An important book by the creators of the Concurrent C programming language. Concurrent C is an extension to the very popular C language, which is used to create programs that run on a wide variety of computers, from microcomputers to mainframes, and is a key part of the UNIX(TM) operating system. Concurrent C describes extensions to the language that allow one program to conveniently control many tasks at once. Especially important for the language and the book is the further extension known as Concurrent C++, which merges the object-oriented C++ language (B. Stroustrup, The C++ Programming Language, 1986), itself an extension of C, with Concurrent C. This could very well be the language of the future since it provides the utility of C with state-of-the-art high-level functionality. The authors start with an introduction to Concurrent C, provide sections on large examples, Concurrent C++, concurrent programming, and discrete event simulation, and end with appendixes containing a reference manual, design and implementation issues, and a comparison with the Ada programming language. Highly recommended for technical libraries. -P. Galvin, Yale University
