Unformatted text preview: Unit 01 "Hello World!" Unit Objectives Become familiar with the basic functionality of your Integrated Development Environment (IDE) Write and run your first Program! Learn to understand and correct errors found by the compiler. (and what a compiler is) Understand the syntax of your first program. Perform some simple integer math operations and output the results to the screen. Introduction How would you like to write a computer program that most of your professors can't write? It is the canonical (i.e. definitive in geek talk) program every programmer writes first. The difference is that we are going to make it work on your computer. This program will make an executable application, just like all of the program applications you run. Just do exactly what I ask. But first, if anything goes wrong and you get confused, dont panic. You can always turn your computer off and start all over again. No harm done. A note on footnotes: Occasionally, we will want to share a little extra information without mucking up the clarity of the tutorial. So look out for the the footnote ( ). Go ahead and move your mouse over the icon. In case it is not working, it says, "Some browsers may cut off or ignore footnotes that are too long. If you cannot see this footnote, then this may be true for the browser you are using and you may need to upgrade." Most comments will not be this long, but I have found the newest versions of most common browsers (IE, FF, Chrome) have the best behavior when it comes to footnotes. When you see this book icon, it will point you to chapters in the optional text or helpful links on the web. This material is optional and supplemental. But for some of you, it may explain the concepts better than we do here. For complete information on the text, see the syllabus. That's the basics for reading the tutorials. All the units are further broken into tasks that you should complete. This unit has 6 simple tasks, so let's get started! Task 1 - Learning the tools... To create programs, just like anything else you create, you will need some tools. The tutorial page in the left menu will teach you the tools available to you here at UT. Before you continue this tutorial, you will need to follow the directions for using these tools to create a simple C++ program. Then continue with Unit 01. So click on the link in the menu or the one below....
