Example text

A C compiler has been part of that operating system ever since. In the early 1980s, Bjarne Stoustroup used C as the basis of the object-oriented C++ programming language. The ++ (plus-plus) part of the name is kind of an in-joke, which you’ll understand better after reading Chapter 11, but Mr. Stoustroup intended C++ to be the successor to C. In many ways it is, yet C remains popular. The D programming language was introduced in the early 2000s. It’s not as popular as C++, and it’s only visually similar to C.

One of my professional programmer friends said that the art form should be called debugging, not programming. Legend has it that the first computer bug was literally a bug that Grace Hopper found in the wiring of an early computer. There’s some doubt about this legend, considering that the word bug has been used since Shakespeare’s time to describe something quirky or odd. Writing source code Source code represents the part of the process that contains the programming language itself. You use a text editor to write a source code file.

Write the source code. 2. Compile the source code into object code. 3. Fix errors and repeat Steps 1 and 2. 4. Link the object code with libraries to build the program. 5. Fix errors and repeat Steps 1 through 4. 6. Run and test the program. 7. Fix bugs by repeating the entire process. Or, more frequently, the program runs fine but you want to add a feature or refine an element. Then you repeat everything. Hopefully, Steps 3, 5, and 7 don’t happen often. Still, you do a lot of fixing in the programming cycle.
