C Programming Course Outline
The C programming language has been used extensively for many years resulting in large amounts of legacy code that must still be maintained, and in many areas where small size and efficiency are of primary concern C is still very much the language of choice. This course guides experienced programmers through the complexities of writing and maintaining C. The C language was standardized in 1990 and a new standard introduced in 1999. As many of the largest compiler suppliers have stated they will not upgrade their compilers to the new 1999 standard this course focuses on the 1990 standard making mention of the 1999 features where appropriate.
completion of the course the delegate should be able to:
Write, maintain and debug C programs, use arrays, structures and dynamic memory. Make effective use of the Standard Library, in particular the file I/O.
This course is designed for experienced programmers that need to write or maintain C programs.
It is assumed that anyone attending this course is experienced in a block-structured language such as Pascal, modern variants of Basic, Smalltalk, Ada etc. They should be familiar with concepts such as functions or procedures, control flow, arrays, and structures or records. Any prior knowledge of C is neither assumed nor required.
The course is spread over a four-day period and comprises of instructor-led presentations and practical hands-on exercises. The practical sessions are structured to give the delegates the opportunity to put into practice all of the language constructs covered during the instructor-led sessions. The delegates will be able to take away with them copies of all the code they have written, along with sample solutions and demonstration code.
