Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
This book is extremely valuable to those hoping to understand and reuse Knuth's classic typesetting algorithms. It contains the every detail needed for the implementation. Each section has a number associated with the source code. Besides, it can also serve as an excellent example of a large project for computer science students. One can understand better "the art of computer programming" after reading this book. Of course, you should get prepared to learn Knuth's Pascal/Web sytle language instead of the popular C/Java language.
