- Students are expected to have the basic knowledge of algorithmization in Python or another procedural language. Students are also required to have user experience with Unix/Linux OS, as homework is submitted and tested on a Unix/Linux server.
- Course Enrolment Limitations
- The course is also offered to the students of the fields other than those the course is directly associated with.
- fields of study / plans the course is directly associated with
- there are 60 fields of study the course is directly associated with, display
- Course objectives
- At the end of the course students should be able to:
Understand and use basic C syntax according to ANSI and ISO/IEC norms.
Decompose given problem and perform practical implementation.
Use modern development tools (IDE, debugger, version control...).
Understand basic C functions for POSIX system.
Annotate source code with possibility to automatically generate documentation. Understand and practically use documentation for existing functions.
Use and follow programming best practices.
Compile programs both under Unix/Linux and Windows.
- Learning outcomes
- After a course completion, the student will be able to:
- write non-trivial programs in C language;
- use basic development tools including IDE, debugger, versioning system and dynamic analysis of memory use;
- understand code execution on the level of CPU and memory;
- use dynamic allocation and apply correct deallocation where necessary;
- write programs with an application of good programming practices;
- Historical background of the C language. Its relation to the Unix OS.
- C compilers under Unix and MS-DOS/MS-Windows, integrated development environment, debugger, version control. Good programming practices, testing.
- Data types, constants, declarations, expressions. Assignment expressions and statements.
- Basic program structure. Preprocessor statements. Comments. Control structures. Relational expressions. Elementary I/O operations.
- Arrays and pointers. Functions. Calling by value, passing arguments by pointer.
- User defined data types. Dynamic memory allocation.
- I/O in details. Using files. Wide characters.
- Strings and string manipulation. Standard C library according to ANSI and ISO/IEC standards. Calling Unix core services. Further Unix libraries for C. POSIX C Library. Implementation on Windows.
- Safe and defensive programming.
- Automated and manual testing.

- Teaching methods
- Teaching consists from theoretical lectures combined with the practical exercises and programming homework selected to practice topics from lectures.
- Assessment methods
- To be allowed to participate in final exam, a student student will undertake 6 programming homework (at least four of them for non-zero points) and participate in one final programming exercise consisting of test and practical programming exercise. 85 points are required to pass the course in addition to successful completion of requirements of practical exercises.
The students are working on given homework (usually finalized at home or in computer lab). Homework are awarded by point according to given criteria. Recommended finalization is exam, which is maintained as test questionnaire on computer. Precondition for undertake exam is to have awarded credit from practical exercises and autonomously programmed final assignment. Classification is based on points gathered from exercises, test questionnaire and final assignment. Participation on practical exercises is mandatory, unless teacher allows for exception (e.g., based on student exceptional knowledge of the subject).
