You have to study a programming language each year, as steered via The Pragmatic Programmer. but when one in line with yr is nice, how approximately Seven Languages in Seven Weeks? during this publication you'll get a hands-on journey of Clojure, Haskell, Io, Prolog, Scala, Erlang, and Ruby. even if your favourite language is on that checklist, you'll expand your point of view of programming by way of interpreting those languages side-by-side. You'll research whatever new from each one, and better of all, you'll methods to research a language quickly.

Ruby, Io, Prolog, Scala, Erlang, Clojure, Haskell. With Seven Languages in Seven Weeks, via Bruce A. Tate, you'll transcend the syntax-and past the 20-minute educational you'll locate somewhere on-line. This ebook has an audacious aim: to give a significant exploration of 7 languages inside of a unmarried publication. instead of function a whole reference or set up advisor, Seven Languages hits what's crucial and certain approximately every one language. additionally, this strategy might help train you ways to grok new languages.

For each one language, you'll clear up a nontrivial challenge, utilizing ideas that sing their own praises the language's most vital gains. because the ebook proceeds, you'll notice the strengths and weaknesses of the languages, whereas dissecting the method of studying languages quickly--for instance, discovering the typing and programming types, selection buildings, and the way you have interaction with them.

Among this staff of 7, you'll discover the main serious programming versions of our time. study the dynamic typing that makes Ruby, Python, and Perl so versatile and compelling. comprehend the underlying prototype process that's on the middle of JavaScript. See how development matching in Prolog formed the advance of Scala and Erlang. detect how natural sensible programming in Haskell isn't like the Lisp relations of languages, together with Clojure.

Explore the concurrency suggestions which are fast turning into the spine of a brand new iteration of web purposes. the best way to use Erlang's let-it-crash philosophy for construction fault-tolerant platforms. comprehend the actor version that drives concurrency layout in Io and Scala. find out how Clojure makes use of versioning to unravel one of the most tricky concurrency problems.

It's all right here, multi functional position. Use the strategies from one language to discover inventive strategies in another-or find a language which can develop into considered one of your favorites.

GtkBin is another abstract class that allows a widget to contain only one child. It allows multiple widgets to have this functionality without the need for reproduction of code. You can cast an object as a GtkBin with GTK_BIN(). • GtkWindow is the standard window object you saw in Listing 2-1. You can use GTK_WINDOW() to cast an object. fm Page 19 Wednesday, March 28, 2007 7:35 PM CHAPTER 2 ■ YOUR FIRST GTK+ APPLICATIONS Every widget in this book will use a similar widget hierarchy. It is useful to have the API documentation handy, so you can reference the hierarchy of the widgets you are using.

We will only have a use for GdkEventKey, which we can use instead of GdkEvent in the callback function. Since the event is already cast as GdkEventKey, we will have direct access to only the elements in that structure.

It was chosen because one of the design goals of Pango is to support all languages by creating a fully internationalized font-rendering system. On Linux, Pango uses the FreeType and fontconfig libraries for client-side fonts. The thing that makes Pango stand out from the crowd is that it supports a vast array of languages. Virtually all of the world’s major scripts are supported, which makes rendering internationalized text a nonissue in your applications. All text within Pango is represented internally with UTF-8 encoding.
