    I haven't read these all the way through mind you, but these books make up the greatest programing reference available, not for any language mind you, but programing in general, meta-programing if you well. Algorithms galore, sorting, and searching, and etc. If your looking for a solution to a programing problem its probably here. Required for intermediate level skill and up, not for beginners. Book 4A is the compilation of the the five Fascicles, making this a vary complete and desirable collec I haven't read these all the way through mind you, but these books make up the greatest programing reference available, not for any language mind you, but programing in general, meta-programing if you well.
