Partial Evaluation and Automatic Program Generation
by Neil D. Jones, Carsten K. Gomard, Peter Sestoft
Publisher: Prentice Hall 1993
Number of pages: 400
This book is about partial evaluation, a program optimization technique also known as program specialization. It presents general principles for constructing partial evaluators for a variety of programming languages, and it gives examples of applications and numerous references to the literature. Partial evaluation works with program texts rather than mathematical functions: a partial evaluator is an algorithm which, when given a program and some of its input data, produces a so-called residual or specialized program. Running the residual program on the remaining input data will yield the same result as running the original program on all of its input data.

Many people would regard this as being two books in one. One book is an introduction to programming, teaching you basic concepts of organizing data and the programs that operate over them. The other book is an introduction to programming languages.
