This appendix attempts to define some of the basic concepts
and terms that are used throughout the rest of this Web page.
As this Web page is specifically about
and not about computer programming in general, the coverage here
is by necessity fairly cursory and simplistic.
(If you need more background, there are many
other introductory texts that you should refer to instead.)
D.1 What a Program Does The high level view. D.2 Data Values in a Computer A very quick intro to data types. D.3 Floating-Point Number Caveats Stuff to know about floating-point numbers.
