|Subject Overview:||In many projects, it is important for programmers to have fine control over low-level details of program execution. This subject introduces students to a system programming language that gives programmers this kind of control, and to the knowledge required to use this control to design efficient and effective programs. Topics include: introduction to computer organization; machine level representation of data; programming in an assembly language; programming in a system programming language; using dynamic memory allocation; multi-module programs; build tools; program testing; and standard software development tools such as debuggers.|
On successful completion of this subject students should be able to:
|Assessment:||Project work during semester, expected to take about 24 hours (30%); a mid-semester test (10%); and a 2-hour end-of-semester written examination (60%).
