This is a classic book about basic algorithms and data structures. It's a must have book for understanding behind-the-scenes logic of standard libraries in modern programming languages. Should be on every programmer's read list.

The language chosen, Oberon, was never popular. But simply translating keywords and operators turns the book's code into almost valid C, Java or (probably most easily) Delphi. After all, the syntax of all these languages has a common ancestor, Algol.
The author has made this book publicly available in PDF form at the ETH Oberon Home Page.
It is the single book I learnt most from when I was a freshman studying Computer Science at my local University (when Pascal was already declining, I'm not so old ;-). I wish more recent books were as good as this one, but I have not found a single book so focused and, at the same time, so broad in scope as this one.
Wirth covers programming fundamentals (including recursion), many sorting algorithms, data structures (from simple data collections to B-trees and hashing), and basic compiler technology. That is, four books into one (and, surprisingly, this is not a hefty tome.)
This is one of those books that is ideally suited for youngsters who want to become good programmers who are not only technically sound, but have programming DEPTH, which is very important.
