Acknowledgments
It has been a journey of almost a decade from the stage the book idea of “Let Us C” was conceived up to the release of this Fifth Edition. During this journey I have met so many students, developers, professors, publishers and authors who expressed their opinions about Let Us C. They have been the main motivators in my effort to continuously improve this book. In particular I am indebted to Manish Jain who had a faith in this book idea, believed in my writing ability, whispered the words of encouragement and made helpful suggestions from time to time. The five editions of this book saw several changes and facelifts. During this course people like Ajay Joshi, Amol Tambat, Ajay Daga, Nandita Shastri, Mrunal Khandekar and Rahul Bedge helped in writing programs, spotting bugs, drawing figures and preparing index. I trust that with their collective acumen all the programs would run correctly in all situations. Anup Das, my…...

C&C Grocery Store

...Luis Antonio Olivares Business 418 Organizational Design and Change Case 2: C&C Grocery Stores, Inc. C&C Grocery Stores began losing market share to large company’s like Wal-Mart, Target, and Costco because they were unable to compete on prices with these large companies. They had considered ways to use advance information technology to improve service and customer satisfaction. The Improved service and customer satisfaction would distinguish C&C from large discounters and allow them to compete against them. Another problem C&C had is that the company set a standard layout for all new branches. This hierarchical layout essentially made it easier for the branches to lose Doug Cummins’s informal style and “serve the customer” attitude. The current structure created a couple of problems for C&C Grocery Stores. One of the biggest problems I noticed is that there was no support or cohesion within the managers and district supervisors. Each department manager seemed to be fighting for territory against the other department managers within the store. Almost like gangsters fighting for the same neighborhood. Instead they should have more horizontal communication to help one another. After all, they do work for the same company. The store managers were hungry to learn and improve their management skills, but they had nobody to train them. The district store supervisor, who should have been mentoring the store manager, only inspected for cleanliness.......

Comparison of C, C++, and C#

...Jason Latham Comparison of C, C++, and C# IADT Seattle The C family of languages has been a cornerstone in the programming field for years. So exactly what is the C family? It includes the C, C++ and C# (pronounced sharp) languages. Now that we know what they are, what are the differences between the three? Well, that is what will be discussed here. C is a minimalistic programming language because it could be compiled in a straightforward manner by a relatively simple compiler. C offers low-level access to memory via pointers and the ability to access specific hardware addresses. C generates only a few instructions of machine languages for each of its core language elements and does not require extensive run-time support. It can be concluded that C language is suitable for many systems-programming applications that had traditionally been implemented in assembly languages (Gabb, 2012). With its inherent low-level memory access and small run-time support, using C for embedded hardware systems is ideal. Many devices such as robots, machinery, and electronic tools are programmed utilizing its ability to access specific hardware addresses. However, as C is structured oriented programming language and focuses on the procedural programming paradigm, it is relatively hard to control the large-scale program. As C language has high level and machine level mixed programming capacity, it is used in most hardware related applications. It is very suitable for writing programs in......

...tells how well they are doing in an accounting sense. Market value ratios relate the firm’s stock price to its earnings, cash flow, and book value per share, and thus give management an indication of what investors think of the company’s past performance and future prospects. If the liquidity, asset management, debt management, and profitability ratios all look good, then the market value ratios will be high, and the stock price will probably be as high as can be expected. 16. The price/earnings (P/E) ratio, or price per share divided by earnings per share, shows how much investors are willing to pay per dollar of reported profits. 29. P/E ratios are higher for firms with strong growth prospects, other things held constant, but they are lower for riskier firms. 17. The price/cash flow ratio is the ratio of price per share divided by cash flow per share. 30. It shows the dollar amount investors will pay for $1 of cash flow. 18. The market/book (M/B) ratio, defined as market price per share divided by book value per share, gives another indication of how investors regard the company. 31. Higher M/B ratios are generally associated with firms with relatively high rates of return on common equity. 32. An M/B ratio greater than 1.0 means that investors are willing to pay more for stocks than their accounting book values. It is important to analyze trends in ratios as well as their absolute levels. Trend analysis can provide clues as to......

Специально подобраны ситуации для ролевых игр, совпадающие по тематике с разделами учебника, а также методические рекомендации студентам, готовящимся к проведению микроуроков (автор И.Н. Верещагина). Авторы ESSENTIAL COURSE Unit One text From: DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE By R. Gordon Richard Gordon was born in 1921. He has been an anaesthetist at St. Bartholomew's Hospital,1 a ship's surgeon and an assistant editor of the British Medical Journal. He left medical practice in 1952 and started writing his "Doctor" series. "Doctor in the House" is one of Gordon's twelve "Doctor" books and is noted for witty description of a medical student's years of professional training. To a medical student the final examinations are something like death: an unpleasant inevitability to be faced sooner or later, one's state after which is determined by care spent in preparing for the event. An examination is nothing more than an investigation of a man's knowledge, conducted in a way that the authorities have found the most fair and convenient to both sides. But the medical student cannot see it in this light. Examinations touch off his fighting spirit; they are a straight contest between himself and the examiners, conducted on well-established rules for both, and he goes at them like a prize-fighter. There is......

...of electricity. It is these basic principles of game design that we cover in this book—design distilled down to its basic essence. Not surprisingly, many of today’s greatest game designers got their start playing and designing non-digital games, and some still use paper prototyping in their present-day designs. When thinking of game design, think in terms of the board game Go, a Chinese game thousands of years old (see Figure 1.2). It requires no computer programming or polygon models to play. Yet its rules, simple as they are, allow for a depth of strategy so great that it is still played heavily today. While many of the games enjoyed today may not be as popular as Go a thousand years from now, there is no reason why such a game could not be created. FIGURE 1.2 Go board. Image from the Wikipedia Commons Chapter 1 The Basics T YPES OF 5 D ESIGN Just as there are many types of games, there are many types of game design, too. World design is the creation of the overall backstory, setting, and theme of the game. While it’s generally performed by the lead or sole designer, it often determines the scope of the other design tasks listed below. System design is the creation of rules and underlying mathematical patterns in a game. This is the only game design task that is common to all games, because all games have rules. Therefore, most of the challenges in this book involve system design. In particular, Chapters 2, 5, 6, 7 and 8 give a......
