The programming language C As a programming language, C is rather like Pascal or Fortran. Values are stored in variables. Programs are structured by defining and calling functions. Program flow is controlled using loops, if statements and function calls. Input and output can be directed to the terminal or to files. Related data can be stored together in arrays or structures.
Of the three languages, C allows the most precise control of input and output. C is also rather more terse than Fortran or Pascal. This can result in short efficient programs, where the programmer has made wise use of C's range of powerful operators. It also allows the programmer to produce programs which are impossible to understand.
The Annotations of C++
This document offers an introduction to the C++ programming language. It is a guide for C/C++ programming courses, yearly presented by Frank at the University of Groningen. This document is not a complete C/C++ handbook, as much of the C-background of C++ is not covered. Other sources should be referred to for that.
The reader should realize that extensive knowledge of the C programming language is actually assumed. The C++ Annotations continue where topics of the C programming language end, such as pointers basic flow control and the construction of functions.
The version number of the C++ Annotations is updated when the contents of the document change. The first number is the major number, and will probably not be changed for some time: it indicates a major rewriting. The middle number is increased when new information is added to the document. The last number only indicates small changes; it is increased when, e.g., series of typos are corrected.
Introduction with the C++ The use of computer languages is an essential link in the chain between human and computer. In this text we hope to make the reader more aware of some aspects of
*Imperative programming languages - their syntactic and semantic features; the ways of specifying syntax and semantics; problem areas and ambiguities; the power and usefulness of various features of a language.
* Translators for programming languages - the various classes of translator (assemblers, compilers, interpreters); implementation of translators.
* Compiler generators - tools that are available to help automate the construction of translators for programming languages.
of C++ programming language C++ is a general-purpose computer programming language. It is a statically typed free-form multi-paradigm language supporting procedural programming, data abstraction, object-oriented programming, and generic programming. During the 1990s, C++ became one of the most popular programming
languages. The C++ language is not "a better C", it is mainly an extension of C dedicated to extend it into the generic and object-oriented programming paradigm. Features introduced in C++ include declarations as statements, function-like casts, new/delete, bool, reference types, const, inline functions, default arguments, function overloading, namespaces, classes (including all class-related features such as inheritance, member functions, virtual functions, abstract classes, and constructors), operator overloading, templates, the :: operator, exception handling, and run-time type identification.
The C++ practical programming guide
This book is designed to provide teaching materials to any instructor who wants to use Practical C++ Programming in his classroom. The materials contained in this book contains of a set of slides
and teachers' notes Practical C++ Programming is being used in a wide variety of classrooms, from the university campus to the industrial seminar. The slides are designed to support this wide usage. Instructors are encouraged to take the material and customize it for their own environment.
In addition to the slides there is a set of end of chapter questions so that you can you test your knowledge of the material presented.
The teachers' notes contains suggestions and tips on how to best present the information in the classroom.
