Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of Learning C++ (2014).
If you have access to the Exercise Files for this course, you can use them to follow along with me. You need to copy the Exercise Files folder to a location on your machine where you can use it. For example, maybe copy it to your desktop folder. Here in the Exercise Files folder, you'll find a folder for each of the chapters for the course. For each of the lessons you can open up the associated .cpp file in your IDE of choice, or open them in a plain text editor and copy and paste the code into an Eclipse project.
I'll show you how to do that later in the course. Some of the movies have other files as well like text files that we'll read from and write to. Whether you're using an Eclipse project or another environment, make sure those files are in the same folder as your project file.
