Thank you Russel Winder. Thanks to your comment, I was able to
find the book you spoke of and ordered it immediately.
For those who may be interested, here it is:
Psychology of Programming (Computers and People Series), written
by J-M Hoc, T.R.G. Green, R. samurcay, & D. Gilmore, published in
1991 by Academic Press.
As for me, it is interesting to notice that the authors of this
book work for Inria, the same French Institute who created F*
language in partnership with Microsoft Research, along with Low*,
a subset of F* language and its librairies, focused on C features
(e.g. the C memory model, stack and heap-allocated arrays,
machine integers, C string literals, etc.).
for more details.
It is really refreshing for the community to have someone like
you who keep connections with other languages, technologies and
I wish you the best!
