This C++ for Non C Programmers training course is a comprehensive hands-on introduction to object oriented programming in C++ for non-C programmers. Emphasis is placed on the features of C++ that support effective modeling of the problem domain and reuse of code. The course consists of two modules. The first module introduces the core C features of C++, with simplified input/output through iostreams. The module begins with simple hands- on programming using C++ to do input, computation and output. The C++ data types are covered, and simple if tests and loops are covered. C++ program structure is introduced. Pointers, addressing, and arrays are discussed. Structures and unions are covered. In the second module, object-oriented concepts are introduced. The C++ class construct is introduced and its key features elaborated step-by-step, providing full implementation of abstract data types. C++ memory management is discussed. Function and operator overloading and the use of references are covered. The scope and access control mechanisms of C++ are described. Inheritance is introduced. The use of virtual functions to implement polymorphism is discussed. Extensive programming examples and exercises are provided. The course is current to ANSI standard C++ and is designed so that it can be taught in any environment with an ANSI C++ compiler.
