for class on Thursday March 30, 2000
Please read Section 7.5 (pp. 307-327) of the Schneider and Gersting text, treating Section 7.5.1 very casually and the rest very seriously, and be prepared to discuss the following:
The text uses the C++ programming language. In your programming labs you will be using Java. It turns out that Java and C++ both have a big chunk of the C language as a subset, and we will be using that subset in the next few classes. Your text focuses on that subset too.
Please prepare for this class by doing some programming in C. Pick any two examples from the following list. The algorithms get harder as you go down the list, so if you find this pretty easy try the ones at the end of the list. Use at least one for loop. Unsure about for loops? Here's a link to a definition and example grabbed from the U. of Bath.
