Problem Solving and Program Design in C : Seventh Edition


Problem Solving and Program Design in C teaches a disciplined approach to problem
solving, applying widely accepted software engineering methods to design
program solutions as cohesive, readable, reusable modules. We present as an
implementation vehicle for these modules a subset of ANSI C—a standardized,
industrial-strength programming language known for its power and portability. This
text can be used for a first course in programming methods: It assumes no prior
knowledge of computers or programming. The text’s broad selection of case studies
and exercises allows an instructor to design an introductory programming course in
C for computer science majors or for students from a wide range of other disciplines.
New to this Edition
Several changes to this edition are listed below:
• Chapters 3 (Functions), 5 (Loops), and 7 (Arrays) include optional sections on
graphics programming
• Chapter 6 (Pointers and Modular Programming) includes a new section 6.1
on pointers
• New complete programs show use of if statements in Chapter 4
• New complete program shows use of switch statement in Chapter 4
• Chapter 7 (Simple Data Types) in previous edition is eliminated and its
contents integrated into other chapters of the book
• Hardware examples in Chapter 1 are updated to reflect current technology
• Several chapters contain new programming project homework problems
More About Graphics Many Computer Science faculty have recommended the
use of graphics to help motivate the study of introductory programming and as a
vehicle to help students understand how to use libraries and to call functions. We
agree with this viewpoint and have included three optional sections with graphics
examples in this edition. The new graphics sections include:
Section 3.6 : Introduction to Computer Graphics
Section 5.11 : Loops in Graphics Programs
Section 7.10 : Graphics Programs with Arrays
To reduce the overhead required to introduce graphics, we decided to use
WinBGIm (Windows BGI with mouse), which is a package based on the Turbo
Pascal BGI (Borland Graphics Interface) library. WinBGIm was created to run
on top of the Win32 library by Michael Main and his students at the University of
Colorado. Several development platforms appropriate for CS 1 courses have incorporated
WinBGIm. Quincy (developed by Al Stevens) is an open-source studentoriented
C++ IDE that includes WinBGIm as well as more advanced libraries
( ). Figure 1 shows the Quincy new project
window (File → New → Project) with WinBGIm Graphics application selected.
A command-line platform based on the open-source GNU g++ compiler and
the emacs program editor is distributed by the University of Colorado ( http://www. ). WinBGIm is also available for Bloodshed Software’s
Dev-C++ and Microsoft’s Visual Studio C++.
Using C to Teach Program Development
Two of our goals—teaching program design and teaching C—may be seen by some
as contradictory. C is widely perceived as a language to be tackled only after one has
learned the fundamentals of programming in some other, friendlier language. The
perception that C is excessively difficult is traceable to the history of the language.
Designed as a vehicle for programming the UNIX operating system, C found its
original clientele among programmers who understood the complexities of the operating
system and the underlying machine and who considered it natural to exploit
this knowledge in their programs. Therefore, it is not surprising that many textbooks
whose primary goal is to teach C expose the student to program examples requiring
an understanding of machine concepts that are not in the syllabus of a standard
introductory programming course.
In this text, we are able to teach both a rational approach to program development
and an introduction to ANSI C because we have chosen the first goal as
our primary one. One might fear that this choice would lead to a watered-down
treatment of ANSI C. On the contrary, we find that the blended presentation of
programming concepts and of the implementation of these concepts in C captures
a focused picture of the power of ANSI C as a high-level programming language,
a picture that is often blurred in texts whose foremost objective is the coverage of
all of ANSI C. Even following this approach of giving program design precedence
over discussion of C language features, we have arrived at coverage of the essential
constructs of C that is quite comprehensive.
Pointers and the Organization of the Book
The order in which C language topics are presented is dictated by our view of the
needs of the beginning programmer rather than by the structure of the C programming
language. The reader may be surprised to discover that there is no chapter entitled
“Pointers.” This missing chapter title follows from our treatment of C as a high-level
language, not from an absence of awareness of the critical role of pointers in C.
Whereas other high-level languages have separate language constructs for output
parameters and arrays, C openly folds these concepts into its notion of a pointer,
drastically increasing the complexity of learning the language. We simplify the
learning process by discussing pointers from these separate perspectives where such
topics normally arise when teaching other programming languages, thus, allowing
a student to absorb the intricacies of pointer usage a little at a time. Our approach
makes possible the presentation of fundamental concepts using traditional highlevel
language terminology—output parameter, array, array subscript, string—and
makes it easier for students without prior assembly language background to master
the many facets of pointer usage.
Therefore, this text has not one but four chapters that focus on pointers.
Chapter 6 (Pointers and Modular Programming) begins with a discussion of pointers,
indirect reference, and the use of pointers to files (moved from Chapter 2 ). It
then discusses the use of pointers as simple output and input/output parameters,
Chapter 7 deals with arrays, Chapter 8 presents strings and arrays of pointers.
Chapter 11 discusses file pointers again. Chapter 13 describes dynamic memory
allocation after reviewing pointer uses previously covered.
Software Engineering Concepts
The book presents many aspects of software engineering. Some are explicitly discussed
and others are taught only by example. The connection between good problem-solving
skills and effective software development is established early in Chapter 1 with a section
that discusses the art and science of problem solving. The five-phase software
development method presented in Chapter 1 is used to solve the first case study and is
applied uniformly to case studies throughout the text. Major program style issues are
highlighted in special displays, and the coding style used in examples is based on guidelines
followed in segments of the C software industry. There are sections in several
chapters that discuss algorithm tracing, program debugging, and testing.
Chapter 3 introduces procedural abstraction through selected C library functions,
parameterless void functions, and functions that take input parameters and
return a value. Chapters 4 and 5 include additional function examples including the
use of a function as a parameter and Chapter 6 completes the study of functions
that have simple parameters. The chapter discusses the use of pointers to represent
output and input/output parameters.
Case studies and sample programs in Chapters 6 , 7 , and 10 introduce by example
the concepts of data abstraction and encapsulation of a data type and operators.
Chapter 12 presents C’s facilities for formalizing procedural and data abstraction
in personal libraries defined by separate header and implementation files. Chapter
14 (on the textbook website) introduces essential concepts of multiprocessing, such
as parent and child processes, interprocess communication, mutual exclusion locking,
and dead lock avoidance. Chapter 15 (on the textbook website) describes how
object-oriented design is implemented by C++.
The use of visible function interfaces is emphasized throughout the text. We do
not mention the possibility of using a global variable until Chapter 12 , and then we
carefully describe both the dangers and the value of global variable usage.
Pedagogical Features
We employ the following pedagogical features to enhance the usefulness of this
book as a learning tool:
End-of-Section Exercises Most sections end with a number of Self-Check
Exercises. These include exercises that require analysis of program fragments as
well as short programming exercises. Answers to selected Self-Check Exercises
appear online at in the directory for “Hanly”.
Examples and Case Studies The book contains a wide variety of programming
examples. Whenever possible, examples contain complete programs or functions
rather than incomplete program fragments. Each chapter contains one or more
substantial case studies that are solved following the software development method.
Numerous case studies give the student glimpses of important applications of
computing, including database searching, business applications such as billing and
sales analysis, word processing, and environmental applications such as radiation
level monitoring and water conservation.
Syntax Display Boxes The syntax displays describe the syntax and semantics of
new C features and provide examples.
Program Style Displays The program style displays discuss major issues of good
programming style.
Error Discussions and Chapter Review Each chapter concludes with a
section that discusses common programming errors. The Chapter Review includes
a table of new C constructs.
End-of-Chapter Exercises Quick-Check Exercises with answers follow each
Chapter Review. There are also review exercises available in each chapter.
End-of-Chapter Projects Each chapter ends with Programming Projects giving
students an opportunity to practice what they learned in the chapter.
Reference tables of ANSI C constructs appear on the inside covers of the book.
Because this text covers only a subset of ANSI C, the appendices play a vital role
in increasing the value of the book as a reference. Throughout the book, array
referencing is done with subscript notation; Appendix A is the only coverage
of pointer arithmetic. Appendix B is an alphabetized table of ANSI C standard
libraries. The table in Appendix C shows the precedence and associativity of all
ANSI C operators; the operators not previously defined are explained in this
appendix. Appendix D presents character set tables, and Appendix E lists all ANSI
C reserved words.
