Subject:a good manual From:Fred M Jacobson <fred -at- BOOLE -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 15 Mar 1994 16:23:39 PST
The Spring 1994 issue of the Computer Literacy Bookshops New Book
Bulletin, their quarterly catalog, includes an interview with
Donald E. Knuth, famous computer scientist and author of a couple
of books they want to sell you. The interviewer asked Knuth what
software he's using now. He says and ends with, "I also use
Mathematica. [...some reasons why...] Also, the Mathematica
manual is exceptionally good." A good reason to use a good program
from someone who knows good computer writing.
