C++ tutorial code samples for those who want to start learning the language
This repository contains C++ sample codes that I adopted from various sources to help instruct programming in C++ in 2005. These samples try to help newcomers quickly find an appropriate pattern for solving their programming problems. Also they can quickly find out how a certain language construct, or a popular function is generally used.
These samples are by no means complete, nor free from deficiencies. Feel free to make them complete or introduce them to more C++ newbies or teachers. The samples cover only the standard/ISO C++ language.
To access or contribute the most recent modifications of these samples, find their github repository here: https://github.com/sinairv/Cpp-Tutorial-Samples
Each sample has a separate folder of its own, and is usually in a file named
Prog.cpp. If you want to build a sample with Microsoft Visual Studio, then you need to create a project and copy the sample into that project by your own.
However there's a
Makefilein each directory, which makes the process of building and running the samples easier in Linux/Unix and Cygwin. In order to build each sample, simply
cdto its directory and run
maketo build the required executable. Run
make cleanto clean-up your directory. Also
make full, first cleans and then rebuilds each sample.
Beside several Internet sources, the following are the main references that I used during the course of creating these samples. Most of the samples are adopted from the first reference. Even many of the comments are quoted from it. I strongly recommend studying the first reference, if you are learning C++ as a first programming language.
