COSC 1320 - C++ Programming and
ITSE 1307 - Introduction to C++ Programming
Bob Comer, Professor of Computer Studies
Who Should Enroll
This course is intended for students who already know how to program in some procedural programming language, such as Pascal, Fortran, Cobol, PL/I, etc. You do not need to know any C or C++. For a list of topics that you should understand, click here. If you have never written procedural programs before you need to take COSC 1315 Fundamentals of Programming .
C++ is an extension to the C programming language. In order to learn C++, you must learn C. This course is primarily a C programming course; however, we will be covering the C++ input/output subsystem instead of the C input/output subsystem. Also, we introduce C++ classes but do not cover them in depth.
If you have never programmed before, or have very limited programming experience, it is unlikely that you will be successful in this course. There are two reasons for this:
If you are an experienced C programmer, and want to learn C++, this course may be too elementary for you. With a quick overview of the C++ input/output subsystem, you may be ready for ITSE 2431 - Advanced C++ Programming. This course goes much deeper into the object-oriented features of C++ such as classes, inheritance, and polymorphism.
