must have comments that identify you, the project in the book, and what
you are doing!
Hand in UML diagrams for all classes you declare. You can draw these by hand
on you code listings.
Make the code as simple and as clear as you can:
Do the simplest thing that can possibly work first, and then use
Don't repeat yourself to improve the code.
I want to be able
to read your code and know what it does, and what it should do!
Comments should explain anything complicated or buggy.
Our grading method is described in the CSci202 syllabus.
Hand in the code. No cover sheets, folders, etc. No test runs.
Print it out, staple it, and hand it in!
We will forgive some incomplete or buggy work as long as you explain what
This project may not be resubmitted.
Don't be surprised if a test requires you to recall what you
did when you wrote this project.

- accessor::=`A Function that accesses information in an object with out changing the object in any visible way".
In C++ this is called a "const function".
In the UML it is called a query.
- Algorithm::=A precise description of a series of steps to attain a goal,
[ Algorithm ]
- class::="A description of a set of similar objects that have similar data plus the functions needed to manipulate the data".
- constructor::="A Function in a class that creates new objects in the class".
- Data_Structure::=A small data base.
- destructor::=`A Function that is called when an object is destroyed".
- Function::programming=A selfcontained and named piece of program that knows how to do something.
- Gnu::="Gnu's Not Unix", a long running open source project that supplies a
very popular and free C++ compiler.
- mutator::="A Function that changes an object".
- object::="A little bit of knowledge -- some data and some know how". An
object is instance of a class.
- objects::=plural of object.
- OOP::="Object-Oriented Programming",
Current paradigm for programming.
- Semantics::=Rules determining the meaning of correct statements in a language.
- SP::="Structured Programming",
a previous paradigm for programming.
- STL::="The standard C++ library of classes and functions" -- also called the
"Standard Template Library" because many of the classes and functions will work
with any kind of data.
- Syntax::=The rules determining the correctness and structure of statements in a language, grammar.
- Q::software="A program I wrote to make software easier to develop",
- TBA::="To Be Announced", something I should do.
- TBD::="To Be Done", something you have to do.
- UML::="Unified Modeling Language".
- void::C++Keyword="Indicates a function that has no return".
