily understand their purpose.

Book Description John Wiley and Sons Ltd, United States, 1990. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. This book describes the scientific applications of OS/2, IBM s operating system for advanced PCs, especially PS/2s. The system overcomes most objections to DOS by allowing access to up to 16 megabytes of memory - and offers true multi-tasking. The book covers lab data acquisition and display of lab data and has numerous examples from working programs. The reader is taught how to write scientific applications in the C language, which take advantage of special Presentation Manager features like drop-down menus, message and dialog boxes, and the device-independent graphical programming interface. The book includes such latest techniques of PM programming as how to use multiple threads of execution within a program to run several tasks simultaneously, how to use graphical features unique to the PS/2 PM environment, how to acquire data from data acquisition cards using IOPL instructions, how to write device drivers using C or Assembler, and how to capture, display and plot data plots.
