NYLXS – We are Do'ers...
We will be doing Introduction to C Programming using the book
C Programming: A Modren Approach
We'll be developing C programming notes on line as we go. This book is fairly intensive
Also we will do Perl Porgramming
using the Perl Programming Notes of NYLXS on
I'll be reediting these notes as we go, but they are fairly complete as they are
Finally, we will be learning C++ with the text
Stanley Lippman and Josee Lajoie - I have the 3rd addition
I took C++ at NYU but frankly have not nearly enough background, so I'll be making notes
and learning along with everyone else.
Anyone who wants to join is welcome to. NYLXS Accounts are available on the server for a
NYLXS membership fee of $45 (and then you need to do volunteer hours to become a voting
member). We will also use the NYLXS irc channel to meet on line weekly as announced
