Problem Solving, Abstraction, and Design Using C++ presents and reinforces basic principles of software engineering design and object-oriented programming concepts while introducing the C++ programming language. The hallmark feature of this book is the Software Development Method that is introduced in the first chapter and carried throughout in the case studies presented.
New to the Sixth Edition
Students will benefit from a variety of new content, including:
To reduce the overhead required to introduce graphics, they decided to use WinBGIm (Windows BGI with mouse), which is a package based on the Turbo Pascal BGI (Borland Graphics Interface) library. WinBGIm was created to run on top of the Win32 library by Michael Main and his students at the University of Colorado. Several development platforms appropriate for CS 1 courses have incorporated WinBGIm. Quincy (developed by Al Stevens) is an open-source student-oriented C++ IDE that includes WinBGIm as well as more advanced libraries (http://www.codecutter.net/tools/quincy). A command-line platform based on the open-source GNU g++ compiler and the emacs program editor is distributed by the University of Colorado (http://www.codecutter.net/tools/winbgim). WinBGIm is also available for Bloodshed Software's Dev-C++ and Microsoft's Visual Studio C++.
