Based on the course "Introduction to Programming", the block tutorial will give an introduction to basic programming in "C". If time permits, it will also cover some basic topics of object oriented programming in "C++". The programming examples will be chosen to support the course "Parallel Programming" in summer 2002.

Main topics of the block tutorial will include:

  • From Maple to C - the differences
  • Expressions and variables
  • C's data structures
  • Controll structures: if, while and for
  • C-Functions
  • arrays and pointers
  • Example: matrix and vector computations in C
  • Basics of object-oriented programming: From C to C++
