I’m taking a programming languages theory class this semester and I was pondering which book to buy to accompany the class. The teachers gives a few book recommendations, but none of them are obligatory. I’m only counting on buying one for now and I’d like to get a book that will stand for the ages.
Class website: http://www.iro.umontreal.ca/~monnier/2035/ (in french)
I’m also tempted by this one: Programming Language Pragmatics
I’ve been recommended TAPL before, but seeing as this isnt a class thats strictly about type systems, I’d like to get a more general one and read TAPL later.
