Message to Professors

    If you are at an accredited college, university, or other school in the U.S. or Canada, you have permission to use any of these materials in your own “mash-up”, as hand-outs, or as a whole book (and you can change the order, delete stuff, add stuff, and mdify stuff) as long as it is for your own classroom use. I do need you to include the copyright notice on anything you use.

    I do not know the accreditation rules for other nations, so am limiting the above permission in other nations to government schools, colleges, and universities in any nation. Write a letter and ask if you are at a non-government school in another nation. I do need you to include the copyright notice on anything you use.

    Also, accredited schools, colleges, and universities in the U.S. and Canada and government schools in any other nation may print this book (with modifications) and provide it to students either free or at actual printing costs. I do need you to include the copyright notice (including website URL) on anything you use.

    I also ask that you provide a copy of any variant versions of this book you create (you can send a CD-R to Milo, PO Box 1361, Tustin, CA, 92781, USA).

    Feel free to donate additional materials (you will be credited for your contributions).

    And please provide feedback on any recommendations, suggestions, complaints, corections, etc. to improve the quality of this free text book for your class use.

Message to Self-Taught Students

    It is almost always better to learn from a qualty university or college.

    With the current dismantlement of quality higher education for the middle class and poor, many prospective students are forced to learn on their own.

    If you must self-teach, please seek out other talented individuals and form a study group.

    If you must seek underground education, such as reading a free college text book on-line, please use the knowledge you gain for positive purposes, such as when internet-savvy youth used the internet to start and finish the non-violent overthrow of the Mubarak government in Egypt. Note, I strongly recommend that the people of Egypt be rewarded by returning the prime meridian of the world to the center of the Great Library at Alexandria, and that Egypt, Brazil, Germany, Japan, and India be added to the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council with veto power. That would be a just international reward for skilled positive use of the internet for widespread public good.

    Please avoid any destructive programming. Seriously consider the moral and ethical consequences of weapons of mass destruction.

explanation and goal of this book

    The goal of this book is to provide a free downloadable text that can be used in college and high school computer programming classes.

    According to the Los Angeles Times college text books average $120 each (late 2006) and the major book publishers are still jacking up the prices. According to the LA Times, many poor students are barred from higher education (even though they have financial aid or a scholarship) because they simply can’t afford the price of text books, which can be more than a thousand dollars a semester/quarter.

    The major book publishers put out new (more expensive) editions of text books every three years. It just happens to be that three years is the amount of time for a text book to saturate the used text book market and cut into sales of new books. The book publishers claim that this is mere coincidence with the timing of their new editions and that they only publish new editions when they need to make improvements on the existing text. it is mere coincidence that these necessary improvements happen to exactly match the sales cycle for every text book they publish!

    It will take me time to get a computer programming text book written, but I am a skilled writer, as proven by this highly popular website OSdata.com, a website on computer operating systems that is used by more than 300 universities and colleges around the world and that has been cited by the U.S. Navy in the paperwork justifying switching to Linux for all mission critical computers and by the government of the Federal Republic of Germany in paperwork justifying their switch to Linux.

    I do actively encourage students, teachers, and professional programmers to provide useful feedback and criticism to help make this project useful as a free downloadable college text book.

    Donations of money to help support the writing and hosting of this project are greatly appreciated. Milo, PO Box 1361, Tustin, CA, 92781, USA.
