Learning objectives:
  The goal is to introduce students to ISO C programming language and programming techniques in C.
Description:
  The C programming language as defined by ISO standard. The definition of C language, pointers, modularity, C standard library. Debugging and testing of programs. Basic overview of C++, using the C++ standard library.
Learning outcomes and competences:
  Basic knowledge of C programming language, including pointers, address arithmetic, and dynamic memory allocation/deallocation. Modular programming in C.
Syllabus of lectures:
 
  1. Introduction. Overview of C language (K&R, ANSI C, ISO C90, ISO C99, ISO C11). Basic language constructs, examples of C programs.
  2. Definition of C language: lexical elements, declaration syntax, basic types, variables.
  3. Array, address space, address, pointer. Pointers and arrays, address arithmetic. Alignment, little/big endian. Dynamic memory allocation.
  4. C-strings, multi-dimensional arrays, structures, unions.
  5. Enumerations. Expressions, operators, type casting, operator precedence. Statements.
  6. Functions, argument passing. Pointers to functions. Command line arguments. The C preprocessor: macros, conditional compilation.
  7. Program structure, compilation units. Linking. Program "make".
  8. The C standard library. Debugging support, character classification, internationalization. Input/output, files.
  9. The examples of standard library use. String and memory management. Time functions. Math library, complex library.
  10. Creation of shared libraries. Linking of code written in various languages. 
  11. C++ basics, typical differences of C and C++. New operators of C++, overloading, namespaces.
  12. Input/output in C++, streams. Basic use of C++ standard library (containers, iterators, algorithms, strings). Simple examples.
  13. Profiling and program optimization. Rules for writing portable code. Program checking tools. Program documentation tools.
