A brief outline of the topics we have covered is described below. (This list is intended to be as complete as possible but may not be all inclusive.) Data Types . The key concepts were aliasing, static vs. dynamic binding, particularly of types, static vs. dynamic scope, and the notion of environment. Among structured data types, we concentrated on arrays, records, unions, and pointers, including garbage collection. Expressions . The key concepts were the operand evaluation order, including short-circuit Boolean expressions, functional side effects, operator overloading, and type coercion. Statements . The design and implementation of conditional and looping statements were discussed, including if, while, switch, and for types of statements, and guarded commands. Subprograms . The management of subprogram activations was discussed for the simple call-return model, including recursive subprograms. Central issues were the implementation of non-local refer- encing environments, parameter-passing methods, aliasing, static vs. dynamic scope, static chain vs. display, and shallow vs. deep access. Data Abstraction and Object-Oriented Programming . C++ was introduced as an object-oriented pro- gramming language and contrasted with Java. Generic units in Ada and C++ were discussed along with static vs. dynamic binding.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
