From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Algorithms + Data Structures = Programs[1] is a book written by Niklaus Wirth covering some of the fundamental topics of computer programming, particularly that algorithms and data structures are inherently related. For example, if one has a sorted list one will use a search algorithm optimal for sorted lists.

The book was one of the most influential computer science books of the time and, like Wirth's other work, extensively used in education, though because of its theoretical nature rarely by those on the front line.

The Turbo Pascal compiler written by Anders Hejlsberg was largely inspired by the "Tiny Pascal" compiler in Niklaus Wirth's book.
