Art of Computer Programming

在参考阅览室的一个角落里躺着一套 Art of Computer Programming 的中译本,第一次是 Henry 给我引进的,这本书真的很有名气。

  1. “The Bible of all fundamental algorithms and the work that taught many of today’s software developers most of what they know about computer programming.” – “Byte”, September 1995.
  2. “I can’t begin to tell you how many pleasurable hours of study and recreation they have afforded me! I
    have pored over them in cars, restaurants, at work, at home… and even at a Little League game when my son wasn’t in the line-up.” – Charles Long.
  3. If you think you’re a really good programmer… read [Knuth’s] “Art of Computer Programming”… You should definitely send me a resume if you can read the whole thing.” – Bill Gates.
  4. “It’s always a pleasure when a problem is hard enough that you have to get the Knuths off the shelf. I find that merely opening one has a very useful terrorizing effect on computers.” – Jonathan Laventhol.

这么多名人都推荐的程序书怎么能不读呢,况且第一卷对数学的要求很高,很有挑战性。不过时间太少了,还没 Henry 看得多,这本书还有一个吸引我的,就是它的序,不过说成阅读指南更好。开学的时候,我去图书馆抄了一份,今天花了点时间把它画出来了,蛮有意思的。
