Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Written from a programmer's perspective, this book introduces the SPARC assembly language to readers early on. Other introductory material encompasses making use of UNIX® tools (the m4 macro processor, the assembler, the gnu emacs editor, and the gdb debugger). Further coverage includes a formal definition of the von Neumann machine, its relationship to programmable calculators, and to the JAVA™ bytecode and JAVA virtual machine. This book's loyal audience has been anticipating a revision of a very successful book for this growing market. Not only is this book suitable for introductory computer architecture courses, but for programmers who will be programming SPARC architecture machine in languages such as C and C++.

  • Provides reader understanding of the complexity and cost of using various data and control structures in high-level languages
  • Includes the latest material on the new Ultra SPARC architecture
  • Frequent references to C and C++ language constructs and their translation into SPARC assembly language
  • Offers optional material on floating point, traps, memory management, and other architectures
  • Companion Website supplements the text with updates and code examples at http://www.prenhall.com/paul

Book News Annotation:

Introduces the SPARC assembly language from a programmer's perspective, and covers making use of UNIX tools, and the von Neumann machine and its relationship to programmable calculators and to the JAVA bytecode and JAVA virtual machine. Can be used by students in introductory computer architecture courses, and by those programming SPARC architecture machines in languages such as C and C++. This second edition offers more material on the new Ultra SPARC architecture, and on floating point, traps, and other architectures. The author teaches at the University of Pennsylvania in computer and information science.

About the Author

RICHARD P. PAUL received a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science from Stanford University. His career as an educator and researcher has spanned three decades, beginning with his development of the WAVE robot language. He was one of the first researchers to demonstrate the use of programmable robots for assembly. He went on to join the faculty at Purdue University as a professor of Electrical Engineering and the Ransburg Professor of Robotics. Dr. Paul currently teaches at the University of Pennsylvania in Computer and Information Science. His expertise extends his contributions into major U.S. robot manufacturers, researching the field of robot programming language development. He has served as one of the founding editors of the International Journal of Robotics Research, as well as a President of the IEEE Council on Robotics and Automation. This year Dr. Paul will become emeritus. His current research and development interests include time-delayed teleoperation and the development of the teleprogramming system.
