The compact course on C/C++ takes place at the MPA from May 2, 2012, to May 15, 2012. It is tailored to Ph.D. students from the IMPRS. Lectures start at 9:30 s.t. and last for approximately 3 hours a 45 minutes, i.e. the course will finish around 12:15.
The slides are available on request directly from the lecturer.
Requirements & Preparation
Please bring your laptop (if you have one) to the course, since there will be a couple of hands-on sessions throughout the course. For those who haven't a laptop, we'll build teams of two or three persons (which is of great value anyway). Also, having any C/C++ reference book with you might be of value although it is not necessary.
Software & Systems
You need two pieces of software on your computer:
- A C/C++ compiler, and
- any plain text editor.
You should be familiar with your text editor and with the command line. If you use Linux/Unix, these systems come along with all the things you need, i.e. a compiler is installed (just doublecheck typing in g++ or gcc on the command line), and there's several text editors (vi, kedit, ...) available.
If you are using Windows, I strongly recommend to install MinWG before. Also, you should have Notepad or a similar editor at hand.
