CMIS 315 C++ Final Review Notes

This page has some vague guesses / notes for the Final exam. For me. Which means there could be misunderstandings, bilge, and things missing. If you see something incorrect, please let me know!

Blocks of Working Example Code:


Imaginary Number Class:

Random Blocks of Code:

Random Things to Know:

ABSTRACT CLASS = any class with a pure virtual function

POLYMORPHISM = a pointer or reference to a base class type that 
 determines what type object is being referred to while the program is running.

NAMESPACES = code to group declarations to prevent name conflicts

INHERITANCE = create hierarchial relationships between objects, allowing 
 child (derived) class to use data/functions from parent(base) class.
 * private = visible only in the class and friends
 * public = visible in subclasses and clients
 * protected = visible in the class and subclasses, but not clients

FRIEND = gives an outside class access to a class's protected and private members

ENCAPSULATION = hiding data within a class


Module 2: Pointers, Arrays, and Strings

Module 3: Data Abstraction

Module 4: Using Operator Overloading

Course objectives:
# classes, constructors, destructors, operator overloading, and function overloading
# understand the fundamental concepts of data abstraction 
# understand the mechanism of pointers and C++ references
# build a recursive function 
# use dynamic memory allocation to build linked-list and dynamic resized arrays
# differentiate C and C++ from both a historical and functional perspective
# understand how C++ may be applied too ad variety of disciplines
