cisc1110: introduction to computing using c++, gaming applications
Updated LATE Policy
Please check out the updated policy on late assignments.
How do I work on programs at home?
- If you are using a PC, Mac or Linux platform, you can use
the Code::Blocks Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
FYI, the Code::Blocks home page is
- To download Code::Blocks Version 10.05 for Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7, click
Note that the file downloaded (codeblocks-10.05mingw-setup.exe) includes the GCC compiler and GDB debugger from MinGW.
- To download Code::Blocks Version 10.05 for Mac OS X, click
- To select and download for a variety of 32-bit and 64-bit Linux platforms, go directly to the
Code::Blocks download page.
Detailed Installation and Getting Started instructions are here:
for PC and for Mac.
Quick-Start Instructions for using CodeBlocks can be found
(Note that these instructions are for building single program files without creating a project, which is a bit less complicated than using a project---something we'll do later in the term.)
- If you are using a MAC, you can also use the Xcode Integrated Development Environment (IDE).
Information about downloading and installing Xcode (aka "Xcode Developer Tools") can be found
NOTE: Xcode also comes on the Mac OS X Install CDs, so you may not have to download it if you still have your CDs.
Quick-Start Instructions for using Xcode can be found
(Note that these instructions are for building programs within a project, which is a bit more complicated than Code::Blocks, above, without a project.)
Course information sheet (download)
During the semester, any announcements for the class will be placed here.
I hope you enjoy the semester and learn many cool things about game programming and controlling computers!
Please feel free to contact me with any questions and/or concerns.
Email is by far the best way to reach me!
