Abstract / Notes

Icon is the programming language of choice for applications in the Humanities. An ideal option for those whose main interest or research area is the written word, Icon emphasizes proper programming principles; and at the same time, it strikes a reasonable balance between structure and freedom. It possesses excellent facilities for handling strings of characters; flexible structures such as lists, tables, and sets; and useful built-in sort capabilities. Icon programs are also highly portable.
This second edition of the book, originally published in 1990, has been thoroughly revised and updated to allow for the new developments in computing since that date. Two entirely new chapters, covering Unicode and the Text Encoding Initiative (TEI), have been added. To aid the learning process, actual programs are exemplified and analyzed to provide examples that readers can imitate or modify to apply to their own projects.
