9780863802751: J - The Natural Language for Analytic Computing (Robotics and Mechatronics Series)

Remarkable development in the evolution of computer languages. Approaches J in easy steps with computing examples where the conciseness and algorithmic content of the language can be exploited. Practical value in rapid algorithm development. Brings a new and significant way of using a computer to the attention of scientists, software personnel and researchers whose work it could impact. Presents both philosophical and academic challenges. No published books on this subject at present. J is a computer language which first emerged in about 1990, and which is remarkable for the way in which it allows technical instructions for computing to be expressed with great conciseness using constructs and syntax which closely mirror those of natural language. The software concerned is available for free download, thereby giving both professionals and general users access to all the facilities of the language. J is also a fully integrated computing systems with development environment, library utilities and interfaces to a full range of mainstream computing applications such as graphics and data-bases. With J, which only uses the symbols available on every keyboard, a much closer bridge has been constructed between computer and human language than ever before.

Review:

J is published to enhance its availability to the computing community and as a service to those keen advocates of J who are already committed..I am confident that your enthusiasm will be richly rewarded by your careful study of this text.
PROFESSOR DEREK WILSON, SERIES EDITOR
..In general, I found the book more interesting as it progressed, but even the beginning was thought provoking... it flows forward in an organized manner and includes a number of topics that illustrate solving larger problem...-each section illustrates the rich ideas of J and hence there is a lot packed into the book---I think it is a valuable resource for J useres who want an introduciton to, or refresher on, the J language.
