**Special Note: Many of the items in the following sections are merely terms for certain types of programming, and are not associated with much explanatory material. That's because your textbook merely gives a number of examples of each type of programming, usually in a historical context. They are all program types with which we are very familiar, and they need no explanation. You could probably tell me more about many of them than I can tell you. Some terms do require some explanation, and I have included it where necessary.
