Listen to your teachers when they tell you WHAT to do. But more importantly, think about it later and ask yourself WHY they told you to do it.

AMC ENGINEERING COLLEGE Notes Subject: Object Oriented Programming with C++ (10CS36) OOPS WITH C++ - 10CS36 VEENA BHAT, Department of CSE
AMC ENGINEERING COLLEGE Unit-I Introduction Object oriented Programming Object oriented Programming is defined as an approach that provides a way of modularizing programs by creating partitioned memory area for both data and functions that can be used as templates for creating copies of such modules on demand. Writing object-oriented programs involves creating classes, creating objects from those classes, and creating applications, which are stand-alone executable programs that use those objects. After being created, classes can be reused over and over again to develop new programs. Thinking in an object-oriented manner involves envisioning program components as objects that belong to classes and are similar to concrete objects in the real world; then, you can manipulate the objects and have them interrelate with each other to achieve a desired result. Basic Concepts of Object oriented Programming 1. Class A class is a user defined data type. A class is a logical abstraction of an object. A class specifies both code and data. It is not until an object of that class has been created that a physical representation of that class exists in memory. When you define a class, you declare the data that it contains and the code that operates on that data. Data is contained in class known as data members, and code is contained in functions known as member functions. 2. Object An object is an identifiable entity with specific characteristics and behavior. An object is said to be an instance of a class. Defining an object is similar to defining a variable of any data type. Space is set aside for it in memory. 3. Encapsulation Encapsulation is a programming mechanism that binds together code and the data it manipulates, and that keeps both safe from outside interference and misuse. C++’s basic unit of encapsulation is the class. Within a class, code or data or both may be private to that object or public. Private code or data is known to and accessible by only another part of the object. That is, private code or data cannot be accessed by a piece of the program that exists outside the object. When code or data is public, other parts of your program can access it even though it is defined within an object. Typically, the public parts of an object are used to provide a controlled interface to the private elements of the object. This insulation of the data from direct access by the program is called data hiding. 4. Data abstraction In object oriented programming, each object will have external interfaces through which it can be made use of. There is no need to look into its inner details. The object itself may be made of many smaller objects again with proper interfaces. The user needs to know the external interfaces only to make use of an object. The internal details of the objects are hidden which makes them abstract. The technique of hiding internal details in an object is called data abstraction.

AMC ENGINEERING COLLEGE 5. Inheritance Inheritance is the mechanism by which one class can inherit the properties of another. It allows a hierarchy of classes to be build, moving from the most general to the most specific. When one class is inherited by another, the class that is inherited is called the base class. The inheriting class is called the derived class. In general, the process of inheritance begins with the definition of a base class. The base class defines all qualities that will be common to any derived class. . In OOPs, the concept of inheritance provides the idea of reusability. In essence, the base class represent the most general description of a set of traits. The derived class inherits those general traits and adds properties that are specific to that class. 6. Polymorphism Polymorphism is a feature that allows one interface to be used for a general class of actions. The concept of polymorphism is often expressed by the phrase “one interface, multiple methods.” Polymorphism Compile time Run time Polymorphism Polymorphism Function overloading Operator overloading Virtual functions In compile time polymorphism, the compiler is able to select the appropriate function for a particular call at compile time. In C++, it is possible to use one function name for many different purposes. This type of polymorphism is called function overloading. Polymorphism can also be applied to operators. Operators are given additional meaning to handle objects.In that case, it is called operator overloading. In run time polymorphism, the compiler selects the appropriate function for a particular call while the program is running. C++ supports a mechanism known as virtual functions to achieve run time polymorphism. Need for Object oriented Programming Object-oriented programming scales very well, provides bottom up approach,complexity can be handled in efficient manner,provides data abstraction.

AMC ENGINEERING COLLEGE Benefits of Object oriented Programming 1. Simplicity: Software objects model real world objects, so the complexity is reduced and the program structure is very clear. 2. Modularity: Each object forms a separate entity whose internal workings are decoupled from other parts of the system. 3. Modifiability: It is easy to make minor changes in the data representation or the procedures in an OO program. Changes inside a class do not affect any other part of a program, since the only public interface that the external world has to a class is through the use of methods. 4. Extensibility: adding new features or responding to changing operating environments can be solved by introducing a few new objects and modifying some existing ones. 5. Maintainability: objects can be maintained separately, making locating and fixing problems easier. 6. Re-usability: objects can be reused in different programs. C++ C++ is an object oriented programming language. It was developed by Bjarne Stroustrup in 1979 at Bell Laboratories in Murray Hill, New Jersey. He initially called the new language "C with Classes." However, in 1983 the name was changed to C++. C++ is a superset of C. Stroustrup built C++ on the foundation of C, including all of C’s features, attributes, and benefits. Most of the features that Stroustrup added to C were designed to support object-oriented programming .These features comprise of classes, inheritance, function overloading and operator overloading. C++ has many other new features as well, including an improved approach to input/output (I/O) and a new way to write comments. A Simple C++ Program #include<iostream.h> #include<conio.h> int main() { cout<< “Simple C++ program without using class”; return 0; } Lines beginning with a hash sign (#) are directives read and interpreted by what is known as the preprocessor. They are special lines interpreted before the compilation of the program itself begins. In this case, the directive #include <iostream.h>, instructs the preprocessor to include a section of standard C++ code, known as header iostream that allows to perform standard input and output operations, such as writing the output of this program to the screen.
