Thank you Karl for link to a very nice book with excerpt. It must be a very good reading. One question though. This book is written in 2003. Assume that you have explored this book, do you think that there is anything missing in the book after 15 years which can possibly explain the myriad flow of software that has been developed ?

    It's true that we had some new languages in the last 15 years, but programing concepts are very stable, and languages often only vary on syntax, vocabulary and implementation.

    It's like civil engineering and architecture.

    You might see new revolutionary architecture, but the materials and statics don't change that often.

      What does that mean?

    "...Assume that you have explored this book..."

    I didn't yet, unfortunately. I just browsed through it a little bit and then decided to order it.

    " anything missing in the book after 15 years..."

    I don't know and hope not.

    I think this kind of book is more about the essentials - things that don't change very much for decades (or longer). LanX already pointed this out very good.

    What fascinated me is that this book seems to be written in a very understandable, friendly language. This is an art. Very seldom.

    Some further hints: Did you notice the plethora of accompanying material? I also tried to install Oz/Mozart on my older Mac. Was pain in the ass to be honest. No success until now (segfaults on start up, bla, bla).

    And unfortunately Mozart for the Mac comes with Aquamacs. I hate it.

    Credits/merits for the book/links go for LanX and Laurent_R.

    Best regards, Karl
