This Modula-2 text not only gives an elementary introduction to Modula-2, but it also covers advanced material suitable for use on a data structures course. There is material for students who want to interact with computers at a low level or who intend to use Modula-2 to construct operating systems. Other features of this text include: end-of-chapter programming examples and exercises graded by degree of difficulty; coverage of ACM-recommended style and documentation, stepwise refinement of programs and data structures, string processing, internal sorting, data structures, recursion, and more advanced topics such as simulation, dynamic data structures, hashing techniques, and information hiding. Parallel examples of Pascal and Modula-2 throughout the text help Pascal trained students learn Modula-2 (students who have not studied Pascal will find sufficient material in the text to learn Modula-2). A Modula-2 command index and syntax chart provides students with additional guidance. This book should be of interest to degree and diploma students on introductory courses in Modula-2 more
