A++ has been developed in 2002 in the context of 'Programmierung pur'
[Undiluted Programming] (ISBN 3-87820-108-7) with the purpose to serve as a
learning instrument rather than as a programming language used
to solve practical problems.
A++ is supposed to be an efficient tool to
become familiar with the core of
programming and with programming patterns that can be applied in other
languages needed to face the real world.
Programming in A++ students learn
This book does not only introduce A++ as a language but also
covers its implementation in Perl and C including an introduction
to these languages using A++ itself.
- that programming problems can be solved using powerful patterns
derived from ARS (Abstraction, Reference and Synthesis), patterns
that comprise the three major programming paradigms in use today.
- Readers also learn that neither the knowledge of the syntax
of a programming language nor the familiarity with all the
primitive functions of a language implementation makes up
the art of programming.
