Layered books

I have started over. The book creation project, previously reported on Books with Views is continued, but as Layered Books.

I moved from XML to pandoc, replacing many lines of Python with significantly fewer lines of Python, for processing the book source files and generating output.

For the moment, there is one book, in html format.


Into Embedded – two chapters to look at

The first two chapters of the book Into Embedded have been updated.

There is also a Book Software page where you can download the software for these two chapters.

The software treats, for 32-bit Intel and for ARM, the topic of building a small program that can run without the help of an operating system. This is often referred to as bare metal programming, and I think it can be both rewarding and challenging.

Two chapters in good shape

Today I released a version of Into Programming, where the first two chapters, called Welcome and Names and Values, are in a somewhat readable form.

I will continue the work with finishing the other chapters, while at the same time working on the book generation software.

Connecting the views also at code figures

The Books with Views book creation software now generates links between the views also directly after figures showing code. As an example, you can try the links directly after Figure 3 in Into Programming.

In addition, the web-version of each book now contains links at the end of each section, linking to the next section in the book.

Adding math

Examples of mathematical equations have been added to the book Into Programming. You can see the equations in the Section called Do it more than once in the book Into Programming. You can also see them on the book’s About page for equations.

Book creation date and time added

There is now information about creation date and time for the book Into Programming, on its About page.

An index has been added

The book Into Programming has been updated. An index has been added, with a search functionality (try the search box on the top right of the pages). There is also a page where all words from the index are collected.

Also, the text in Section Say hello has been edited, and more details have been added, to the C view and to the Java view.
