Lecture Preview: Intro to C++

(Suggested book reading: Programming Abstractions in C++, Chapters 1-2)

In this lecture we will go over our course policies as shown in the Course Information handout. We will also briefly introduce the C++ language by showing a few simple programs. Here is an example of an initial C++ program:

 * This is my first C++ program.

#include <iostream>
#include "console.h"
using namespace std;

// Prints one line of output to the console.

int main() {
    cout << "Hello, world!" << endl;
    return 0;

Many of the parts of the above program have equivalents in Java:

C++ Java
#include <iostream> import java.lang.*;
using namespace std; import java.lang.*; (sort of)
int main() { public static void main(String[] args) {
cout << "Hello, world!" System.out.println("Hello, world!");
endl \n (end-of-line)
