Using C++ :
- Source File: C++ programming begins with a source
file that contain a list of instructions that computer will
execute. We write these instructions within a defined zone, and
there would be some rules you must abide.
- You need an Editor: In the above illustration, I used
a text editor and saved in a folder where an application (a
compiler more precisely) can apprehend this instruction and
converts into an executable. An executable files usually
converts all the statements into machine languages, (visibly it
will be ones and zeros), and you can call trigger this
executable to display the results.
- You preach the same what you practice: Below, I
demonstrated that I used an text Editor like Text Pad 4.0,
opened an existing document edited it and used window's command
line application to compile and display the results.
- You pick a compiler you like: There are many C/C++
programming compilers available, and I would try to touch base
with few of these compilers later down the road. In the current
document, you would notice that I used MinGW compiler, and which
also served as the applications like Eclipse and NetBeans.
Theme of C++ : What you are getting into.
- C/C++ is the mother of all programming languages, and
consists of three different themes. If you know C/C++, it would
be much easier to understand other programming languages.
