Re: Mathematica Programmer vs. Programming in Mathematica


"Programming in Mathematica" is the standard book for Mathematica
Programming, the "Mathematica Programmer" collects mainly Roman Maeders
articles in "The Mathematica Journal" and include interesting stuff like
his polyhedron code. But it focus *not* on the programming techniques ...

Both books are excelent ...

The classes.m package is designed to show, that object oriented
programming can be done in Mathematica.  But nobody would consider it
as more than an example that even a wonderfull functional programming
language can be misused for nonsense like "object oriented programming".
