Addison-Wesley is pleased to offer this specially-priced update of Elliot Koffman and Frank Friedman's Fortran text. Assuming no prior knowledge of computers or programming, the authors teach effective problem-solving and program-design techniques. The text emphasizes a software engineering approach to program design and carefully applies a five-step problem-solving approach: problem specification, analysis, design, implementation, and testing/verification. Koffman and Friedman provide thorough coverage of Fortran 77, with special sections on Fortran 90, and the techniques learned serve as a solid foundation for future programming regardless of the language used. New Features "On to C" Chapter. This chapter provides a gentle introduction to C programming. Students learn C based on how they learned to program in Fortran. This new chapter replaces Chapters 11 and 12 in previous editions. Updated Chapter 1. The Introduction to Computing chapter has been updated to reflect recent developments in industry. 020159062Xb04762001
