Notes for C++ Programing

General Doc Information

Initial Entry
Date: 2017.October.16th

I have begun exploring C++ with the goal of developing a strong foundation in code programming concepts.

WHY ::
I initially attacked the development space with javaScript as my phylinx. But, I have now called into question whether or it is the best median for understanding of core concepts that I have begun to run into as I have explored the space further. Therefore, I have decided to mirror to a degree the current method of learning core concepts. Hence the beginning of this journal.

note: At this point I am not convinced this was the wrong approch. Though, at this point there is enough reason to explore the benefits of learning c++

As I have been exploring the software development space I will not go into the reasons behind my desire to be a proficient programer here.

C++ Basics

C++ fully supports the four pillars of object oriented development

  • encapsulation
  • data hiding
  • inheritance
  • polymorphism

ANSI :: this standard ensures C++ complies without error on Mac, UNIX, Windows and Alpha


  • object - objects have states and behaviors. An object is a instance of a class.
    • Example: A dog has a state - color, name, breed and behaviors - wagging, barking, eating.
  • class - a class is a a template/blueprint that describes the behaviors/states
  • methods - a method is a behavior. Classes can contain methods. Logic and data manipulation and actions are executed.
  • instance variables - an objects state is created by the values assigned to these instance variables.
Semicolons and Blocks C++

A logical entity in C++ must end with a semicolon. The semicolon is a statement terminator.

int x = 5;
int y = x + 4;
int add( x, y){
  return  x + y;
Reserved Words
asm else new this
auto enum operator throw
bool explicit private true
break export protected try
case extern public typedef
catch false register typeid
char float reinterpret_cast typename
class for return union
const friend short unsigned
const_cast goto signed using
continue if sizeof virtual
default inline static void
delete int static_cast volatile
do long struct wchar_t
double mutable switch while
dynamic_cast namespace template


<<---- Data-types & memory allocation --->> <<---- chars and their numeric values --->> <<---- implicit and explicit conversion --->

//static cast

//static cast
int num1 = 5 + static_cast<int>(12.75);
double num1 = static_cast<double>(5) + 12.75;
char x = static_cast<char>(65);
