A Gentle Introduction to Object-Oriented Programming and C++

  • Jack Purdum


The purpose of this chapter is singular: I want to teach you enough about object-oriented programming (OOP) and C++ so that you can look at the source code of a library header (*.h) file and its associated C plus-plus (*.cpp) file and have some idea of what the code is doing. To say that I (or anyone else) can teach you C++ in one chapter is either a lie or a REALLY long chapter. Still, it’s worthwhile having an idea of what OOP is and what it brings to the programming table. This chapter builds on information contained in Chapter  12, so make sure that you have already read that chapter.
