Languages in common use (other languages in Programmer's Supplement, volume 2)

The C Programming Language - Reference Manual

Official statement of the syntax of C. Should be supplemented by ``The C Programming Language,'' B.W. Kernighan and D.M. Ritchie, Prentice-Hall, 1978, that contains a tutorial introduction and many examples.

A Portable Fortran 77 Compiler

A revised version of the document which originally appeared in Volume 2b of the Bell Labs documentation; this version reflects the ongoing work at Berkeley.

Introduction to the f77 I/O Library

A description of the revised input/output library for Fortran 77, reflecting work carried out at Berkeley.

Berkeley Pascal User's Manual

An implementation of this language popular for learning to program.

Berkeley Vax/UNIX Assembler Reference Manual

The usage and syntax of the assembler; useful mostly by compiler writers.

General Reference

Berkeley Software Architecture Manual (4.3 Edition)

A concise and terse description of the system call interface provided in Berkeley Unix, as revised for 4.3BSD. This will never be a best seller.

An Introductory 4.3BSD Interprocess Communication Tutorial

How to write programs that use the Interprocess Communication Facilities of 4.3BSD.

An Advanced 4.3BSD Interprocess Communication Tutorial

The reference document (with some examples) for the Interprocess Communication Facilities of 4.3BSD.

Programming Tools

Lint, A C Program Checker

Checks C programs for syntax errors, type violations, portability problems, and a variety of probable errors.

A Tutorial Introduction to ADB

How to debug programs using the adb debugger. For hints on the use of ADB for debugging the Unix kernel, see ``Using ADB to Debug the Kernel'', SMM:3

Debugging with dbx

How to debug programs without having to know much about machine language.

Make - A Program for Maintaining Computer Programs

Indispensable tool for making sure large programs are properly compiled with minimal effort.

An Introduction to the Revision Control System

RCS is a user-contributed tool for working together with other people without stepping on each other's toes. An alternative to sccs for controlling software changes.

An Introduction to the Source Code Control System

A useful introductory article for those users with installations licensed for SCCS.

YACC: Yet Another Compiler-Compiler

Converts a BNF specification of a language and semantic actions written in C into a compiler for that language.

LEX - A Lexical Analyzer Generator

Creates a recognizer for a set of regular expressions: each regular expression can be followed by arbitrary C code to be executed upon finding the regular expression.

The M4 Macro Processor

M4 is a macro processor useful in its own right and as a front-end for C, Ratfor, and Cobol.

Programming Libraries

Screen Updating and Cursor Movement Optimization

Describes the curses package, an aid for writing screen-oriented, terminal-independent programs.
