In Starting Out with C++: Early Objects, Gaddis covers objects and classes early after functions and before arrays and pointers. As with all Gaddis texts, clear and easy-to-read code listings, concise and practical real-world examples, and an abundance of exercises appear in every chapter. This text is intended for either a one-semester accelerated introductory course or a traditional two-semester sequence covering C++ programming.
Welcome to Starting Out with C++: Early Objects, 7th Edition. This book is intended for use
in a two-term or three-term C++ programming sequence, or an accelerated one-term course.
Students new to programming, as well those with prior course work in other languages, will
find this text beneficial. The fundamentals of programming are covered for the novice, while
the details, pitfalls, and nuances of the C++ language are explored in-depth for both the
beginner and more experienced student.
The precursors of object-oriented programming can be traced back to the late 1960's: Classes, inheritance
and virtual member functions were integral features of Simula67, a programming language that was
mainly used for writing event-driven simulations. When Smalltalk first appeared back in 1972, it offered
a pure object-oriented programming environment. In fact, Smalltalk defined object-oriented
programming. This style of programming was so innovative and revolutionary at the time that it took
more than a decade for it to become a standard in the software industry.
Chapter 0 - Introduction to computers and programming languages. This chapter present some background information on computers and programming languages in this optional chapter, provide a brief history of computers from the early days to present and describe the components found in today’s computers. This chapter also present a brief history of programming languages from low-level machine languages to today’s objectoriented languages.
If a method’s name contains alloc, copy or new, then it returns a retained object. Balance calls to alloc, copy, new or retain with calls to release or autorelease. Early returns can make this very difficult to do! Every technique and measure is described
and demonstrated in the context of important underlying financial and economic
concepts, but without delving into theoretical abstraction.
Dennis Ritchie at AT&T Bell Laboratories pioneered the C programming language in
the early 1970s. However, this programming language did not begin to gain widespread
popularity and support until the late 1970s.This was because, until that time, C compilers
were not readily available for commercial use outside of Bell Laboratories. Initially, this
growth in popularity was also partly spurred by the equal, if not faster, growth in popularity
of the UNIX operating system, which was written almost entirely in C.
Brad J. Cox designed the Objective-C language in the early 1980s.

Chapter 10: Motivating the workforce. This chapter include objectives: Define human relations and determine why its study is important, summarize early studies that laid the groundwork for understanding employee motivation, compare and contrast the human-relations theories of Abraham Maslow and Frederick Herzberg,...
We would like to dedicate this book to Dr. C. L.
Hwang. Through the course of his academic career,
Dr. Hwang researched and assessed an exhaustive list
of Multiple Attribute, Multiple Objective, and Group
Decision-Making techniques in both the crisp and
fuzzy environments, which are published in six of his
books. Dr. Hwang was an early pioneer in the field
of Decision Science and his contributions to this field
are still realized today in academia and at the heart of
this book. He introduced this area of study
to the authors who worked together with him
for a number of...
