Format: Hardcover
Explains character traits that are ideal for a maintenance programmer such as flexibility, broad background, patience, self-motivation, responsibility, humility, innovation, and historian. Compares and contrasts the styles used for programming in languages such as assembly, Fortran, COBOL, and ALGOL. Enumerates tools for software development and proposes a "supercompiler" and "programmer's workbench". These concepts are similar to the modern interactive development environment (IDE). Excellent discussion of preventing maintenance using techniques such as modularity, clustering, program structure, data structure, parameterization, data communication, defensive programming, programming standards, and documentation. Defines the content and structure of good internal documentation for use in the maintenance phase of the life cycle. This outstanding book is still relevant and will remain relevant.
