• Unit 1: Introduction and Setup

    This unit presents a brief history of C++ before addressing the mechanics of editing and compiling simple programs in C++ using the Eclipse IDE (integrated development environment). We will focus on how to write and format a general C++ program, the meaning of the main() function, how to use the cout and cin objects, how to declare and use variables, and how to use arithmetic operators.
