Summary

Thinking Low-Level, Writing High-Level, the second volume in the landmark Write Great Code series by Randall Hyde, covers high-level programming languages (such as Swift and Java) as well as code generation on 64-bit CPUsARM, the Java Virtual Machine, and the Microsoft Common Runtime.

Today's programming languages offer productivity and portability, but also make it easy to write sloppy code that isn't optimized for a compiler. Thinking Low-Level, Writing High-Level will teach you to craft source code that results in good machine code once it's run through a compiler.

You'll learn:
    How to analyze the output of a compiler to verify that your code generates good machine code
    The types of machine code statements that compilers generate for common control structures, so you can choose the best statements when writing HLL code
    Enough assembly language to read compiler output
    How compilers convert various constant and variable objects into machine data

With an understanding of how compilers work, you'll be able to write source code that they can translate into elegant machine code.

NEW TO THIS EDITION, COVERAGE OF:
    Programming languages like Swift and Java
    Code generation on modern 64-bit CPUs
    ARM processors on mobile phones and tablets
    Stack-based architectures like the Java Virtual Machine
    Modern language systems like the Microsoft Common Language Runtime
