: CSci 1113 C/C++ for Scientists and Engineers Section 010 - evening class Exam Review, C and C++ strings Prof. Eric Van Wyk and Ted Kaminski Spring 2010 c ± Van Wyk and Kaminski CSci 1113: C/C++ for Scientists and Engineers, evening class Spring 2010 Page 1 / 35 : Agenda I review for midterm exam I strings as char arrays I The C++ string class I begin dynamic memory allocation and pointers. c ± Van Wyk and Kaminski CSci 1113: C/C++ for Scientists and Engineers, evening class Spring 2010 Page 2 / 35 Lab midterm exam review : Logistics I Two hours: 90 minutes for exam and 30 minutes for grading. I Open book, notes, lab files, course web pages. I A web browser can be connected to the course website. I Be sure to get all the code you’ve written with your lab partner. I You can ask a TA about a ”syntax” problem. e.g., what does this error message mean? I If you finish early, your exam can be graded but in silence. c ± Van Wyk and Kaminski CSci 1113: C/C++ for Scientists and Engineers, evening class Spring 2010 Page 3 / 35 Lab midterm exam review : Coverage I Material covered: chapters 1-5 and 12 of the text. I Functions, Arrays, File I/O and streams. I Be able to write complete working programs that use these features. I Significant points allowed for partial work. I See the online review document and sample exam. c ± Van Wyk and Kaminski CSci 1113: C/C++ for Scientists and Engineers, evening class Spring 2010 Page 4 / 35 C-style strings : C and C++ strings I There are two implementations of strings in C++. 1. The old version inherited from C. 2. The new class-based C++ version. c ± Van Wyk and Kaminski CSci 1113: C/C++ for Scientists and Engineers, evening class Spring 2010 Page 5 / 35 C-style strings : C-style strings I Implemented as an array of characters. I The length is not explicitly specified. The end of the string is indicated by the character \ 0 . I char s[10]; This holds a string of at most 9 characters. One extra is needed for the “sentinel” \ 0 . I How is “Hi Mom!” represented this way? c ± Van Wyk and Kaminski CSci 1113: C/C++ for Scientists and Engineers, evening class Spring 2010 Page 6 / 35
