Aside: Unix and Posix. The 1960s was an era of huge, complex operating systems, such as IBM’s OS/360 and Honeywell’s Multics systems. While OS/360 was one of the most successful software projects in history, Multics dragged on for years and never achieved wide-scale use. Bell Laboratories was an original partner in the Multics project, but dropped out in 1969 because of concern over the complexity of the project and the lack of progress. In reaction to their unpleasant Multics experience, a group of Bell Labs researchers — Ken Thompson, Dennis Ritchie, Doug McIlroy, and Joe Ossanna — began work in 1969 on a simpler operating system for a DEC PDP-7 computer, written entirely in machine language.
Our symbols for representing these operations are chosen to match those used by the C bit-level operations, as will be discussed later. The Boolean operation ˜ corresponds to the logical operation N OT, denoted in propositional logic as . That is, we say that È is true when È is not true, and vice-versa. Correspondingly, ˜Ô equals 1 when Ô equals 0, and vice-versa. Boolean operation & corresponds to the logical operation A ND, denoted in propositional logic as . We say that È É holds when both È and É are true.
By using a standard character code, we can encode the letters and symbols in a document. We cover both of these encodings in this chapter, as well as encodings to represent negative numbers and to approximate real numbers. We consider the three most important encodings of numbers. Unsigned encodings are based on traditional binary notation, representing numbers greater than or equal to 0. Two’s complement encodings are the most common way to represent signed integers, that is, numbers that may be either positive or negative.
