Overview/Description
Understanding the structure of C++ programs is critical for implementing C++ code effectively. Variables are another basic concept that is key to success. This course covers the structure of C++ programs from branching and looping to the inclusion of functions as discrete code blocks. You'll also learn about variables and memory allocation, handling exceptions, file IO, and working with and formatting strings.
