Join Dan Gookin for an in-depth discussion in this video Using the exercise files, part of C: Data Structures, Pointers, and File Systems.
- [Instructor] To obtain the exercise files used in this course, download the archive from the course's webpage and expand it on your computer right on the desktop or in a specific folder, depending on your preferences. The files are organized by chapter folder. Specific movies have their own folder, inside which you'll find the source code files mentioned. Each file appears as it's first introduced in the course. You can modify the files along with me during the movies or make changes on your own as you experiment with the C language. If you use the Code::Blocks IDE, open each file individually or in groups in the workspace. Click on a tab to view the source code for each exercise file. Use the build button to compile and link the code. Any error messages show up in the build messages tab at the bottom of the screen. To run a program, click the run button. Or you can both build and run by clicking the build-and-run button. If you're viewing this course on a mobile device or HD TV, just follow along with each movie as I present the topics. You can still learn to program C. And for most of the examples, the full source code is shown on the screen so you can pause the movie and type in the code. The exercise files serve to save you time and provide examples. It's a great way to explore new and challenging concepts in the C language.
