Lab 4: Instructor's Notes

In this exercise, students build a separately compiled class containing metric conversion methods (simple, but useful).

Using a user-defined, separately compiled module with a program can change translation to a multistep process:

  1. Compile module classes.
  2. Compile the client code.

To organize a program which has separate components is the role of the Project or Make file.

We provide "starter" files in the exercise for each of the components in the lab exercise:, and Metric.doc.
