About this textbook/collection

Programming fundamentals – a modular structured approach using c++

Programming Fundamentals - A Modular Structured Approach using C++ is written by Kenneth Leroy Busbee, a faculty member at Houston Community College in Houston, Texas. The materials used in this textbook/collection were developed by the author and others as independent modules for publication within the Connexions environment. Programming fundamentals are often divided into three college courses: Modular/Structured, Object Oriented and Data Structures. This textbook/collection covers the first of those three courses.

On January 10, 2013 Version 1.22 was created with the modules that make up the collection "fixed" to the their current versions. This will allow Version 1.22 to remain static with the modules as of that date.

The collection is going to be revised with a different organization of chapters along with updated modules to handle C++, Java and C# programming languages. The next version of the collection will have significant changes.

Connexions learning modules

The learning modules of this textbook/collection were written as standalone modules. Students using a collection of modules as a textbook will usually view it contents by reading the modules sequentially as presented by the author of the collection.

However, the majority of readers of these modules will find them as a result of an Internet search. The Connexions Project allows the author of a module to create web links to other Connexions modules and Internet locations. These links are shown when viewing materials on-line and are categorized into three types: Example, Prerequisite and Supplemental. The importance of each link is numbered from 1 to 3 by the author. When viewing the module each links shows a three part box with yellow or white rectangles. All three yellow means it is a strongly related link . As the yellow decreases the importance decreases.

Students using this collection for a college course should note that all of the Prerequisite links within the modules will be modules that student should have already read and most of the Supplemental links will be modules that the student will read shortly. Thus, students should use Prerequisite links for review as needed and not be overly concerned about viewing all of the Supplemental links at the first reading of this textbook/collection.

Conceptual approach

The learning modules of this textbook/collection were, for the most part, written without consideration of a specific programming language. In many cases the C++ language is discussed as part of the explanation of the concept. Often the examples used for C++ are exactly the same for the Java programming language. However, some modules were written specifically for the C++ programming language. This could not be avoided as the C++ language is used in conjunction with this textbook/collection by the author in teaching college courses.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google

anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
