This textbook is an introduction to the design and writing of
computer programs. It leads the reader through all the stages of
program construction from the original specifications through to
the final program. The formal verification of intermediate versions
of the program is studied in considerable detail. The authors show
how, given the formal specification of a program, data structure
and program structure diagrams are drawn and then converted into a
procedural program in a program design language (PDL). They
demonstrate the conversion of PDL into a variety of real
programming languages including Pascal, FORTRAN, COBOL, and
Assembler. The book also includes chapters on abstract data types,
analysing existing programs, and a small case study. First-year
undergraduates in computer science and graduates taking courses in
computing will find this a comprehensive introduction to program
