The course meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM in WW201.

The course was developed (long ago) by Michael Lewis (in Ada) and is now taught by Evan Gallagher (in C++).

Gallagher can be found for office hours in the classroom after class on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 until... on all regularly scheduled University days ("until" means until all students have left which has been as late as 11:00!), and by appointment.

A text is useful, but not required.
You need to be reading in at least one, preferably three, best five texts as you are learning C++.
Elsewhere in this document (the texts && compilers link) several texts and online sources are listed.

You will also need access to a C++ compiler.
Since you will have an account on our departmental computer system. (if you don't, please submit a request through the department as soon as possible) you have access to a compiler there.
Elsewhere in this document (the texts && compilers link) you'll find links to others compilers.
Any ANSI standard compiler is acceptable.
Any C# compiler is not.

We assume you will have sccess to a fairly modern computer (!) for this (computer science) course.
Some portions of the course dealing with assembly language will be Intel-based.
