Join Peggy Fisher for an in-depth discussion in this video Using predefined functions, part of Learning C++ (2014).
…There are several useful standard code libraries…that have already been written for us.…In this video, we will review a few of these libraries.…Let's start with the string library.…It has the functions, getline, length, sub string,…and a sub string that takes two parameters.…The next library's the math library.…It includes a square root function, a power…function which helps us to raise a variable…to a power, the sin function, cosine, and…the absolute value of a floating point number.…
We will use the iomanip library quite often.…It helps us to format the output.…We can use the fixed function to add trailing zeros.…We can use left and right to line our data up.…This is especially handy when you're trying to print data out in columns.…We can use set fill and provide a fill character.…Set precision indicates how many places after the decimal point to include.…And set width tells the computer how wide we…want to allocate for each variable when we print it.…The cstdlib includes rand, which allows us to generate a random number.…
