Book Description

1 Jan 1990 0201175290 978-0201175295
Building on the success of the first edition, this comprehensive book explores how real-time programming techniques are used in applications, such as robotics, factory automation and control. It is critical for these systems that the software is developed reliably and is capable of responding in 'real time' to changes in its environment. This book is a significant contribution to the development of this discipline and particular emphasis is placed on language primitives and their role in the production of safe and dependable software.   This book will be invaluable to Final Year and Masters students in Computer Science and related disciplines, as well as professional software engineers and real-time systems engineers.

The book is the Bible for Real-time Programming persons. It gives a very nice description related to three different programming languages, C++, Ada and Occam 2. It gives all fundmental issues about real-time programming.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good material about RTS, especially for Ada 95 users 8 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on
This book deals general issues and technical information when you design a software for an embedded system. In addition, the authors consider several real-time languages such as Ada 95, occam2 and C-POSIX interfaces instead of commercial RTOS. In particular, this book can be a good programming guide for Ada 95 users. The authors give comprehensive example source codes for suggested algorithms in Ada 95 languages. I plan to buy another book written by the authors called 'Concurrency in Ada'. Finally, if there is one flaw, many examples are given only in the text. I hope the next edition should contain much more figures to help the readers' easy understanding.
