Notes for SE5120, by Dr Jan Pajak
SE5120 course carries 15 credits, or 150 learning hours. It extends for two
terms, or one semester, means for 16 weeks in total. It represents stage 1
of programming course in C language. It is composed of two parts,
namely training part 1 (10 weeks), and project part 2 (6 weeks).
The lecture notes and example programs that I am presenting here
are prepared for the Borland C++ Builder version 6 (but utilised
as C language compiler).

Course Outline (for block 3 and 4 of 2003).
Theory content of this course is based on the materials handed out to students.
However, the preliminary use of following textbook would be helpful (this
textbook is to be used for SE5220 - which represents stage 2 of this course):
 Deitel and Deitel: C++ How to Program, 4th Edition, Prentice Hall, ISBN 0-13-111881-1.
Practical laboratory content:
(2003 - part 1) Notes for the instruction part of SE5120 (i.e. first 10 weeks):
Exercise 1 (Introduction; interactive processing, general structure of a C program, “hello world” C program.)
Exercise 2 (Iterative statements: “while”, “do while”, and “for” loops.)
Exercise 3 (If statements. Relational operators. Compound conditions. Switch statement.)
Exercise 4 (Functions. Pass by value, pass by reference.)
Exercise 5 (Disk I/O and file handling in C.)
Exercise 6 (Console I/O formatting in C.)
Exercise 7 (Identifiers, data types, and C variables.)
Exercise 8 (String handling and string functions in C.)
(2003 - part 2) Notes for the project part of SE5120 (i.e. another 6 weeks):
Project specification (Project 1, C langauge).
Appendix B1 to Project 1 (Feasibility study.)
Appendix B2 to Project 1 (Program specification.)
Appendix B3 to Project 1 (Program design.)
Appendix B4 to Project 1 (Programming.)

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.
(5) If you wish to see any other related web pages - see the Links Page

here, are available at the web page
