"This book provides students with a working understanding of the essential concepts of programming languages. Most of these essentials relate to the semantics, or meaning, of program elements, and the text uses interpreters (short programs that directly analyze an abstract representation of the program text) to express the semantics of many essential language elements. The book provides views of programming languages using varying levels of abstraction, maintaining a connection between the high-level and low-level views. The complete Scheme code for all the interpreters and analyzers in the book can be found online through The MIT Press Web site." "For this new edition, each chapter has been revised and new exercises have been added. Additions have been made to the text, including new chapters on modules and continuation-passing style. Essentials of Programming Languages can be used for both graduate and undergraduate courses, and for continuing education courses for programmers."--Jacket.
