A Computer Science Tapestry: Exploring Computer Science with by Owen L. Astrachan

By Owen L. Astrachan

"A machine technological know-how Tapestry" is designed to be used in a primary direction in machine technology (CS1) that makes use of C++ as its programming language. This publication covers simple thoughts in programming, application layout and desktop technology in addition to giving scholars a superb creation to the C++ language. within the re-creation, Astrachan has placed extra emphasis on object-oriented programming by way of introducing a images library and together with a brand new bankruptcy on object-oriented ideas. He has additionally additional new case reports and "design tips".

Example text

Cpp results in the output shown below, where the first endl forces a new line of output. O UT P UT Goodbye cruel planet This modified output could be generated by using two separate output statements: cout << "Goodbye" << endl; cout << "cruel planet" << endl; Since each statement is executed one after the other, the output generated will be the same as that shown above. In C++, statements are terminated by a semicolon. This means that a single statement can extend over several lines since the semicolon is used to determine when the statement ends.

In this it is analogous to mathematics, and indeed the “science” part of computer science is, for the most part, mathematical in spirit. But an inevitable aspect of computer science is the creation of computer programs: objects that, though intangible, are subject to commercial exchange. ” In citing the work that led to the Turing award, the selection committee mentions this: The success of the UNIX system stems from its tasteful selection of a few key ideas and their elegant implementation. The model of the UNIX system has led a generation of software designers to new ways of thinking about programming.

Rather than the identifier partedhair, one would use parted_hair. Some recent studies indicate that using upper- and lowercase letters to differentiate the parts of an identifier can make them easier to read. In this book I adopt the convention that all programmer-defined functions and types8 begin with an uppercase letter. Uppercase letters are also used to separate subwords in an identifier, such as, PartedHair rather than parted_hair. Parameters (and later variables) begin with lowercase letters although uppercase letters may be used to delimit subwords in identifiers.
