Interface techniques between multiple different languages taught by examples—the only book of its kind!
Ideal for anyone programming in more than one language
Hands-on work with a wide range of languages and applications
Your practical guide to interfacing multiple programming languages.
Computer applications and their implementations become more complex and specialized by the day. Often, the best way to meet a particular challenge is to apply two or more programming languages to the task. The scarcity of useful information on how to get different languages to work together, though, makes this much easier said than done! To that end, topic expert Dr. Ying Bai wrote Applications Interface Programming Using Multiple Languages: A Windows Programmer's Guide—the first book to provide in-depth coverage of the most popular programming languages' interfaces and how to use them.
This hands-on, example-packed book walks you through everything you need to know about interfacing multiple languages in Windows, including combinations of C/C++ and Visual C++ 6.0; Visual Basic 6.0; MATLAB, MATLAB Compiler, and the MATLAB graphics and C/C++ math libraries; Smalltalk; VisualWorks; LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, Measurement Studio for Visual C++ and Measurement Studio for Visual Basic; Java 1.2 and 1.3; Perl; and more. Dr. Bai's practical approach gets you right into the programming—each chapter is taught using working code to solve real-world problems, and the source code on the accompanying CD-ROM makes it easy to experiment and adapt these examples to your own projects. Coverage also details the installation of software tools.
Step-by-step interfacing of C/C++ and Visual C++ 6.0; Visual Basic 6.0; MATLAB; Smalltalk; LabVIEW, LabWindows/CVI, and Measurement Studio; Java 1.2 and 1.3; Perl; and more!
Taught by practical, hands-on example—it's easy to learn the techniques and apply them to your own projects
CD-ROM provides source code of all examples; perfect for study and use in your own applications
Programmers, software engineers, college students, researchers, professors, and anyone who needs to use more than one programming language on a project need this indispensable book!
