Since the original text of the book was lost, this HTML version was produced by scanning a printed copy of the book, and then editing it into this HTML version. While we believe this worked, and produced a correct version, with known errata corrected, it may have introduced new errors. If you find any, please let me know.
This is almost completely a reproduction of the original 1978 printed book. We have resisted the temptation to update the content, say by introduction of the 64-bit RISC architecture (MMIX), or by discussing keyboards, mice, or display screens. The only changes have been to fix errors and to number all exercises (instead of the original mixture of numbers and letters).
