Summary expansion
The concepts discussed in this encyclopedic treatment are applicable to any procedural language in any computing environment. The presentation, intended to help developers take strategic action rather than fight the same battles again and again, includes some 500 examples of code (good and bad), along with checklists for assessment of architecture, design approach, and module and routine quality.
