Number of pages: 441

Description:
This book presents the results of Project Oberon, namely an entire software environment for a modern workstation. The project was undertaken by the authors in the years 1986-89, and its primary goal was to design and implement an entire system from scratch, and to structure it in such a way that it can be described, explained, and understood as a whole. In order to become confronted with all aspects, problems, design decisions and details, the authors not only conceived but also programmed the entire system described in this book, and more. Although there exist numerous books explaining principles and structures of operating systems, there is a lack of descriptions of systems actually implemented and used. The book gives advice on how a system might be built, and demonstrates how one was built. Program listings therefore play a key role in this text, because they alone contain the ultimate explanations.
