Chapter 2
Fundamentals of Programming Languages

The typescript for chapter 2 is provided in AutomatedComposition02.pdf.

Chapter 2 covers the programming environment which was current at SUNY/Buffalo in the days before personal computers and Integrated Development Environments. It also covers the basic features of programming languages: Data elements, flow of control (conditional blocks and loops), and subroutines. The sections on interpreters and pseudo-compilers express my dislike for both things.
