Computers and Programming 2
FEKT-BPC2AAcad. year: 2015/2016
In the course will learned basic knowleges of C programming.
Learned knowledges: C language basics, keywords, standard libraries, memory management and pointers, structures, working with files, creating and implementation of new libraries, basic algorithms, programming styles, source code management. Program safety and testing. Embedded C specifications.
Learning outcomes of the course unit
The student is able:
- analyze task and make flowchart
- work with keywords, make simple examples of their using
- identify and correctly use proper data types
- work with dynamically allocated memory
- use standart input and output
- work with files
- use basic C libraries
- write simple program usign functions
- use basic algorithms for sortin, searching, linear lists
- understand code of others

Planned learning activities and teaching methods
Teaching methods include lectures and computer laboratories. Course is taking advantage of www pages coupled with e-learning (Moodle) system. Student knowledges are tested by exercises during the term.
Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes
Activity on excercises - up to 10 pts.
3 tests on excercises - up to 30pts each. Tests verify the knowledge of tought topics of lectures and exercises. Task represents the modification and extension of program, started in the homework or previous exercises.
(All tests are taken during semestr, there is no resit).
Requirements for completion of a course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every year.
Language of instruction
1) Course overwiev. Language history. Program structure and source code creation. Bit operations. Preprocessor.
2) Algorithms - sorting.
3) Standard and formated I/O.
4) Work with files.
5) Enum. State diagram, state machime. Math.h library.
6) Address, data type, pointer, value - and their realations. Pointer arithmetics.
7) Pointer and function.
8) Dynamic memory, alocation (stdlib.h). Fields in more dimensions.
9) Lifetime of variables. Strings, library for string manipulation - string.h.
10) .User defined composite types - struct, union, enum, bitfield.
11) Inline functions. Lists. Binary trees.
12) C99, C1X. _Bool (stdbool.h), complex, literals.
13) Const, volatile, restrict. Programming styles.
Content of seminars: practical exercises based on lecture topics.
Students are educated algorithmic and programming skils, based on C language. Basic properties and structures of language are explained. Simple programs are written with code design, creation and testing explatnation.
Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences
The content and forms of instruction in the evaluated course are specified by a regulation issued by the lecturer responsible for the course and updated for every academic year.
