Notes for PR611, by Dr Jan Pajak
PR611 course has 14 credits, or 140 learning hours. It extends for two
terms, or one semester, means for 16 weeks in total. It represents stage 2
of programming courses in C and C++ languages. It is composed of two parts,
namely part 1 on "Procedural Programming", or "PP", and part 2 on "Object
Orinted Programming", or "OO". Both parts extend for 8 weeks each.
The lecture notes and example programs that I am presenting here
are prepared for the Borland C++ Builder versions 5 and 6.

Course Outline (for block 1 and 2 of 2003).
Theory content of this course is based on the following textbook
 Deitel and Deitel: C++ How to Program, 4th Edition, Prentice Hall, ISBN 0-13-111881-1.
and it includes chapters 1 to 5 of .
Practical laboratory content:
(2003 - PP) Notes for the "Procedural Programming" part of PR611 (i.e. first 8 weeks):
Exercise PP1 (Typing in, compiling, and running your first C++ program. Keyboard input and screen output statements).
Exercise PP2 (Date and time in C++; system commands, string functions and their parameters).
Exercise PP3 (Selection and iteration statements in C++).
Exercise PP4 (Sequential file handling in C++: .open, .getline, .write, .close functions; backups).
Exercise PP5 (Modular programming in C++: functions and menu program).
Exercise PP6 (Bubble Sort).
Exercise PP7 (Array handling and strings handling in C++).
Exercise PP8 (Printing in C++ on a stand alone printer).
(2003 - OO) Notes for the "Object Oriented Programming" part of PR611 (i.e. another 8 weeks):
Lecture L1 (Classes and objects in OO C++).
Exercise OO1 (Typing in, compiling, and running your first GUI Borland C++ OO program; screen output methods).
Exercise OO2 (Random number generator).
Exercise OO3 (Date and time retrieval from the system in OO C+).
Exercise OO4 (Array handling, string handling and control statements in OO C++).
Lecture L7 (Inheritance and Polymorphism in OO C++).
(2003 - PP Assessment) Examples of assessment for the "Procedural Programming" part of PR611 (i.e. first 8 weeks):
Assignment PP1 for PP C++. (PR611).
Assignment PP2 for PP C++. (PR611).
Assignment PP3 for PP C++. (PR611).
Assignment PP4 for PP C++. (PR611).
Assignment PP5 for PP C++. (PR611).
Sample problems for final test from PP C++. (PR611)
(2003 - OO Assessment) Examples of assessment topics for the "Object Oriented Programming" part of PR611 (i.e. another 8 weeks):
Assignment OO1 for PP C++. (PR611).
Assignment OO2 for PP C++. (PR611).
Sample problems for final test from OO C++. (PR611)
2003 Sample solutions:
(2003 - PP Solutions) Examples of solutions for assessments from the "Procedural Programming" part of PR611 (i.e. first 8 weeks):
Assignment PP4 example of source code. Console C++ source code: (basic solution for translation of month name).
Assignment PP4 example of EXE program. Executable program for a basic solution of month name translation.
(2003 - OO Solutions) Examples of solutions for assessment problems from the "Object Oriented Programming" part of PR611 (i.e. another 8 weeks):
Assignment OO1 example of source code. Console C++ source code: cylinder clas and object.
Assignment OO1 example of EXE program. Executable program for a cylinder clas and object.
Instructions on how to use this web page:
(1) Each C++ program is provided here in two versions, namely
(a) as a source code (*.cpp), which is prepered for the Borland C++
Builder 5 or 6 (but in most of cases it also works on Microsoft Visual
Studio 6 C++), and
(b) as an executable version of a given C++ program (*.exe).
Each one of these two versions needs to be downloaded separately.
(2) In order to download to your computer any of these two versions (*.cpp
or/and *.exe) of a given C++ solution,
click on this version,
and then follow the instructions that appear in the downloading window.
(3) To return to this web page, click on the Back
button on the tool palette of your browser.
(4) Some solutions are compressed into standard zip
files. Therefore, you need to unzip them first before they are executed or compiled.
