By Brian Harvey

This sequence is for individuals - adults and teens - who're attracted to machine programming simply because it really is enjoyable. the 3 volumes use the emblem programming language because the car for an exploration of machine technology from the point of view of symbolic computation and synthetic intelligence. emblem is a dialect of Lisp, a language utilized in the main complex learn tasks in desktop technological know-how, specially in man made intelligence. through the sequence, practical programming concepts (including better order features and recursion) are emphasised, yet conventional sequential programming is additionally used while appropriate.In the second one variation, the 1st volumes were rearranged in order that illustrative case reviews look with the innovations they reveal. quantity 1 encompasses a new bankruptcy approximately greater order services, and the recursion chapters were reorganized for larger readability. quantity 2 incorporates a new instructional bankruptcy approximately macros, an unique power of Berkeley brand, and new tasks. through the sequence, the bigger application examples were rewritten for better clarity by means of extra huge use of knowledge abstraction.

Example text

4. If the procedure is an operation, what is its output? If a command, what is its effect? Another example: “The command print has one input. The input can be any datum. ” Manipulating Words and Lists Logo provides several primitive operations for taking data apart and putting data together. Words come apart into characters, such as letters or digits or punctuation marks. (A character is not a third kind of datum. ) Lists come apart into whatever data are the members of the list. A sentence, which is a list of words, comes apart into words.

The fact that a list can have another list as a member makes lists very flexible as a way of grouping information. For example, the list [[cherry vanilla] mango [root beer swirl]] contains three members. The first and third members are themselves lists, while the second member is the word mango. A list like this can be represented using a tree diagram: [[cherry vanilla] mango [root beer swirl]] [cherry vanilla] cherry Words and Lists vanilla mango [root beer swirl] root beer swirl 19 This diagram has the name “tree” because it resembles an upside-down tree, with a trunk at the top and branches extending downward.

So you shouldn’t get discouraged or feel stupid if you don’t get very far, right now, in playing with Logo. It will be a few more chapters before you should expect to feel really confident about undertaking new projects of your own. But you won’t break anything by trying now. Go ahead, fool around! No Exercises 9 2 Procedures Logo is one of the most powerful programming languages around. In order to take advantage of that power, you must understand Logo’s central ideas: procedures and evaluation.
