| || ||The goal is to introduce students to ISO C programming language and programming techniques in C.|
| || ||The C programming language as defined by ISO. The definition of C language, pointers, modularity, C standard library. Basic overview of C++, using the C++ standard library.|
|Learning outcomes and competencies:|
| || ||Basic knowledge of C programming language, including pointers, address arithmetic, and dynamic memory allocation/deallocation. Modular programming in C.|
|Syllabus of lectures:|
- Introduction. Overview of C language (K&R, ANSI C, ISO C90, ISO C99). Basic language constructs, examples of C programs.
- Definition of C language: lexical elements, declaration syntax, basic types, variables.
- Arrays, address space, address, pointer. Pointers and arrays, address arithmetic. Alignment, little/big endian. Dynamic memory allocation.
- C-strings, multi-dimensional arrays, structures, unions.
- Enumerations. Expressions, operators, type casting, operator precedence. Statements.
- Functions, argument passing. Pointers to functions. Command line arguments. The C preprocessor: macros, conditional compilation.
- Program structure, compilation units. Linking. Program "make".
- The C standard library. Debugging support, character classification, internationalization. Input/output, files.
- The examples of standard library use. String and memory management. Time functions. Math library, complex library.
- The creation of libraries. Development environments. Program checking tools. Programm documentation tools.
- C++ basics, typical differences of C and C++. New operators of C++, overloading basics, namespaces.
- Input/output in C++, streams. Basic use of C++ standard library (containers, iterators, algorithms, strings).
- Linking of code written in various languages. Profiling and program optimization. Rules for writing portable code.
