I has been reading a french grammar book, with good results in learning more of french language, but as this book lists the tenses for the indicative mood...

Present
Immediate Future
Immediate Past
Past Historic
Perfect
Imperfect
Pluperfect
Past Anterior
Double Compound Tense
Future Perfect

Now I wonder, what are the french words for these ?

That's my best guess:

Present --> présent
Immediate Future --> futur simple
Immediate Past --> passé simple
Past Historic -->
Perfect
Imperfect --> imparfait
Pluperfect --> plus-que-parfait
Past Anterior --> passé antérieur
Double Compound Tense
Future Perfect --> futur antérieur ??
