C++ is a widely used programming language for application development. In this course, the students learn a language that has many practical uses in the real world. The course introduces C++ syntax and functions not found in the traditional C. The fundamental concepts of the object oriented paradigm are introduced and object oriented programming is stressed in place of traditional structured programming. Object arrays, pointers to objects, and linked lists of objects are the focus of the class. Three class hours a week.
This course is designed to enable C programmers to become proficient in C++. Topics include class definitions, overloading functions and operators, access control, single and multiple inheritance, virtual functions and abstract classes, templates, exceptions, and the standard template library. Useful applications such as smart pointers and reference counting are also discussed. Prerequisites: a working knowledge of C, including structures and pointers, is assumed; substantial experience in C is preferred.
At the completion of the course, the students will understand the concepts and be able to write basic C++ programs that make use of the following:
