Programming Itanium-based Systems Intro


Computers, such as those that use the Intel® Itanium™ processor,

cannot solve problems. They are simply machines and must be told

what to do. Programmers tell computers what to do by writing sets of

instructions known as computer programs or, simply, software.

This is not a book about how to program computers or the theory

of computer programming. This book is about the software used to

program computers configured with the Itanium™ processor. It is

about the programming languages used by such machines, and the

similarities and the differences in writing software for them. This

book presumes some minimal knowledge of computers and a

familiarity with at least one programming language, either C or

Fortran 90.
