The C++ Subset That Covers Pascal

Part of the Undergraduate Texts in Computer Science book series (UTCS)


A frustrating part of beginning a new language is struggling to find the data structures, control structures, and embedding syntax required for the level of computational expressiveness to which one is accustomed. The aim of this chapter is to introduce that kernel of C++ which spans Pascal. Because this kernel is Pascal-like, Pascal programmers can learn it quickly and feel comfortable in C++ in short order. Familiarity with C is not required.
