IDEs provide tools that support the software-development process, including editors for writing and editing programs and debuggers for locating logic errors—errors that cause programs to execute incorrectly. Popular IDEs include Microsoft® Visual Studio 2010 Express Edition, Dev C++, NetBeans, Eclipse and CodeLite. Phase 2: Preprocessing a C++ Program In Phase 2, you give the command to compile the program (Fig. 7). In a C++ system, a preprocessor program executes automatically before the compiler’s translation phase begins (so we call preprocessing Phase 2 and compiling Phase 3).
The keyboard, screen, mouse, hard disks, memory, DVDs and processing units). Computing costs are dropping dramatically, owing to rapid developments in hardware and software technologies. Computers that might have filled large rooms and cost millions of dollars decades ago are now inscribed on silicon chips smaller than a fingernail, costing perhaps a few dollars each. Ironically, silicon is one of the most abundant materials—it’s an ingredient in common sand. Silicon-chip technology has made computing so economical that more than a billion general-purpose computers are in use worldwide, and this is expected to double in the next few years.
Phase 2: Preprocessing a C++ Program In Phase 2, you give the command to compile the program (Fig. 7). In a C++ system, a preprocessor program executes automatically before the compiler’s translation phase begins (so we call preprocessing Phase 2 and compiling Phase 3). The C++ preprocessor obeys commands called preprocessor directives, which indicate that certain manipulations are to be performed on the program before compilation. These manipulations usually include other text files to be compiled, and perform various text replacements.
