C and C based languages module C211
Standard Libraries and other headers
Exercises, examples and other material relating to training module C211. This topic is presented on public courses Learning to Program in C, Learning to program in C++, Programming in C, C and C++ Programming

Background
If you want to do something and think "surely that's been done before", then it probably has been. C is supplied with a library of standard funcions and header files that save you the need to rewrite many of the basics that you'll need, and we'll introduce you to these standard components in this module. We'll also show you where to find other sources of code that's already written, and suggest that you might like to share your work similarly.

3148OpenGL / C / C++ - an example to get you started
A Computer Graphics application in C / C++ - that's the coding that one of my delegates is going to be doing for her "real work" after this week's course, and I found myself looking back to old times - when I used (amongst other things) to subcontract to Silicon Graphics to present courses on their GL ...

2575Sharing variables between files of code in C - extern
In C, If you want to share a variable between a number of functions, you can declare it at the top of your file, outside the functions. It's then an element that's held in memory all the time and available to all your functions. Since your functions are separate elements which are joined together at ...
