Course detail

Programming Methods I

FSI-0S1Acad. year: 2018/2019

The course familiarises students with Computer language PASCAL implemented in the environment Borland DELPHI – constants and variables, procedures, functions, cycles, elementary data types. Also dealt with is array, list, front, LIFO-structure. Sorted array, matrixes, Gauss elimination. Elementary text works. Recursive procedures and functions and their use.
