Title: A review of "Structured Programming".
Author: Knuth, Donald E.
Date: June 1973
Abstract: The recent book $\underline{Structured Programming} by 0. J. Dahl, E. W. Dijkstra, and C. A. R. Hoare promises to have a significant impact on computer science. This report contains a detailed review of the topics treated in that book, in the form of three informal "open letters" to the three authors. It is hoped that circulation of these letters to a wider audience at this time will help to promote useful discussion of the important issues.
