Course Description : The course covers the basic concepts of object oriented programming using C++ programming language.
Course Objective : The main objective of this course is to understand object oriented programming and advanced C++ concepts such as composition of objects, operator overloads, inheritance and polymorphism, file I/O, exception handling and templates.
Overview of structured programming approach, Object oriented programming approach, Characteristics of object oriented languages
C++ Program Structure, Character Set and Tokens, Data Type, Type Conversion, Preprocessor Directives, Namespace, Input/Output Streams and Manipulators, Dynamic Memory Allocation with new and delete, Control Statements.
Functions: Function Overloading, Inline Functions, Default Argument, Pass by Reference, Return by Reference, Scope and Storage Class.
Pointers: Pointer variables declaration & initialization, Operators in pointers, Pointers and Arrays, Pointer and Function.
A Simple Class and Object, Accessing members of class, Initialization of class objects: (Constructor, Destructor), Default Constructor, Parameterized Constructor, Copy Constructor, The Default Copy Constructor, Objects as Function Arguments, Returning Objects from Functions, Structures and Classes, Memory allocation for Objects, Static members, Member functions defined outside the class.
Fundamental of operator overloading, Restriction on operator overloading, Operator functions as a class members, Overloading unary and binary operator, Data Conversion (basic to basic, basic to user-defined, user-defined to basic, user-defined to user-defined)
Introduction to inheritance, Derived Class and Base Class, Access Specifiers (private, protected, and public), Types of inheritance, Public and Private Inheritance, Constructor and Destructor in derived classes, Aggregation
Concept of Virtual functions, Late Binding, Abstract class and pure virtual functions, Virtual Destructors, Virtual base class, Friend function and Static function, Assignment and copy initialization, Copy constructor, This pointer, Concrete classes, Polymorphism and its roles.
Function templates, Function templates with multiple arguments, Class templates, templates and inheritance, Exceptional Handling (Try, throw and catch), Use of exceptional handling.
Stream Class Hierarchy for Console Input /Output, Unformatted Input /Output, Formatted Input/Output with ios Member functions, Formatting with Manipulators, Stream Operator Overloading, File Input/output with Streams, Opening and Closing files, Read/Write from File, File Access Pointers and their Manipulators, Sequential and Random Access to File, Testing Errors during File Operations
Students should be able to implement the concepts of Object Oriented Programming using C++ language.
