    10342
  • Learning Objectives

    With 100% accuracy during a: memory building activity, exercises, lab assignment, problems, or timed quiz/exam; the student is expected to:

    1. Define the terms on the definitions as listed in the modules associated with this chapter.
    2. Identify which selection control structures are commonly used a counting loops.
    3. Be able to write pseudo code or flowcharting for the for control structure.
    4. Be able to write C++ source code for a for control structure.
    5. When feasible, be able to convert C++ source code from while loop acting like a counting loop to a for loop and and vice versa.

    Lab Assignment

    Creating a Folder or Sub-Folder for Chapter 15 Files

    Depending on your compiler/IDE, you should decide where to download and store source code files for processing. Prudence dictates that you create these folders as needed prior to downloading source code files. A suggested sub-folder for the Bloodshed Dev-C++ 5 compiler/IDE might be named:

    • Chapter_15 within the folder named: Cpp_Source_Code_Files

    If you have not done so, please create the folder(s) and/or sub-folder(s) as appropriate.

    Download the Lab File(s)

    Download and store the following file(s) to your storage device in the appropriate folder(s). You may need to right click on the link and select "Save Target As" in order to download the file.

    Download from Connexions: Lab_15a.cpp

    Detailed Lab Instructions

    Read and follow the directions below carefully, and perform the steps in the order listed.

    • Compile and run the Lab_15a.cpp source code file. Understand how it works.
    • Copy the source code file Lab_15a.cpp naming it: Lab_15b.cpp
    • Convert the code that is counting (all four attributes) to a for loop.
    • Build (compile and run) your program.
    • After you have successfully written this program, if you are taking this course for college credit, follow the instructions from your professor/instructor for submitting it for grading.

    Problems

    Problem 15a - Instructions

    Using proper C++ syntax, convert the following for loop to a while loop.

    C++ source code
    for (x = 0; x < 10; x++)
      {
      cout << "Having fun!";
      }
