COS-116 C Programming

Explains how to write, debug and run programs in C language. The course includes discussions of algorithms, data types, arithmetic, assignments, relation and repetition. Functions, arrays, pointers, character strings, structures and files are used. It is advisable to have completed an introduction to computer programming course or to have equivalent programming experience. Students must have regular access to a computer with C compiler software either on a Windows or MS-DOS computer or on a Macintosh with PC emulation or with SoftPC installed. A C compiler is not supplied by the University and must be acquired by the student prior to or at the start of the course. It is not possible to proceed through the course without a C compiler. The compiler should be a full implementation of the ANSI standard for C. An ANSI C++ compiler may be used because C is a supported subset in a C++ compiler. Complete documentation is required to handle compiler variants and operational problems.
