This sequence is for people--adults and teenagers--who have an interest in desktop programming simply because it's enjoyable. the 3 volumes use the brand programming language because the motor vehicle for an exploration of laptop technological know-how from the viewpoint of symbolic computation and synthetic intelligence. brand is a dialect of Lisp, a language utilized in the main complicated learn initiatives in machine technology, particularly in man made intelligence. through the sequence, useful programming suggestions (including greater order features and recursion) are emphasised, yet conventional sequential programming can be used while acceptable. within the moment variation, the 1st volumes were rearranged in order that illustrative case reviews look with the innovations they display. quantity 1 incorporates a new bankruptcy approximately better order features, and the recursion chapters were reorganized for larger readability. quantity 2 features a new educational bankruptcy approximately macros, an unique power of Berkeley brand, and new initiatives. in the course of the sequence, the bigger software examples were rewritten for better clarity by means of extra large use of information abstraction. quantity 1 Symbolic Computing, is addressed to a reader who has used desktops and needs to benefit the tips at the back of them. Symbolic computing is the manipulation of phrases and sentences, by contrast either to the photos most folks go together with brand and to the numerical computation with which extra conventional languages equivalent to Pascal and C++ are so much cozy. This quantity is widely known for its transparent and thorough presentation of recursion, a key proposal in desktop technological know-how that different texts deal with as arcane and tough. the emblem courses in those books and the author's loose Berkeley emblem interpreter can be found through the net or on diskette.

The output from thing is whatever datum is in the container. The technical name for what I’ve been calling a “container” is a variable. Every variable has a name and a thing (or value ). The name and the thing are both parts of the variable. ” Person itself is a word, which is different from a variable. When I type the instruction greet "Brian 40 Chapter 3 Variables the Logo interpreter starts with the first word on the line, greet. As usual, Logo takes this to be the name of a procedure. Logo discovers that greet requires one input, so it continues to the next thing on the line.
The effect of po is to print out the definition(s) of the procedure(s) named by the input. Here is an example: ? ] end ? Unlike to, but like all other Logo procedures, po does evaluate its input. That’s why the word hello must be quoted in this example. In a procedure definition the line starting to is called the title line. The lines containing instructions are, naturally, called instruction lines. We won’t have many occasions to talk about the line containing only the word end, but just in case, we’ll call it the end line.
Writing Your Own Procedures 31 You can also examine the procedure itself by asking Logo to print it out. The command po (for Print Out) takes one input, a word or a list. The input is either the name of a procedure (if a word) or a list of names of procedures. The effect of po is to print out the definition(s) of the procedure(s) named by the input. Here is an example: ? ] end ? Unlike to, but like all other Logo procedures, po does evaluate its input. That’s why the word hello must be quoted in this example.
