PREREQUISITE: EECS 111
DETAILED COURSE TOPICS:
- Introduction to software engineering.
- Basic data types, variables, computer arithmetic, expressions, parentheses.
- Basic I/O – cout, cin.
- Introduction to classes – defining one's own data types
- Flow of control – sequential, test-and-branch, and iteration. Boolean expressions.
- Arrays, pointers, and strings.
- Functions: call by value and call by reference, references vs. pointers, stack frames.
- Function overloading
- INTRODUCTION TO CLASSES:
- Structures and classes, data hiding and encapsulation.
- Public and private members, constructors, unions.
- Interface vs. implementation.
- Class destructors and copy constructors, the = operator, deep versus shallow copies.
- C++ operator overloading.
- Heap space, the new/delete operators.
- Inheritance and derived classes, is-a hierarchies and composition of classes.
- Virtual functions and polymorphism.
- Linked list processing: stacks and queues, trees and recursion.
- Introduction to UNIX – processes, file management, redirection and piping, make files.
