Programming and Problem Solving with C++, 2/e

Abstract Data Type (ADT) a data type whose properties (domain and operations) are specified (what) independently of any particular implementation (how) 1 ADT Specification Example TYPE Time DOMAIN Each Time value is a time in hours, minutes, and seconds. OPERATIONS Set the time Print the time Increment by one second Compare 2 times for equality Determine if one time is less than another 2 Several Possible Representations of

Time 3 int variables 10 45 27 3 strings 10 45 27 3-element int array 10 45 27 actual choice of representation depends on time, space, and algorithms needed to

implement operations 3 class Time Specification // SPECIFICATION FILE ( time.h ) class Time // declares a class data type { // does not allocate memory public : // 5 public function members void set ( int hours , int mins , int secs ) ; int getHour(); int getMins(); int getSecs(); void increment ( ) ; void write ( ) const ; bool

Equal ( Time otherTime ) const ; bool LessThan ( Time otherTime ) const ; private : // 3 private data members int hour ; int mins ; int secs ; }; 4 4 Use of C++ data Type class software that uses the class is called a client variables

of the class type are called class objects or class instances client code uses public member functions to handle its class objects 5 Client Code Using Time #include Time.h // includes specification of the class int main ( ) { Time time1, time2 ; // declares 2 objects of TimeType int h,m,s; cout<>h>>m>>s; time1.set (h, m, s ) ; time2 = time1; time1.increment(); time1.write(); time2.write();

if( time1.Equal(time2)) cout<<" times are equal\n"; if( time1.LessThan(time2)) cout<<"times 1 is less than time2\n"; time2.set(23, 59,55); cout<<"Increment time from 23:59:55\n"; for( int i = 1; i <=10; i++) { time2.write(); cout<<"\t"; time2.increment(); } return 0; } 6 6 class represents an ADT 2 kinds of class members: function members data members and class members are private by default data members are generally private function members are generally declared public private class members can be accessed only by the class member functions (and friend functions), not by client code. 7 class Operations

built-in operations valid on class objects are: member selection using dot ( . ) operator , assignment to another class variable using ( = ), pass to a function as argument (by value or by reference), return as value of a function other operations can be defined as class member functions 8 2 files Generally Used for class Type // SPECIFICATION FILE ( Time .h ) // Specifies the data and function members. class TimeType { public: . . . private: . . .

}; // IMPLEMENTATION FILE ( Time.cpp ) // Implements the Time member functions. 9 Information Hiding Class implementation details are hidden from the clients view. This is called information hiding. Public functions of a class provide the interface between the client code and the class objects. client code a bs specification trac bar tion rier implementation

specification file main program Time.h client.cpp implementation file Time.cpp #include Time.h Compiler Compiler client.obj Time.obj Linker client.exe 12

Avoiding Multiple Inclusion of Header Files often several program files use the same header file containing typedef statements, constants, or class type declarations--but, it is a compile-time error to define the same identifier twice this preprocessor directive syntax is used to avoid the compilation error that would otherwise occur from multiple uses of #include for the same header file #ifndef Preprocessor_Identifier #define Preprocessor_Identifier . . . #endif 13
